This is one of my favorite stamp sets from Catherine Pooler Designs Welcome Home Release.
It's called the Cottage Garden Background Stamp and it's gorgeous!
You can buy it on it's own or as part of a bundle which I think I need to order.
I also used the new Awesome & Wonderful stamp set and yes, it's properly named :)
Now for the card. How did I make this you ask?
Well, let me tell you :)
I started by inking up the background stamp with versamark ink and stamping it onto a piece of Sand Dunes Cardstock and then heat setting it with Gold Embossing Powder.
I grabbed some pencil crayons and started coloring. I used a white for the flowers and a couple of greens for the leaves. I was going to stop there because I wanted the color of the cardstock to show but I decided to add some shading. I grabbed a gray pencil crayon and went around all the edges and then blended it out with the white pencil crayon.
I stared at it thinking, 'Now what do I do for a sentiment?'
Vellum Cardstock to the rescue!
I stamped the sentiment with versamark onto a strip of vellum cut longer than the width of the panel. I heat set it with the same gold embossing powder as I used on the background. When it cooled I wrapped it around the panel and adhered it to the back. I added a piece of craft foam to the back of the panel and adhered that to the card base.
I showed this card to my husband and he said, 'Wow, how long did that take you?' It actually was very quick to make and easy too.
