I designed this card for my friend and coworker, Jeannie, to be signed by everyone at work. She is a nature-lover and I knew she would love it.
I stamped the large flower image on the white cardstock first (main image) and then stamped it again on a piece of scrap paper. This card using the masking technique. First, I cut out the scrap flower and placed it on top of my main image to serve as a mask. After inking the vine image in So Saffron ink, I stamped it all around the main flower, which was masked to prevent it from being covered with ink. Then I removed the mask and stamped the 2 leaf images. The center of the button is threaded with “faux thread” (a thin strip of cardstock).
Stamp sets: vintage vogue, well scripted; Inks: rose red, so saffron, old olive; Cardstock: so saffron, old olive, whisper white, welcome neighbor DSP pad; Embellishments: rose red 1/4” grosgrain ribbon, rich regals button
