Graphic 45 Botanical Celebrate card by designer Lori Williams


Hello all, it’s Lori here with you today sharing a card I created that’s a bit of a twist.  A twist?  Yep, I used the Graphic 45 Botanical Tea paper and stamp set, yet it’s a tone on tone.  The Botanical Tea Collection is one that is full of pinks, blues and greens so you can see why I say this card is a twist.

I like to add lots of layers and dimensions to my card with foam tape.  I may have stacks of foam tape four times high on some of my cards.  I also ink many of my edges on card which gives another layer.  This card was fairly easy.  It’s a 5” x 7” card.  The patterned paper has all been layered onto cream card stock and all the edges inked.  I stamped the border stamp three times and then colored in with a yellow watercolor pencil for a little extra highlight.  Across the edge of the border is a decorative punch ink and glued to the back of the border stamp.  The lemon stamp was stamped using momento brown ink and then I colored in the lemon with the yellow watercolor pencil.  I finished it all off with four little metal brads in the corners of the stamped image and set with more foam tape.  

I really love the vintage look of the finished card.  If you would like to give one of this a whirl for yourself, please see the supply list below.
