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.
Celebrate card by Lori Williams
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.
