This card I made for my clean & simple CASE card swap that I am currently hosting. For my swap we were to CASE (copy and share everything) any clean & simple card we found in the card gallery (on splitcoast stampers) and I decided to case this card made by Crystal.
I kept the same layout and I used the same technique as she did, but I changed the colors, I used a different sentiment, and I used a different color ribbon. Over all my card looks almost exactly like hers, but I really didn't want to make a lot of changes because I liked it so much.
First, I stamped the flower stems using certainly celery ink. Next, using my stamp-a-ma-jig, I stamped the flowers using a technique called rock n' roll.
I used my scallop border punch for the punched border along the top of the card. I really like how the border punch was used along the top portion of the card rather than on the bottom.
I decided to use this sentiment (found in the same stamp set) because I thought it would make a really nice Mother's day card. I simply stamped my sentiment, punched it using my circle punch, and then I placed it onto my card using dimensionals. Lastly, I tied my ribbon in a knot and then I placed it just above my sentiment using a glue dot- what a great ribbon treatment! Plus it's a great way to use of some of those ribbon scraps I always save!
Have a great day! Tomorrow I'm planning on posting a card I made using my I Heart (Hearts) stamp set.
