Celebrate Card with New Flower Stamps

September 13, 2021
Hello again, Annette Green back again this month with a simple and elegant anniversary card I created for my parents who celebrated their 60th recently. Here’s how I made it…
First, I stamped some images from the Gratitude stamp set onto watercolor cardstock with archival black ink. Then I used my ECD watercolors to color them. The design of the images has stippled dots which are perfect little hints where the deepest shadows are, so I painted those areas a little darker.

Next, I used the compatible dies (coming soon!) to cut them out. This is such a great time saver!
After cutting a pretty paper for the front of my card, I selected a stencil that had a small, pretty repeating pattern. (Stencil to come soon too!)
Next, I spread some clear texture paste through the stencil onto my pattern paper. I gently lifted the stencil away and set it aside to dry completely.
You can see how this adds lovely texture and dimension to the paper once dry.
Onto some ivory cardstock, I stamped Celebrate and drew in the black drop shadow with a marker, then added some ink around the edges and some tiny dots in a compatible green color.
My ivory card base is 5″ x 7″. I layered some black paper first, then the pattern paper, and added a die-cut doily.
Next, I started layering elements flat onto the card.
To finish off the front, I added the final die-cut flower piece with dimensional foam tape to pop it up.
A little bit of stamping on the inside and the card is done! Super simple, but very elegant. Thanks for visiting today. Have a great day!
