The SweetestPosted: April 1, 2015
Celebratory cards continue to be the feature over on the Penny Black blog. These week the design team has created cards for Mom or Mum as I would spell it. I was pleased to see that a ‘Mum’ stamp included in the new mini set ‘The Sweetest’. To create my clean and simple card I inked the little floral corner stamp with memento markers, spritzed it with water and stamped on watercolour paper. I spritzed the stamp again without re-inking to get a paler image to the right of the first impression.
I used a banner die to create a little tag for the sentiment and echoed the shape on three corners of the panel with the ticket corner punch. I added a little bow to the tag before popping it up over the panel then attached the whole panel to a blue mat and then to the cream card base.
Karen is hosting the April One Layer Simplicity Challenge so pop on over and check out her oh-so-cool card. I’m sure you’ll get inspired to participate.
