Pink & Main

April 9, 2020

Good Morning Friends! Today, I am on the Pink & Main Blog sharing a bright and cheerful card. I usually post on Sundays for Pink & Main, but with this Sunday being Easter I thought I would share on a different day this week. It is hard to keep track of the days right now, so I didn't want to confuse anyone that is trying to keep it all straight, haha!

I am sharing a card that uses the Gorgeous paper from the Enchanted Garden Paper Pad. Typically I start with my stamps and stamping, but today I made my card in reverse. I knew I wanted to use this paper to create my card design so I started there. I created my card panel by layering a few different patterns that coordinated well together. That is one thing nice about using a paper pad, you know that the colors and prints will coordinate. Next, I stamped my vase and flowers from the Gorgeous Vases Stamp Set. I colored the flowers with Copic markers and then used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

Next, I used a Stitched Rectangle Die to die cut my white rectangle. I needed to add the white space to my card front to anchor my stamped image and so it wouldn't get "lost" in the patterned paper. Lastly, I stamped my sentiment from the Just Because Stamp Set and die cut it with a Sentiment Strip Die. This is such a great set of sentiments, perfect for adding to cards right now.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope you all are doing well and staying healthy. Take care my friends. I will be back tomorrow with a card for PoppyStamps. I hope you join me.

Enjoy your day,
