Despite how much I like to make cards, I still end up late for most occasions. In this case, I needed to make a belated birthday card for my cousin Andrea.
As an alternative to stamping a design in one color and filling it in with markers, I sometimes like to ink up a stamp with markers for a different effect.
On white cardstock, I stamped the flower stamp several times using Memento Markers as the ink. Then I used the markers to fill in the rest of the color. With the Fiskars punch, I cut out the flowers.
With a Silhouette Cameo, I cut scalloped circle shapes 1.5″ from the white cardstock. I inked the shapes with VersaMagic Ink, then sprayed them with Sheer Shimmer Spritz. (I reserved one unsprayed scalloped shape for the sentiment.)
To assemble, I placed three of the flowers on the circle portion of the diecuts; for the remaining two, I used the outer scalloped ring as a border. I placed one scalloped ring at a corner without a flower.
I affixed the shapes with regular and dimensional adhesive to make two of the flowers pop. I used gold-tinged ribbon from May Arts that picks up the gold in the Shimmer Spritz.
I stamped the sentiment onto the remaining scalloped shape. I adhered the circle with dimensional adhesive but used regular adhesive for the border. I love the effect of part of the sentiment in 3-D.
Happy belated birthday, Andrea!
