My card today is inspired by the colours of Soft Sea Foam, So Saffron and Petal Pink as I’m playing along in the Global Design Project Color Challenge.
I immediately thought of creating a vintage look card with an aged feel and the Lovely Lattice stamp set seemed it could work for this. I wanted to recreate the look of cards my parents used to get, over 40 years ago, on their wedding anniversary – the flowers with the distressed look on cream card.
For many years I used to create paper tole images and when I started creating this card, something inside me snapped (for want of a better word) and made me want to create different layers to these flowers. If you don’t like fussy cutting – fear not. Get yourself some Stampin’ Up! paper snips. They are second to none. Paper, ribbon – I use it on everything. That is all I have used to fussy cut around these flowers. And fussy cutting can be therapeutic in a weird kind of way – just follow the lines!
I stamped several images in Crumb Cake on Shimmery White Cardstock. Using the ink refills of Soft Sea Foam, So Saffron and Petal Pink, I coloured the images. Then I fussy cut and layered the flowers and leaves, adding sponging around all my images – a mix of Soft Sea Foam and Crumb Cake.
