Hello! Today I’m sharing a pair of cards that I made with two of my favorite things – spring colors and a beautiful floral stencil. Have you seen the new Bold Daisy Stencil yet? I’ve used it with two, beautiful trios of ink colors, to create bold and colorful backgrounds for each of my springtime designs. I hope that you love this tried-and-true technique.
To create my cards, I started by trimming two pieces of white layering paper slightly smaller than my card fronts. Then, I cut each panel, into three, equal width strips. I used these two color palettes to ink each of the strips with a section of the Bold Daisy Stencil.
For my first card, I embellished the stenciled background with a vellum circle, a seam binding bow, and an embossed, celebrate sentiment from the Celebrate Tag Stamp & Cut by Lia set. I love having a few celebration cards on hand as they are perfect for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings and congratulation wishes. I added an embossed swan from Origami Animals that I die-cut with Animals Frame Cuts.
For my second card, I created a few label sentiments using a stamp and die-cut from Kelly's Labels Stamp & Cut set. I stamped a small sentiment from Many Everyday Messages inside each tiny label. But perhaps my favorite stamp on this card, is the adorable bird from Kelly's Girl Talk Planner set.
I used a few colored pencils to quickly add a touch of color to the bird. Then, I added all of the elements to the card front with some vellum and another seam binding bow. For a finishing touch, I added a few sparkly gems to each card. Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you have a wonderful and crafty week!
