If you have been following my blog for a while, you know I love shabby chic and my favorite sentiment is "thinking of you". This card has both! Woo hoo! I paired the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set and the Buffalo Check Background Stamp and then used the Country Floral Embossing Folder. Are you wondering if this card will be one hot mess?
By adding the shabbiness to the different card elements, and using soft colors, it all goes together.
Card Base: 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Crumb Cake Cardstock, scored at 4 1/4".
First Layer: 4" x 5 1/4" Crumb Cake Cardstock, placed inside the Country Floral Embossing Folder and put through a Die Cutting Machine.
Second Layer: 1 1/4" x 5 1/4" Whisper White Cardstock. Use Petal Pink Ink on the Buffalo Check Background Stamp.
Third Layer: Scrap of Soft Sea Foam Cardstock on a scalloped Layering Circle Die and put through a Die Cutting Machine.
Fourth Layer: Scrap of Whisper White Cardstock on a Layering Circle Die and put through a Die Cutting Machine. Stamp the sentiment in Black Memento Ink.
Fifth Layer: Stamp two magnolia images with Black Memento Ink on a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock. Cut out with the Magnolia Memory Die put through a Die Cutting Machine. Color with Stampin' Blends.
The edges of the Second through the Fifth Layers were sponged with Crumb Cake Ink to shabby them up. The final touches are: Wink of Stella on the two magnolia flowers and a Petal Pink 5/8" Organdy Striped Ribbon.
