Always Believe ~ Altenew

Simple stamping and an encouraging messages makes for a wonderful card.

Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Saundra and I am a card maker. I love to create and hope you find a bit of inspiration while you are here.

Well friends, it has been a while since I have posted anything. Life got a little crazy and I was kind of lost for a little while. I hope to be more consistent in posting from now on.

For today's card I kept things simple. I think this card would be an easy one to mass produce and by changing the greeting and color scheme you would have a nice set of cards.
 Let's have a closer look!

This is almost a one layer card, except I used a card stock panel and added it to card base.

For this card I started by stamping the base flower from Altenew's Sophisticated Wreath stamps. I chose the lightest shade of purple for the first layer. I created a few masks so that I could stamp across the card panel. To do this quickly I chose several sheets of Post Its and stamped my image once. I fussy-cut the image once by keeping all the layers of Post its together. The result was that I had several masks from one stamping.

I continued stamping my base layer across the top and bottom of the card panel. Using my masks I stamped the second layer with the darker ink.

Instead of using the last layer for the flower centers I used a Versmarker to add sticky ink and gold embossing powder.  I heat set it and moved on to the sentiment.

I chose to do some selective stamping for my sentiment. I heat embossed the Wonderful with gold embossing powder and stamped the rest of the sentiment in Deep Iris Ink.

Once all of my stamping and heat embossing was complete, I added my card panel to my card base.

Super simple but elegant!

For this card I used the following supplies:
