Hi! My name is Alishia and I am a KraftaholicMommy!
It never ceases to amaze me how beautiful a sunrise can be. I have been working like crazy in the craft room on making a card for my grandmother. Once a month, I make a point to send her a little card to make her smile. So, I thought I would share my creation today.
Base: Black 5 1/2” by 8 1/2” scored at 4 1/4”
First layer (2): Hot Pink 5 3/8” by 4 1/8”
Second layer (2): Darker Pink 5 1/4” by 4”
Third layer (2): White 5 1/8” by 3 7/8”
Stampin’ Up Melon Mambo
My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink Extreme Black
Fiskars Paper Trimmer
Tim Holtz Stamping Tool
Stampin’ Up Simply Scored Scoring Tool
Elmers Tape Runner
Park Lane 1/4” foam squares
Park Lane Rhinestones
Envelope size A2
Cut all of your paper. I like cutting a couple of extra papers for my stamped images. If I mess up, or if I don’t like the way it comes together. I tend to test things out, I like to stamp a couple of different designs and choose from there, having the extra pieces helps with that.
Now comes the fun part, using my Tim Holtz Stamping Tool. I chose a few different flowers and using the Melon Mambo ink, I tried out a few different designs. I also tried other inks, however, I couldn’t quite land on anything. That is, until, I worked up the design here. I added my sentiment at the bottom right in My Favorite Things Extreme Black Hybrid ink.
At this point, using Elmer’s Tape Runner I adhered my pink paper (5 1/4” by 4”) to my hot pink piece(5 3/8” by 4 1/8”). Then, with one set of the layered pinks, I adhered my white layer(5 1/8” by 3 7/8”) on top. I layered that on the inside of my card and layered my other set of layered pinks on the front of my card.
Turning my attention back to my stamped piece, I used my Park Lane Rhinestones to decorate my flowers. I also put one of my tiny rhinestones on each of the dots for the “I’s” in my sentiment. I then added my foam squares on the back of my stamped piece and layered that on the front of my card.
At this point I was finally finished with this card. I really kind of love the way that this card turned out. I wrote my message inside to my grandmother, addressed the envelope and I am all set to put the card in the mail.
