Floral Birthday

This card style was super fun to make.  This can be easily done assembly line style - by having multiple card fronts cut, and just stamping every card front with one color, then the next and again the next.  I'm showing you two color options - of three ink colors each - but really, you could quite easily swap out the colors, or add additional colors (I would stick to 5 as the maximum number of colors, to keep the project from becoming a bit too busy).

I started with my lightest colors - Blushing Bride, and Soft Sky.  I stamped my card fronts over some scratch paper, and I would ink my stamp, and then stamp off on the scratch paper before stamping on my card front.  This gave a softer, more muted pattern to the background.  I would stamp 4-5 flowers this way, then move on to my next color.

When I stamped my final colors, Calypso Coral, and Wisteria Wonder, I stamped just a few flowers on each card front with full strength ink (no stamping off before stamping on the card front).  This helped add just a bit more dimension.  I then stamped and heat embossed my sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!
