Hi everyone, today I’m sharing a card I’ve really enjoyed making. This card is made using my all-time favourite stamp set!
I love, love, love this stamp set! maybe its because I live by the sea, it’s lovely to colour and because there are so many different images it’s easy to create lovely scenes.
I coloured these images using my Arteza TwiMarkers, available here.
This Pop-Up style is quite springy and doesn’t really stand well on its own and has frustrated me when making them in the past, I this time I’ve added some greyboard to the base making it much stronger and allowing it to be displayed better.
It all folds flat and fits into a handmade envelope.
The paper I used for the nautical card is from the Fresh Feelings pad from The Works here.
The stamp set I used to stamp my sentiment on the back is from the Daisy, Ditsy & Dotty set available from Craft Stash here.
I also wanted to show this style card in a more feminine way so I decided to make this pretty one using the Paper Addicts ‘Forever & Always’ pack.
I fussy cut the flowers from one of the sheets and created a large cluster on the front.
I think this version is beautiful!
This lovely sentiment is from the Card Making Magic ‘Verses” stamp set available here.
The Forever & Always pad is by Paper Addicts and available here.
The butterfly die is from the Bright Rosa ‘Butterfly Band’ set here.
