Hello friends! Today the Mama Elephant Design Team is showcasing the gorgeous new Pretty Peonies Stamp Set. I paired these beautiful images with a simple inlay style Lafayette Framed Tags frame and soft watercoloring with the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Nuvo Crystal Drops in Morning Dew completes the look. Using a MISTI to get precise stamping on multiple cards makes this design perfect for creating multiples to keep on hand or give as a gift.
I die cut the frames and inside panels for the inlay cards from Bristol Smooth Cardstock and then used the MISTI to stamp the flowers and greetings from the Pretty Peonies Stamp Set in the center panel of each card using Versamark Ink and heat embossing with white embossing powder. The flowers and background were colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a water brush pen.
To finish the cards, I applied adhesive to the fronts of side fold card bases and adhered the die cut frame and then the inside panel to each card base. Nuvo Crystal Drops in Morning Dew complete the cards.
