Today the Mama Elephant Design Team is showcasing the brand new Sentimental Borders Stamp Set. I combined this awesome new basic with the gorgeous banner and florals stamps from the ME Bloomsies Stamp Set and coordinating ME Bloomsies Creative Cuts dies. Simple rectangles die cut using the ME Index Card Creative Cuts and layered add a lovely subtle dimensional background to my card.
I die cut the stitched rectangle from Neenah Smooth White Cardstock using the ME Index Card Creative Cuts die. I masked off the edges of the die (from the stitched detail to the edge) using Post It Tape and then I used one of the Sentimental Borders stamps to create the text background by repeatedly stamping the design using Golden Glitz Delicata Pigment Ink.
I die cut the scallop rectangle from vellum using the ME Index Card Creative Cuts die and layered it over the text background, carefully applying liquid adhesive in the four corners (and behind where the florals and banner will be attached).
I stamped the beautiful florals from the ME Bloomsies Stamp Set using Hero Arts Soft Vanilla Ink for the solid image and HA Butter Bar Ink for the accent stamp. This results in lovely dimensional looking flower blooms. I stamped the greenery with HA Soft Olive Ink and the open leaves with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, coloring in the leaves with Copic Markers (the individual marker colors I used are linked below in the supplies).
I stamped the banner and greeting on vellum using Versamark Ink and heat embossed the image and greeting with gold embossing powder to really make it pop. I love the look of gold embossed images on vellum. Especially on an elegant card like this one, making it the perfect card for weddings, anniversaries, etc.
I attached the banner and florals as shown, finishing by adding a bit of Wink of Stella Glitter pen to the flower blooms and attaching some pearl gems to complete the card.
The finished size of this card is 4 x 5.5". The ME Index Card Creative Cuts dies fit A1 sized cards (commonly known as RSVP sized cards). The ME Index Card Creative Cuts is a slightly smaller version of the very popular ME Femme Frames Creative Cuts dies. I love having both size options!
