Today the Mama Elephant Design Team is showcasing the Organic Blooms Stamp Set. I've created a simple thank you, almost single layer card with this stamp set but this design works for almost any type of occasion. There are loads of great greetings in the stamp set and this design would make a great card set gift!
I trimmed a piece of watercolor cardstock to 5.5" x 4.25" and stamped the large floral image from the Organic Blooms Stamp Set using Versamark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I watercolored the flowers with Dried Marigold and Rusty Hinge Distress Inks, the leaves with Bundled Sage and Forest Moss Distress Inks and the smaller images with Mustard Seed and Fossilized Amber Distress Inks. When the flowers were dry I applied watered down Evergreen Bough Distress Ink around the image to really make the flowers "pop"!
I stamped a greeting from the Organic Blooms Stamp Set on a scrap of watercolor cardstock using the Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink, trimmed around the greeting, leaving a thin white border and adhered the strip to the watercolored panel. I attached the background panel to a side fold card base and finished the design with a scattering of mini pearls.
