Hello! I'm sneaking in one last share before April is over. I meant to post this card earlier this month and I accidentally missed scheduling it so you're getting it tonight instead!
The new Simon Says Stamp Forget Me Not dies and Big Mom die were two of my favorites from the most recent Mothers Fathers Florals Release and I think they look stunning as the focal point of this card! A strong background created with the Leaves Background and You Matter Background and Distress Inks sets the tone for the card. A vellum border with Scallop Stitches Borders helps the greeting and Forget Me Nots really stand out!
The background panel was trimmed to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". I inked up the Leaves Background with Shabby Shutters and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks, spritzed the stamp with water from a Mini Mister and stamped the background. The watered down images gives a gorgeous watercolored look to the image. Once dry (I used a heat tool to speed up the process) the You Matter Background was stamped over the leaves with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink. I dried the text and then applied Shabby Shutters Distress Ink over the background with an Ink Blending Tool. The background was spritzed with water from a Distress Sprayer and then blotted dry with a paper towel.
A vellum strip was die cut on both long sides with the largest Scallop Stitches Border. I stamped a smaller greeting phrase along the bottom edge of the strip with greetings from the Thankful Heart Stamp Set using Versamark Ink and heat embossed the phrase the white embossing powder.
The panel was secured to a side fold card base and then the design was finished with Nuvo Crystal Drops in Morning Dew.
