Happy Wednesday! Today I’m sharing a simple monochrome card made with the Stampin’ Up! Wild Roses cling stamp set in Fresh Freesia. I made a thank you card with this stamp last week, kind of in reverse and you can see it here. Today’s card is kind of the reverse because I used versamark ink with white embossing powder to create a card with lots of shine. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I used my stamparatus to stamp the Stampin’ Up! Wild Roses background stamp in Versamark ink on a Fresh Freesia Panel. I used the magnets to hold the card stock down and inked up the stamp and stamped it a couple of times to get good coverage, pressing all around the stamp each time. I covered the panel with white embossing powder and shook off the excess. I heated the embossing powder with my heat tool, being careful to make sure it was all shiny. I trimmed the panel down to 3-3/4″ x 5″ and adhered it to a Fresh Freesia mat. I popped the panel on the front of a Fresh Freesia card base with dimensionals.
I wrapped the panel with a length of Fresh Freesia ribbon, securing it in the back. I stamped the sentiment from the Many Happenings stamp set in Fresh Freesia ink on a basic white panel and cut it out with the Messages die. I adhered it to the card front with dimensionals over the ribbon.
I cut the small detailed butterfly from the Brilliant Wings dies from Fresh Freesia shimmer vellum and adhered it to the card front next to the label with glue dots in the butterfly body, allowing the wings to flutter freely. I finished the butterfly with a rhinestone and added two more to finish the card front.
For the inside of the card, I used the Stampin’ Up! Wild Roses stamp again on a strip of Fresh Freesia card stock and embossed it with white embossing powder. I adhered it to the bottom of a Basic White panel. I adhered a panel of adhesive strip to the back of another panel of Fresh Freesia Vellum and cut out another small detailed butterfly from the Brilliant Wings dies. I peeled of the adhesive backing and adhered it to the top of the panel, pressing it with my bone folder to make sure it was secure. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
The Stampin’ Up! Wild Roses background stamp makes a pretty design for the background of a card and it’s pretty versatile as you can see from the two simple simple cards that I have made with it. I’m not sure which I like better – do you have a preference?
