This past week we held our downline meeting which meant that I had to make a card to swap. That's the best part of getting together with other stampers--sharing ideas! We decided to focus on the Sheltering Tree stamp set so I made this card for everybody.
The DSP is from the Stacked with Love DSP stack in the Occasions Mini Catalog. Even though Valentine's Day is over, you can still use this paper stack for other occasions. One side of the paper has hearts/Valentine's patterns on it and the other side is more generic.
The base of my card is Real Red card stock followed by a Whisper White layer. All of the stamping was done on that layer of Whisper White. I used the Oval Framelits to cut out a "window" from the piece of DSP so you could see the stamping on the layer below.
I stamped the sentiment on a strip of Whisper White card stock and cut one end using the Banner punch. I wanted to add a little pop to the card so I added some Real Red flowers with Rhinestone centers.
I wanted the inside of my card to coordinate with the card front, so I added a strip of DSP and some stamped flowers. Before I attached the DSP to the Whisper White card stock, I placed the DSP where I wanted it to go on the Whisper White card stock and drew a faint line across the top with a pencil. Then I moved the DSP and stamped my flowers using the pencil line as a guide. Once they were all stamped, I erased the line and adhered the DSP in place.
If you have any questions, just let me know. Thanks for stopping by!
