How about a “You’re the Best” greeting card to have in your stash for just the right occasion or person? I wanted to use my new washi tape, the Pick a Pattern Washi Tape, so I looked in the new Stampin’ Up! Catalog for inspiration. I found a card sort of like this one, and this is what turned out! For the card design, I used the stamp set Watercolor Words. I’ve loved that stamp set ever since it came out! Very easy to use in cardmaking and good sentiments as well!
The card base is Melon Mambo with a Whisper White layer, plus a layer of Basic Black behind the white. I applied two strips of the washi tape at the bottom of the card layer and then stamped Melon Mambo flowers from the Watercolor Words Stamp Set across the front of the card. I actually stamped the greeting right over the flowers, but didn’t think it stood out well enough. If I was trying this card again, I might try stamping the flower each time off on scrap paper before stamping on the cardstock to get a lighter image. In that way, the greeting might show up better as the focal point on the card. But as it was, I just stamped the greeting on a new Whisper White piece of cardstock and die cut it in a circle and layered on a scalloped circle. These dies are the Layering Circle Framelits Dies. Some are plain circles and some have the scallop edge.
And is a card without an extra little embellishment? Just had to add some Glitter Enamel Dots!
