Each Sunday, I create a card using one of my card sketches. This week's sketch is number SS043. Sketches can help to get your creativity fired up. They are open to interpretation, no real right or wrong way.
You can create a card exactly using the sketch layout or change it up a bit. You can also turn the sketch so if it is a vertical sketch you might want to turn it to be horizontal. Let your imagination run wild!
Today's card features Inspiring Iris which is a two-step stamp set. Two-step stamps are one of my favorites and have been since I started over 20 years ago. They create quick and easy designs that look like you fussed. Paired with the Stitched Nested Labels give it a unique look.
Simple Stamping Steps & Measurements
- Fold a piece the Whisper White cardstock in half to create the card base.
(top fold 4 1/4" x 11” – side fold 5 ½” x 8 ½”)
- Glue the Designer Paper to the card front.
- Using the 2 3/8" x 4 1/4" tall Stitched Nested Label cut out a piece of Pear Pizzazz cardstock and glue to the center of the cardfront.
- Then cut out one using Whisper White Cardstock & the 2" x 3 7/8" one.
- Stamp the outline iris in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
- Stamp the solid flower in Terracotta Tile and the leaves in Pear Pizzazz ink and adhere to the Pear Pizzazz cardstock with dimensionals.
