Card #2 Using January Stamp of the Month with Coordinating SVG Die Cuts


Happy Thursday crafty friends,
Hope your week is going well. I wanted to share the second card I created using this month’s Stamp of the Month set along with the second card base I created with the SVG-die cut file set for this stamp collection.

The finished card size is almost an A2 size it is 4.25 x 5.25. I started with a kraft cardstock base. I then used some pink cardstock for the inside. For the top mat, I used some retired dotty for you teal paper and then used some white cardstock to cut out the heart shapes, the lattice piece and the flowers. I then used my Cotton Candy Ink Pad to stamp the hearts and then used some of my lagoon ink pad to ink the flower petals. I layered the flower petals and then added a pearl accent to the centers. I used some white ribbon to make the bow and to wrap the lattice piece. I did also use just a touch of Whisper Ink to ink the edges of the pink mat.

Here’s a closer look at the flowers. To get the soft look, I cut them in white cardstock and then inked the layers with my lagoon ink pad. I gently curled and staggered the layers to give them a more realistic look. I did use a bit of foam tape underneath so there would be a little lift to the flowers.

This shot shows you the card slightly open so that you see the base of the card has the heart outline pre cut. Making placement of your white die cut and stamped heart pieces a snap.
