Garden in Bloom – Stampin Up
Here’s another DIY card made with the Garden in Bloom stamp set from Stampin Up! You could use this as a mothers day card, a birthday card, an encouragement card, etc. The list goes on and on and it’s so easy! Read on my friend…
This card started with an 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of cardstock. The color is cucumber crush to be exact. (All products are from Stampin’ Up and listed below. Click on a picture to read more or to purchase)
To create a cardbase, you just cut the cardstock in half! That’s pretty easy, right? Then I wanted to add another layer of that gorgeous green but it needed a little something extra. TEXTURE!
To add some texture, I decided to run it through my Big Shot Machine using an embossing folder called “Large Polka Dots”.
How did I get this adorable flower? I stamped it of course! I stamped it on white cardstock using black ink. This stamp is so cool, because you don’t have to color in the stamp. It’s called a 2 step stamp. It gives you an outline and then a separate stamp to color it in.
Nifty, eh? Okay, so I really like coral and green together and that’s what I decided to go with on this flower. The leaves and stem are Cucumber Crush of course.
Okay, but you really want to know how that ribbon is staying put aren’t you? Well, it’s no secret that glue dots are awesome!
I tied a bow using some retired ribbon and then used a glue dot to hold it in place. Glue dots are kind of like if you were using a glue gun. Super strong!
The last part of this card is just to add another piece of white cardstock to the inside of the card.
Think you can re-create it? I’d love for you to give it a shot.
I hope you enjoyed checking out this card! If you would like to see all the class projects, just hop on over to the Stamping Factory today! There’s lots more to see!
