I've been busy with classes this week, so I haven't had much time for my own creating. However, I have another card to show you, using the Country Home stamp set. I coloured two flower bowls when I created this card a few weeks ago, so today I'm showing you how I used the second bowl of flowers.
I coloured the main set of flowers in Rich Razzleberry with Mint Macaron and Smoky Slate for the artichoke, so I continued with these colours in my card. The card base is Mint Macaron and I stamped the tile image on the end in Mint Macaron ink on a separate piece of cardstock (it took a few tries to get them all lined up!) and added it to the end of the card. Some of the lovely Braided Linen Trim finishes off the edge. The birthday greeting is stamped in Rich Razzleberry ink on the Crumb Cake panel and I've added the striped Rich Razzleberry designer paper to the edges, with some of the Chicken Wire Elements. The bowl of flowers is popped up on a Very Vanilla stitched circle at the end of the greeting panel and I added the Braided Linen Trim bow when it was in place. I think all the elements give it a country feel.
For the inside, I have some narrow strips of the Rich Razzleberry designer paper at each side of the writing panel to continue the theme from the front. I punched out a vase shape with the Vases Builder Punch and coloured it with the Cajun Craze Stampin' Blends for my terracotta vase. When it was in place, I added a mask and stamped the stem of flowers and carefully coloured them with the fine tip end of the (retired) dark Pink Piourette Stampin'Blends marker. The greeting comes from the coordinating Varied Vases stamp set.
