Hi all, it's Maureen here today sharing a simple technique to spice up your clean and simple cards.
Stamping on Kaft cardstock gives such a timeless, classic look. When combined with Shadow Stamping, the result is just stunning.
To make my card, I started with a piece of Kraft cardstock that was trimmed to 4 x 5 1/4. I stamped the flowers and leaf images from SOA Eva's Favorite Flowers first in white pigment ink and then with colored ink, slightly offsetting them. Next I used the large scallop frame from the SOA Journal Card die and die cut the center of my stamped piece. I sponged the edges so that it really popped once it was inset. The sentiment from SOA All About You was heat embossed, then I added a “you” from the SOA Two Yous die with liquid glue. From here you just add all of the pieces to a white card base and you are done!
I love a card that comes together quickly and easily. You could make a bunch of these in no time at all!
I hope you'll give this technique a try!
