You Make Me Smile with Kristie and WINNERS!

Share This!

Hi everyone!  Kristie here today sharing a card using new goodies from the Zen Garden release.

My card features the Love Grows stamp set and the Split Chevron Stencil.

youmalkemesmile I am not great at coloring, so I love that these cool flowers have the solid image to stamp to add color to the flowers.  That is exactly what I did for this card.  I stamped the outline image and then the solid image to “color” the flowers.  The leaves also have the solid image, but I decided to stamp just the outline image.

To create the black and white border on my card base, I used the Split Chevron stencil and sponged using Midnight ink.

I added a strip of silver glitter card stock to add some sparkle.  The sentiment was white heat embossed onto a strip of black card stock.  I finished off my card with adding some clear drops to the centers of the flowers.

I hope you enjoyed my card today.  Thank you for stopping by!
