Here it is Easter and Sale-A-Bration is a memory. For those of you who were able to get lots of treasures (stamps), I am sure they are fond memories.
Today’s card design is taken from SIP Challenge #143
An extra easy card for you to make as it uses only one color of cardstock–Whisper White. Oh, I almost forgot the tiny square of lilac that I used from a scrap that I found somewhere in my stash of scraps.
I embossed a piece of Whisper White using the Basket Weaver TIEF. Then I cut to the size, (4 x 3), I need to layer on the front of my card base. I then used the small piece of lilac to layer over that. I used circle layering thinlit dies to cut the circle the art piece is popped on.
I stamped the art piece using the Lots of Lavender stamp set, which was FREE during Sale-A-Bration. I do not believe it will return in the new annual catalog that comes out June 1. I colored the bunches of lavender using Stampin Up Watercolor Lilac and Old Olive pencils and an aqua painter.
The inside sentiment is from the Petal Palette stamp set. This stamp set is available until June 1. I added a bunch of lavender below the sentiment and once again colored it with Stampin Up Watercolor pencils.
I wrapped a piece of white ribbon across the card to hide the division of the two papers. I wrapped several strands of Linen Thread over the white ribbon. I popped the circle with the art piece over the ribbon and thread. I made a bow of the linen thread and glued it with a glue dot to the basket.
The two butterflies were stamped using the Blooming Basket stamp set. These were fussy cut and a glue dot was used to adhere them to the art piece.
See short and simple that is my card for the day. Hope you enjoy!
