This card uses two of my most favorite stamps in the Holiday Catalog. The Buffalo Check background stamp (page 38) & the Falling for You bundle (page 45). I also love the Stitched Labels Framelits (page 220 in the Annual Catalog).
I’ve been seeing so many cards where they added a simple line to the Buffalo Check, so it was time for me to get on the band wagon. It was so easy. First stamp the Buffalo Check in Old Olive on your Stamparatus. I needed to stamp mine a couple times to get complete coverage. Would not have been able to do that without the Stamparatus. I am finding myself using the Stamparatus a lot. It would be a great Christmas Gift, if you can wait that long……After you stamp the check, then take a ruler and grid paper to draw your lines. I used my Dark Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blend Marker.
One other thing I always have a bigger piece of cardstock (I’ve been using a quarter sheet, 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″) than I need. That way if I’m a little crooked (which is typical of me), I can trim it easily.
Once you have the background down, adhere to the Blackberry Bliss piece and then to your Old Olive card base. All the measurement will be at the end.
Now the fun part. Die cut some of the leaves from the Detailed Leaves Thinlits. I used Cajun Craze, Blackberry Bliss & Old Olive. I embossed a couple of the leaves with the Swirls & Curls Embossing Folder. I sponged some Gold Shimmer Paint to the tips of the leaves. They were all put together with Glue Dots. I stamped the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss on the Stitched label and used Dimensionals to adhere to the card. I added a couple more Glue Dots to add the leaves. I just tucked them under the Label. Finished the card off with a Braided Linen Thread bow and Gold Faceted Gems.
5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ Old Olive
4 1/4″ 5 1/2″ Whisper White (remember you will be cutting this down to 3 3/4″ x 5″ after you stamp the check)
