I must admit that I thought this challenge was going to be easy but it wasn’t. Everything goes with black, right? I was having a hard time trying to figure out how the colors will blend as I didn’t think Cherry Cobler and Soft Sky goes well together (at least that’s my opinion). I made a couple of cards, but in the end I was not happy. I then went through all of my stamp sets (which isn’t a huge collection) and decided to come up with this design. Although this is quite simple, I am happy the way this card turned out.
I am not an expert yet on photography and I am really stumped on why the soft sky card stock is looking like Coastal Cabana and Pool Party.
I used Cherry Cobler Embossing Powder (Item No. 122949) to emboss the little heart (the heart is from Create a Cupcake stamp set – Item No. 121982). I wanted a winter theme for my card and kept the colors to a minimum. As you all may know by now, I am not a huge fan of busy colors and so I always try to keep my color scheme very simple.
For the sentiment and the Flowers, I used the following Stamp Sets:
Morning Meadow Stamp Set – Item No. 129678
For the Birds Stamp Set– Item No. 126407
White Embossing Powder – Item No. 109132
Basic Rhinestone (Used on the Butterfly and the Flowers) – Item No. 119246
The “snow” was stamped using the sprinkles from the Create A Cupcake Stamp Set (Item No. 121982).
I used Vellum Card Stock to stamp my small Butterfly and embossed it with the white embossing powder, then punched it out with the Bitty Butterfly Punch (Item No. 129406).
I hope you all like this card.
