At last a card to share


I was up at 7am today and decided it was about time I got a card made....not a class card just a card for my own pleasure.

I absoloutely love the "Mr and Mrs" stamp set so that was the set my hand reached for today. The detail on the flowers is so crisp and clear so I have just randomly stamped on Whisper White in Pale Plum and Perfect Plum. I came across this folded flower over on Splitcoast Stampers. There are lots of samples using designer series papers which are beautiful but I wanted a plain and simple purple flower to go with my stamped background so I used whisper white cardstock ( this is slightly thinner than the coloured sort so easier for the folding) I scalloped one edge with the scallop edge punch, then used my brayer and lightly inked the strip in Pale Plum. I then sponged the edges and the creases in Perfect Plum.
This whole card took me less than 10 minutes to make and I am pleased with it's simplicity.
Hope you like it too
