Today I’m taking a break from my holiday cardmaking to share this sweet little card I created to cheer up a friend. This card features the Love Garden Sentiments stamp set that is part of the new Simon Says Stamp “To The Moon” release. I love this set! The variety of bold sentiments is amazing – “birthday wishes”, “hello”, “thanks”, and “sending love” – all are sentiments I use regularly. There are even smaller coordinating sentiments, some adorable butterflies, and, of course, a garden full of hearts. It’s truly an all-around set that can work for so many occasions (even Valentine’s Day, which will be here before you know it!).
To create this card, I started out by creating a mask for the heart shape that serves as the border for my garden scene. Once I had that in place, I stamped the heart garden and then created more masks for each of the little heart flowers and for the grass.
With all masks in place, I blended the clouds using the cloud portion of the Clearly Besotted Around About stencil. I removed the grass mask and ink blended the grassy area before removing the rest of the masks. I then colored the little heart flowers with Copic markers.
I stamped the sentiment and then used a Wonky Rectangle Stax die to cut out the panel.
For a little dimension and some shine, I used a white gel pen to add highlights to the heart flowers and glued on a few drip drops.
I mounted the panel onto the card front using foam tape.
Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to check out the Simon Says Stamp “To The Moon” release!
I hope you have a wonderfully creative day!
