Designer Series – Pretty Lovely

February 7, 2018

Hello and good morning everyone! I’m back with a *slightly* early Mother’s Day card using the gorgeous floral stamp Pretty Lovely from the latest Mama Elephant‘s January release.

First, I used some masking tape and masked off some geometric shapes on my card stock. I wanted to go for a Spring colour theme so I used a combination of pink, orange, dark yellow, yellow and red.

Next, I used the curly bracket die cut from Framed Tags – Chelsea to die cut a window in the middle. This is where I’m going to slip my flower in later.

I stamped my flower in black on some white cardstock and left it as is. Since the card panel is busy with colours and shapes, I wanted to leave the flower simple in black and white. I slipped the flower in the window and adhered a sentiment from Occasional Labels.

And there you go! Here’s my finished card using the January release stamp sets. I love the splash of colour around a simple black and white focal point!

Here’s a close up of the card. The embossed stitching from the Framed Tags – Chelsea die cut adds a nice flair to the card!

    The geometric background is so cool and I love the way you have cut an oval in the middle and the flower is just black and white which makes it ‘pop’.

    Lovely card and the
    little splashes of
    color are neat looking.
