Floral hand stamped C6 card - Day 262 of my 366 day challenge

Floral hand stamped C6 card - 
Day 262 of my 366 day challenge

Hi Craft addicts!

Have been trying my hand at stamping and colouring and have made this C6 card for day 262 of my 366 day challenge.

Floral hand stamped C6 card

To make the topper:-
  • To make the main focal point, I first of all cut out an oval shape 100x78mm approximately in white stamping card and cut out the centre of it so it was a frame.
  • i then coloured it using "Green G01" and "Yellow Y02" making the bottom half of it darker than the top.
  • I then added the leaf images using Card-io's Majestix "Autumn Wreath" stamps - double stamping them to add different shades to the image (I used "Onyx Black" Versafine ink as it is much better to use for smaller/more detailed images.
  • I repeated this on the inside of the frame. 
To make the card:-

  • Using a wavy border strip I had cut out using black card, I added it to the top and bottom of the card.
  • I then added a smaller oval in black to the centre of the card and added the topper to the middle of it using foam pads.
  • I then cut out a flower shape using the "Open petals" die from Sue Wilson Creative Expressions in pink card and stuck it to the middle of the frame.
  • I used "Apple Green" Nuvo Crystal drops in the middle of the flower and "Morning Dew" drops to the wavy border strips.
I was going to use it vertically but it looks just as good horizontally) and so have shown it as such.
