Shaded Summer Step-by-Step

Love You Friend Card (3-1/2″ x 5″) (9 x 12.7 cm)
CASUAL
Create striking yet easy-to-craft cards with our Shaded Summer Stamp Set and coordinating Summer Shadows Dies (found in our Sale-A-Bration brochure!). We adhered contrasting strips of cardstock one at a time, using Stampin’ SEAL on each strip to create a stunning focal point. (Our color combo? We used Just Jade, Petal Pink, and Soft Succulent Cardstock, but choose whichever combination you love best!) Then, simply stamp the floral image and sentiment and layer them over a piece of Vellum Cardstock to create dimensional interest. Artfully arrange a few Elegant Faceted Gems on your card for a glamourous finish . . . and there you have it! Easy elegance in just minutes.

Here’s a fun technique to add to your crafting repertoire! Did you know that you can customize the color of your baker’s twine by soaking it in a little rubbing alcohol with your choice of Classic Stampin’ Ink Refill? Or you can simply color the twine using a Stampin’ Blend. Once that’s done, add depth and sophistication to your avid card by applying a little Flirty Flamingo ink to the floral image with a Sponge Dauber. We also spiced up the Vellum Cardstock piece by heat setting the Just Jade images using a Heat Tool.

For our most posh and detailed project, we added a few delightfully dimensional die-cuts to send this card right over the top. Stamp the floral sprigs in VersaMark ink and White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, then heat set to achieve those final, stunning touches. Gorgeous!
