Good morning everyone....
Today's card shows what you can achieve using one main stamp and one Promarker
The card is certainly not flashy/over the top/ etc but sometimes you may need a quick 'congratulatory' card to send to someone and this design is ideal for the male population
I've mentioned previously how I intend to use each and everyone of my die and stamp collection, embossing folders.... well, to cut a long story short, all the gear in my craft room! So, this Clarity stamp just happened to appear on my work table and I had an idea to use it for today's card but also to keep the card minimalish....
It's a 6" square card, top folding, and the stamp is a Clarity stamp nos 68 and named 'floral swirl'. This is the first time I've used it and I actually bought it in 2012!... shocking I know
I used Adirondack 'denim' to stamp around the card then a Promarker in 'berry red' to add the dots. There is a little white space on the leaves so I added the red to those too
The sentiment is one by Creative Expressions and you'll see on the last picture below the ones I've used frequently. I used a Versafine ink pad in 'satin red' to stamp the sentiment then ran the denim ink pad on the edges
Foam pads were added to the back just to give it a little height
As this is my first week of blogging this year I decided not to do a 'Festive Friday', although the odd one may make an appearance, the reason being that I'm going to make a batch of the same card design except for the ones going to our nearest and dearest. I will carry on with the give-away
So for this week's freebie I have a distress ink pad in 'weathered wood'. The same condition still applies, if you'd like your name added to the draw then please leave me a comment on today's post by 6pm Saturday and I will announce the winner on Sunday's blog
