Hello and welcome to today’s card, featuring the Lilypad Lake Bundle and Rooted in Nature stamp set! When I first started to create this card, I got out my Tranquil Textures DSP, and looked at my scraps to see if there is anything that would go together or something that I could create a card with, because who doesn’t have those pesky odds and ends of paper that get ignored?? So, I started with a piece of DSP in Fresh Fig and a piece in Crumb Cake and just went from there.
The card base is Fresh Fig cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, scored at 4 ¼”, and I used the Hardwood background stamp in Fresh Fig ink:
I had this 3” x 6” strip of DSP from the Wood Textures 6” x 6” DSP and trimmed it down to 3” x 5 ½”:
I used these two scraps from Tranquil Textures DSP:
The sentiment is from Rooted in Nature stamp set, stamped in Versamark and heat embossed in Copper Embossing Powder on a 1 ¼” x 3 ½” piece of Very Vanilla cardstock. Both pieces are then punched with the Banner Triple Punch:
The heron is stamped on Very Vanilla cardstock in Early Espresso ink, colored in with the Light and Dark Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blend Markers, and cut out with the coordinating die:
A piece of Copper Trim is tied in a bow around the Wood Textures DSP and then adhered to the card base:
The 3” x 3” piece of Tranquil Textures DSP is adhered with dimensionals, the sentiment banner piece is adhered with Snail, and then the heron is adhered along the edge with Glue Dots:
The inside sentiment is on Very Vanilla cardstock, stamped in Versamark ink, and heat embossed in Copper Embossing Powder. I stamped and colored the inside heron the same as the front and then cut out two pieces of the grass from the Lakeside Framelits Dies in Crumb Cake and Early Espresso cardstocks:
I love how this card turned out and Fresh Fig, Early Espresso, and Crumb Cake are not colors I would have ever thought to have used making a card! I guess getting out those scraps and seeing what you can create can pay off!!
