Country Bouquet

 Hello friends! It has been so busy yet fun in my world. I am on my third week of watching my sweet little granddaughter three days a week. It's taken a while for me to figure out a schedule with my card business and making sure she is priority one on her days. I think she is loving having her Nana to play with. She gets really torn at the end of the day.  She is so happy that Mom is home from work but she cries when I leave because she doesn't want me to go. What a sweetie!

So today's card was designed for a class for my friend's daughter and her friends. We got together in December to do a painting craft and the gals decided that we needed to do another craft night. My friend's daughter suggested doing a card night so of course I jumped at the opportunity. We will be doing a Valentine's card and a birthday card. Maybe we'll do another card night another time.

I started with a card base of Sahara Sand. I cut down the front so it was only a half panel. I added a strip of DSP from the Country Gingham DSP pack to the front panel.

On a square of Basic White cardstock I stamped the two-step heart image stamp from the Country Bouquet stamp set. I stamped the image with the leaves first using Mint Macaron ink. I then stamped the flower/heart image using Sweet Sorbet ink. The stamp is designed to line up perfectly and since it is photopolymer it is easy to match it up. I matted this onto a piece of Sweet Sorbet cardstock and then matted this onto a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock. I added this to the card front panel.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment using Sweet Sorbet ink. I cut a banner cut into both edges of my sentiment piece and then added it to the card front using dimensionals.

To complete my card, I added a bow that I tied using a double layer of Linen Thread. I added it to the top of the heart using a mini glue dot. I also added a piece of Basic White cardstock to the inside of the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed this card. I also hope the gals enjoy it when we have our class. I didn't want to make the card too detailed as some of them are first time stampers.

Stay well and keep creating!
