Card Tutorial: A Botanical Greeting!


Botanical prints, you know the vintage ones... I love them! When I saw the Fun Stampers Journey Day Fern ATS and Sweet Buds ATS stamps, I was excited at the creative possibilities they offered. In today's tutorial, I used these stamp sets to create a card. 

Let's start by looking at the supplies.
Supplies:
Day Fern ATS
Sweet Buds ATS 

Embroidered Greetings Stamp Set


Candy Apple True Color Fusion Ink

Lemon Grass True Color Fusion Ink
Summer Days True Color Fusion Ink
River Stone True Color Fusion Ink
Hazelnut Blend True Color Fusion Ink
Whip Cream Cardstock
Details Pro Shears
Crease Tool 
Easy Glide Permanent Adhesive Runner
Journey Foam Squares - Small

And now let me walk you through the steps. 


Stamp the Day Fern ATS and Sweet Buds ATS on Whip Cream cardstock using the following inks - Fern, leaves and stems with Lemon Grass, flowers with Summer Days and Candy Apple, and the snail with River Stone True Color Fusion Ink.


Use Details Pro Shears to cut out the stamped images. You could also diecut them with the matching dies.


Stamp 'Miss you' from the Embroidered Greetings Stamp Set on Whip Cream cardstock using Hazelnut Blend True Color Fusion Ink.
 

Trim cardstock to 8.5" x 5.5". Fold in half using the Crease Tool to make a 4.25" x 5.5" card.


Attach the botanical images to the card as shown using the Easy Glide Permanent Adhesive Runner.
 

Attach the sentiment to the card with Journey Foam Squares.

I hope you enjoyed today's tutorial and have fun with these dies.
