I often make 'open' cards without any sentiment, especially feminine ones as I can add the appropriate wording when I need to send it.
This is one of those cards which I'm entering into two challenges:
FASHIONABLE STAMPING CHALLENGES - Build it Up
CRAFT ROOM - Ribbons and Lace
I started by stamping over the card blank using Crafty Individuals' CI-017 script stamp and Distress Ink in Seedless Preserve, varying the position and orientation of the stamp. Next I used CI-350 Lace stamp with the same DI and stamped the wide panel of lace down the side. I added the cream lace onto the stamped edge and the ribbon next to that.
I die cut the various layers of the flowers using the Cricut Flower Shoppe cartridge and a selection of light and dark coloured card. These were then pieced together with Glossy Accents and finished with a pearl. The swirls were cut from the Cindy Loo cartridge. The leaf was stamped using a free stamp from Craft Stamper Magazine and heat embossed with Frantage Aged Scarlet heat embossing enamel.
