This post started with one card, and all of a sudden it developed to three cards from one layout. I just changed things up ever so slightly each time and ended up with three fabulous cards quickly and simply. I actually CASE’d myself in the first instance too, as I had made a card with the same layout earlier in the year, just using a different stamp set.
Sometimes we don’t need to go crazy and ‘redesign the wheel’ as they say, when something works just go with it! I have used the upcoming Hand Penned stamp set for these three cards. I love this set, in fact I don’t think that it has left my desk since it arrived last week… I must move on to something else soon.
This was card number one. I simply took a piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock measuring 14.5cm x 21cm and scored it in half at 10.5cm. I used the dotty mask from the Basic Pattern Masks to stencil a random pattern in Fresh Freesia (well, it had to be purple didn’t it!!). I didn’t go all the way to the left hand edge, rather leaving it fading out to the white.
The Designer Series Paper is cut to 14.5cm x 4cmand is stuck straight onto the white card on the right hand side. The main floral image is from the Hand Penned stamp set and is stamped in Memento black ink, before being infilled with Fresh Freesia, Balmy Blue, Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green.
I layed some Fresh Freesia ribbon under where my flowers would go, holding it in place with a little bit of SEAL+ tape. The flowers are then stuck flat on top of the ribbon, though you could use dimensionals if you wanted to. I added a bit of bling by using the Silver Epoxy Essentials, the circles fit perfectly over the dots of the mask!
The sentiment is from the Many Messages stamp and die bundle. All three sentiments on these cards are from the same set, and I already had them stamped and cut. I do love this idea as it makes my cardmaking so quick and easy, and I always have sentiments on hand ready to go.
I made this next card just by switching the design to a landscape design, omitting the ribbon and putting the sentiment in a different place. It really is as simple as that – everything else is the same and yet the card looks so different!
The third of my ‘three cards from one layout’ is another horizontal card, but this time I put the paper over on the left hand side, cut it a little wider to around 6cm and put the flowers in an arc, as they were too long to lay down in a straight line without cutting too much prettyness away!
I went back to the ribbon underneath the flowers and added the sentiment over the join of the flowers to try and hide it a little. I had so much fun making these three cards, it was as if once I had got started I just couldn’t stop!
