You Bring Me Joy!!

Hello, crafty friends and welcome back! Laurie here to share a summery card using stamps and dies from My Favorite Things! This includes a Christmas stamp and die set!

One of my all time fave MFT sets is the Rustic Wildflowers. I love this simple, floral layering set that I just may have to get the More Rustic Wildflowers set!! I started by stamping almost every image from this set, some more than once. I chose to use only 2 colours for my project. Pink for the flowers and a light teal for the leaves!

I played around with a design for a LONG time and finally settled on creating a partial frame with only a few of the stamped images. I thought a panel of kraft cardstock would look quite nice so after running it through with a diagonal stripe embossing folder, I adhered it to a top fold, landscape, A2 sized card base.

The sentiment comes from the holiday themed Filled With Joy Stamp Set along with its co-ordinating dies. By simply switching the colour scheme, this card is not Christmas-y at all! I had originally stamped the sentiment onto a banner but it really overtook the “joy” die cut. Instead, I trimmed around it with scissors and adhered it over top of the “O” for a little interest.

I decided to not add any sparkle. I know, shocking! Instead, I went with three black gems to tie into the sentiment and the centres of the flowers.

Thank you for stopping by today and hoping your week is wonderful!
