All crafters seem to accumulate a stash of goodies and embellishments. My stash has been growing a lot lately so I have been making an effort to use what I have! My main reason for "craft hoarding" is that some of these things are just too pretty to use. But, I realize that if I don't use them, no one will ever see them and that does nobody any good. So let's share the love and bust out the stash!
I have had these rub-ons from Prima forever. I love, love, LOVE the florals and have been waiting for just the right project to use them on.
I created this card with a specific purpose in mind so it is a little more personalized that my usual cards. It was made for a bridal shower so the overall theme is love.
I started by stamping the woodgrain background and then adding color using my Distress Inks. Then, I mounted it on a kraft cardstock base, and added just a strip of burlap from Canvas Corp at the top.
The front panel is plain white cardstock that I applied the floral rub-ons to. Then, I added some glittery black chipboard letters, and a black strip of paper that I heat embossed the sentiment on. I also added a few hearts from that same black cardstock.
The little scalloped border is a die from Lawn Fawn. I love this die and have used it many times. To finish the card, I popped it up on some fun foam for dimension, and added a little more sparkle by applying some Wink of Stella to the hearts.
I also lined the inside with a white cardstock lining in order to more easily write a note inside of. I also added another little rub-on flower inside.
