Designing a card can be an adventure. Sometimes you just have no idea what is going to happen. And so it is with the card I am sharing today. Somewhere I saw a card that had put several of the rectangles from the Stained Glass Thinlits together and I thought it was very pretty. Here is what I ended up making.
Last week I made a card using the new colors Gorgeous Grape and Granny Apple Green. You can see that card here. These colors are great together!
This card begins with the Gorgeous Grape base measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4. Stamp randomly around the edges of the card front in Gorgeous Grape. The stamp is the detailed circle from the Painted Glass stamp set.
The Granny Apple Green layer is cut at 3 5/8 x 4 7/8. The Whisper White layer is 3 1/2 x 4 3/4. Stamp all over the white in Granny Apple Green. I used the same stamp as before.
Using the Stained Glass Thinlits, cut two of the detailed rectangles from Gorgeous Grape. I suggest that you use the Big Shot Die Brush to help get all of the little pieces out. The rectangles are placed side by side on a piece of Whisper White cut 2 1/8 square. The rectangles will stick out over the white. Add this to the card front with dimensionals.
The sprig of flowers is from the Hold on to Hope stamp set. Color directly onto the stamp with the Gorgeous Grape and Granny Apple Green markers. These are both in the Brights Stampin' Write Markers package. Stamp on white and cut out with the Cross of Hope Framelits. The rose is from the Painted Glass set. Stamp in Memento Black. I colored in the flower with my Aqua Painter and ink from the lids of the pads.
The sentiment is from the Hold on to Hope stamp set. I thought it all turned out to be very pretty.
For the inside of the card, I used the sentiment from Hold on to Hope. I also added another of the detailed circle stamp. I had an extra sprig so I added that, too.
I'm having a little trouble deciding if I really like this card or if it's just a little too busy. I think I really like it. What do you think?
