Botanical Gazette is simply beautiful!

7 Mar

Once a month, on a Friday evening, I have a class called K.I.S.S. — Keep It Simple Stamping. Others create cards called CAS — Clean and Simple. The whole idea is easy-to-make, easy-to-copy-at-home cards. Simple. But, no less special nor less appreciated because of their simplicity.

One of the cards I made for my March K.I.S.S. class was inspired by the beauty of the Botanical Gazette Designer Series Papers, currently available in the Occasions Mini Catalog. This paper is so beautiful I wanted it to be the focus of the card. I hope you like it!

How to create this card:

Layer 1: Naturals Ivory (#102316, $7.50), cut to 4-1/2″ x 11,” scored and folded at 5-1/2.” Fold is at top of card.

Layer 2: Botanical Gazette Designer Series Paper (#121783, $9.95). Cut two coordinating prints to 4″ x 2-3/4.” Adhere with Snail (#104332, $6.95), overlapping the two pieces at center of card.

Layer 3: Overlay a length of Victoria 5/8″ Crochet Trim (#118481, $6.95); adhere by running a strip of Snail across the center of the card. Top off with the “simple” sentiment from the Define Your Life stamp set (#114950, $47.95), stamped in Chocolate Chip Classic Ink on Naturals Ivory and punched with the Wide Oval Punch (#119859, $16.95).

Inside: I simply stamped “thinking of you” from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set (#115370, $36.95) with Chocolate Chip Classic Ink.

Until we meet again…HAPPY STAMPIN’!
