Today’s simple rubber stamped flower card is quick and easy, perfect for my Keep It Simple Sunday series!
Have you taken a peek at any of my other Keep It Simple Sunday designs? They’re ones you can put together fast with wonderful results. Less tools, less supplies and great crafting ideas. I give you all the measurements and the how-to steps to make it at home yourself.
See another one, also with a rubber stamped flower here.
Here’s today’s design.
Pretty. Colourful. Quick.
This flower from the Lovely You stamps can steal the show all on its own. I think what I like about it the best is the separation of the colour from the white in the design itself. So it’s a solid image – sorta!
But the real show stoppers are how many wonderful sentiments this stamp set has. 11 of them! And they are all great! Let me show it to you.
Simple Rubber Stamped Flower Card
Cuttin’ It Up!
- Thick Whisper White cardstock – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″, scrap at least 2″ x 4″
- Pretty Peacock cardstock – 2 1/4″ x 4″
- Daisy Delight cardstock – 2 1/8″ x 3 7/8″, 2nd piece 2 3/4″ x 5 3/4″ for the envelope
- metallic edged ribbon – about 4″
Let’s Make It!
- Fold card base and crisp edge with bone folder.
- Run smaller piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock through die cutting and embossing machine with the Ornate Flowers 3D embossing folder.
- Glue smaller piece of Daffodil Delight to piece of Pretty Peacock and glue to left of front of card base.
- Stamp flower in So Saffron ink (or if you wish Daffodil Delight) onto scrap piece of Whisper White. Stamp greeting over top of flower with Pretty Peacock ink.
- Crop flower and greeting with the stitched label from Tasteful Labels.
- Fold ribbon in half and attach to a glue dot. TIP: add to the glue dot while it’s still on the roll. Pick up the ribbon and place behind the label so it extends out to the right.
- Add dimensionals to the back of the label and centre over Daffodil Delight panel and affix.
- Add one basic Rhinestone to the ribbon.
- Optional: Run the larger piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock through die cutting and embossing machine with the Ornate Flowers 3D embossing folder. Glue onto the back of the envelope flat. Open up the flap and cut around it so the flap is completely covered with the embossed cardstock.
How Could You Even Make This Card Simpler?
- have only one cardstock layer under the label
- don’t use a label shape, just use a rectangle smaller than the panel behind it (maybe 2″ x 3 3/4″)
- omit the dry embossing on the Daffodil Delight panel
- leave off the ribbon and/or the rhinestone
- leave the envelope plain
