You know…inspiration is just everywhere! I wanted to do a card to post on my blog today but have been in a creative funk lately. I was paging through Stamp It! cards and found the perfect inspiration by Julia Stainton.
If you have that edition (on display until 9/19/11) it is on pa 138. As soon as I saw it, I knew it would be perfect as a SUO (Stampin’ Up! Only) card. I did make some changes but kept the overall color and layout the same. The base of the card is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 Whisper White. I stamped the large scallop image using Lucky Limeade and the 6 petal flower using Melon Mambo. I stamped the greeting using Basic Black. This is layered onto a piece of Whisper White using dimensionals and then to the card front also using dimensionals. Julia’s card was a single layer but I like to ‘dress’ mine up some using white on white layers. I finished it off with some Basic Rhinestones.
