Layered Lotus Stamping

by Aimes

Hey!

It's Aimes here today sharing a card I've whipped up using the lovely Lotus Stamp Set along with some additional Altenew goodies of course! :)

Congratulations

I love the sketchy nature of this stamp set, and the fact that it's a layered stamp set that has a co-ordinating die set, makes creating colored floral accents easy peasy! The flower was stamped with inks from the Red Cosmos Mini Cube Set and the leaves with inks from the Green Fields Mini Cube Set.

Congratulations Close Up

I created the card base from Altenew's Navy Cardstock and if you look closely, you'll notice that there's a bit of texture to the card front. I thought it was looking a bit plain, so inspired by my fellow teamie Lydia, I simply embossed the Shutter Cover Die over it. I love the subtle effect it adds. :)

I needed a card for my brother and sister-in-law's wedding anniversary, so opted for a congratulations sentiment from the Dodecagram Stamp Set. Then it was just a case of embellishing the design with sequins and twine for those finishing touches. Easy peasy!

Well, that's all from me today as I'd better get this card in the post!

Happy stamping!

Thank you so much, Harriet. Altenew’s navy cardstock is quickly becoming my favourite to add contrast to my cards. ;)
