Hello there everyone! I hope you had an amazing holiday season. I'm sharing a couple of cards today with a video included. The video is part of my new series over on our YouTube Channel called Lydia's Crafty Corner. I will be sharing a new video each Friday over on the YouTube channel, if you don't want to miss out on these you could subscribe to our YouTube Channel and you will be informed when a new video is uploaded.
So on to my cards:
All three of these cards started life in the same way. I started with a panel the same size as my card base and then cut an inch off the bottom. The amount you cut off depends on how big you want the sentiment strip to be, if you are unsure if you sentiment will fit maybe stamp this onto the bottom of the panel and discard it- you will have the exact size you need it to be.
I then drew a faint diagonal line to guide my stamping – this will be erased later. Next stamp images along this line, I used two flowers from Vintage Roses Stamp Set using Frosty Pink, Cotton Candy and Coral Berry Inks and leaves from Vintage Flowers Stamp Set using Frayed Leaf and Forest Glades inks. Once happy with the amount of stamping cut along the pencil line and then erase it.
Place the two pieces on the card base and stamp the sentiment in between the panels. I used one of the beautiful sentiments from Build A Flower Carnation. Once the sentiment is stamped then adhere the panels into place with foam tape.
For the other two cards I created the panel as described but once cut I added the two panels to separate cards for a different look.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and I'll see you again soon!
