Instructions

Hello crafty friends! Today I’m sharing a card tutorial featuring the new Handwritten background stamp and the Beautiful Blooms bundle from Simon Hurley’s latest release. I usually don’t do many vintage theme projects, but I couldn’t help doing it for this card - especially using the Handwritten background stamp. I enjoyed making this card, and I hope it gives you inspiration to do something fun and creative today!

Step 1: Begin by creating an A2 card base out of Stark White Cardstock. Cut the 8½ x 11 card stock down to 4¼ x 11. Then score it at 5½. Cut another piece measuring 4 x 5¼ to be your front panel.

Step 2: On the front panel piece stamp the Handwritten image using the Emboss It Clear pad. Then, place the card stock onto the stamp and apply pressure using the brayer. Next, heat emboss using Liquid Platinum embossing powder.

Step 4: Once the background is complete, spray some water using the distress sprayer. Then, splatter some Weeping Willow ink using a brush. Next, glue the front panel piece onto the A2 card base.

Step 5: On a separate piece of card stock, stamp one of the floral images from the Beautiful Blooms stamp set. Use Fake Plant to ink the stem and leaves. Then, use Triple Berry and Crown Me ink to ink the flower. You can use the detail blending tool to apply ink onto the stamp.

Step 7: Using the coordinating die for the floral image, do partial die cutting to only die cut part of the flower. Then, use scissors to trim off the rest of the card stock to fit the front panel piece.

Step 8: Once the partial die cut is done, it leaves a hill-like shape with the flower on it. Ink blend the “hill” using Viper ink.
