Today is Feature Day 2 of LDRS Creative’s latest release. Yesterday’s post was all about their new dies and beautiful toner sheets for foiling with a laminator. Today I am keeping things simple. I will be using the Wildflower Stamp Set, Special Occasion Sentiments Stamp Set, and the coordinating dies. So let’s make a card.

card supplies

  • Wildflowers Stamp Set
  • Special Occasions Stamp Set
  • Special Occasions Die Set
  • One Fine Day Paper Pack
  • Black card stock
  • Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110lb
  • Paper Trimmer
  • Foam tape
  • Liquid glue
  • Alcohol Markers

card details

  • Cut, score and fold an A2 top-folding card base.
  • Select the pattern you wish to use from the One Fine Day Paper Pack. They are hard to choose from!
  • Using the Wildflowers stamp set, stamp your image on alcohol marker friendly card stock. You can see I stamped this at an angle. I had cut this panel at 4.25″ x 5.5″ (we will cut it down later).
  • Stamp your sentiment from the Special Occasions Stamp Set. There are so many to choose from here!
  • Die-cut your sentiment and a shadow. I cut my shadow in black to tie in with the border of the card. Glue these together.
  • Color your wildflower image. Use whatever medium you want!
  • I cut both my stamped image panel and patterned paper at an angle. I taped them together and used Gina K’s largest rectangle from the Master Layout 2 to die-cut the main rectangle.
  • Then I cut a piece of black card stock 1/4″ larger on two sides (leaving you with an all-round border of 1/8″)
  • Glue the stamped panel and patterned panel to the black border panel.
  • I also added 1/8″ strip to separate the stamped image from the pattern paper.
  • The main panel is popped up on foam tape and adhered to the card base. The sentiment is also popped up on foam tape for more dimension.
