A Smiley Card
Today I have a card with hardly any stamping on it, just the first part of the sentiment which is stamped using part of an Art Impressions stamp with Versamark ink and embossed with WOW Vanilla White embossing powder.
The base card is a white A6 size and the patterned paper is from a 6 x 6 Dovecraft pad that I picked up in the supermarket. The pad is called Curiosity Corner and this is one of the pretty designs. I trimmed one piece to fit the front of the card and used the off cut to die cut the smile word and to punch out some of the small flowers. The card I used for the mats is from a Papermania multi-colour pack containing 1 sheet each of 75 shades of textured card. This is available in A4 and A6 sizes, and I bought the smaller size as I wasn't sure how much I would use it, but it is a nice light weight card which is ideal for multi layered cards and it die cuts beautifully, so I think I will have to invest in the larger size as I have already used it quite a lot. I cut the mats with two sizes of Li'l Inker stitched rectangle dies, and stuck them onto the card. I die cut the word twice more from a snippet of ivory card and stacked them up with the patterned one I cut earlier and stuck it to the green mat. I used an X Cut punch and some tiny snippets of coloured card to cut more little daisy flowers and a Brittania die and a snippet of green card to cut some small leaves. Using a small ball embossing tool I shaped the flowers a bit and arranged them on the card with the leaves before sticking them down and adding some little pearls to the centers.
