Easy Can Be Unique

I have recently been using lots of Basic White cardstock for my cards. Lots of white cardstock layered on white cardstock sounds kind of boring, but the elegance can't be overstated. For Wednesday's What's Up! Stampers, I wanted to use white cardstock again but I also wanted to do something unique. Here's what I came up with:

After masking off the bottom of the card front, I used Blending Brushes to apply Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather, and Fresh Freesia ink. Then I stamped the flowers from the Enduring Beauty stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink. So simple, it's almost ridiculous. After adding a sentiment from the same stamp set, the front of the card was complete.

The front of the card is cut from the largest of the Scalloped Contours Dies.

Although there are two dies in this die set that are designed to use with specific stamps from the Color & Contour stamp set, the scalloped rectangle and scallop border dies are extremely versatile and easy to use on any card. But for this card, I used the largest of the scalloped rectangles as my card front and adhered a smaller-size card behind it that opens like a regular card.

So the front of the card is larger than the card base itself? Yep! And isn't it cool?

The size of the Thick Basic White card base is 3 1/2" x 9 1/2", scored in half at 4 3/4". It fits perfectly on the back side of that largest Scalloped Contours die.

Happy stamping!
