When I first saw a picture of this card I knew I wanted to create one myself. It is from a tutorial from Andrea Walford. I've followed her and loved her work for many, many years and iterations of her websites.
I changed very little, except how some of the background layers on the front of the card were made, as I thought the method on the tutorial was overly complex.
I stamped and hand-cut the 5 flowers from Tasteful Touches. After positioning them along the edge of the Whisper White layer I used Press N Seal plastic wrap to pick them up and keep them aligned. Then I used a Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to align the branch stamp where I wanted it on the Whisper White.
I guess one other change I made from Andrea's tutorial is that she used a craft knife to cut up her sentiment...I found that the Classic Label Punch works perfectly, especially if you cut the piece of Basic Black to the width you want your final strips to be and centre your stamping. Then it's just 4 easy punches to get your words!
Here's what I used to make this card:
July Monthly Card Class
Due to current Covid-19 conditions in Melbourne I can only offer this class as a kit/online version...we are back to Phase 3 restrictions until at least mid-August.
I will provide a kit and written instructions to make the 5 cards shown above. Participants will be able to add sentiments as desired with their own stamps and inks. Kits can be picked up from my residence in Melbourne using safe, social distancing protocols, or I can ship via Australia Post tracked satchel. Come give this a try - perfect if you've always wanted to try my classes and can't attend in person.

I've been paper-crafting since 2006, and an Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator since 2010. I love sharing my craft with others, either through classes or by creating special cards and gifts that meet their needs. Join me in creating fun!
