Verdant Garden

Happy Saturday to You! Yay … it’s the weekend but brrr it’s chilly here! Today I have a lovely card to share with you using Verdant Garden Stamp Set.

Do you know anyone who Quilts or Stitches? I am sure they will love this card!

Verdant Garden

The Verdant Garden Stamp Set is a sweet set that could easily be overlooked as it follows the Magnolia Lane Suite in the catalogue!

It also has some sweet Designer Series Paper that bundles it up in the Garden Lane Suite.

For today’s card I did create my own ‘patterned paper’ to represent a quilt pattern.

My pattern is stamped in Pretty Peacock and Soft Sea Foam but you could really do this pattern in any colour combination. Simply start with the darker stamp and then line up the second stamp in the lighter Soft Sea Foam colour. Keep stamping until you have the desired size.

Now I stamped a larger panel than I required then cut it down with the Rectangle Stitched Dies. I then layered my piece onto a larger Rectangle Stitched piece in Pretty Peacock (I’m loving that new In Color!)

The sentiment is a stamp from the Free as a Bird Stamp Set. Now you may notice I’ve only used part of the stamp. You can do this by using your markers to colour just the words you want then stamp as you normally would.

To finish my card I added a piece of the Scalloped Linen Ribbon in Pretty Peacock with a strip of braided Linen Thread over the top. Then just some pieces of knotted Linen Thread tied around the ribbons. You could quite easily give this card to a guy too!

The background on my card is done with using the little star image randomly in Soft Sea Foam. I added a little extra interest to my card base by flicking the Soft Sea Foam marker on the background.

I do hope you like today’s card as much as I did making it!
