Just Add Beautiful - Stampin' Up! Just Add Text

  Today's card features one of the freebie sets I received at the April Stampin' Up! On Stage event.   This isn't a set I would normally have on my wish list but free is free and it's always a good idea to step out of my comfort zone and try to something different.  I find that usually the results are pleasing  and the card is something I can proudly mail out.

  The card is very clean and simple with only a few special details.  The image is embossed in black so it has a nice shine and raised feel in real life.  The leaves and flowers are colored in with Calypso Coral and Old Olive markers.  The images are small so it just takes a minute to color it all in.  The image was then cut out with Layering Ovals framelits and another scalloped oval was cut in Old Olive to back it.

  The ovals are popped up on dimensionals over a Calypso Coral and Basic Black banner.  The card base is Whisper White thick with the bottom corners rounded.

  So the moral of the card is to pull out that stamp set that isn't your style or first choice and just sit down and play with it.  CASE the catalog layout, check out Pinterest for ideas but definitely get some ink on it and see what happens.

  Thanks for looking! Did you stamp today?
