A Multi-Purpose Greeting Card

Love & Care Rubber Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!

I've knocked several "to-do's" off my crafting list with today's card! I've really been wanting to focus a little creative time on the Love & Care stamp set, a gorgeous Hostess set featured in the Summer Mini Catalog. The So Shelli Creative Challenge gave me the perfect opportunity with this month's theme: Thinking of You. I took a quick peek at this weeks Mojo Sketch and got to work.

Oval Frame - Designer Frames Embossing Folder Set
Another "to-do" was trying out a few techniques with the new Designer Frames Embossing Folder Set. After embossing the oval frame, I punched out the center using the XL Oval Punch (a perfect fit!). The "take care" sentiment paired with the flower sprig nestles right in behind my "frame".

It might be hard to see, but the larger flower images were stamped using the "rock and roll" method - Pumpkin Pie for the base ink color and Real Red for the outer edges. The background flowers were "stamped off" once (onto scratch paper) to create a softer, lighter image. I used the same technique for the larger flowers/stems, but didn't stamp off.
