Are you ever inspired by magazine ads? That’s where my inspiration came from for today’s post… a pair of curtains that had a grid on them in a diamond pattern with flowers. I saw this ad while getting my hair done and had to take a photo of it for future reference! It goes to show that inspiration can strike from anywhere… and at any time!
The grid lines in the curtains really inspired me, so I started off my card by stamping lines from the Grid Lines Two stamp set with a gray ink onto a white cardstock A2 sized card base. Next, I stamped some leafy circles in Bright Buttercup ink and began stamping the floral motifs in Raspberry Fizz ink.
Last, I wanted to add a cardstock strip and a layered butterfly. I cut the butterfly twice, once from cardstock and once from polka-dot vellum and layered them together with the Color Pop Butterflies die. The little tag was cut with Tiny Tags and stamped with With All My Heart stamps. A piece of twine and an enamel dot finished it off! It was actually a really quick card to make! I couldn’t resist making another one in other colors to go with it.
On the red version of this card, I played around with the butterfly and stamped on the white cardstock layer underneath before adding the vellum butterfly over the top.
Here is the finished card set with the lined/floral stamped backgrounds! (I’m kind of partial to the red one, myself. How about you?)
