My project this week was doubly inspired. First by Heather's tutorial and secondly by this picture from Nichole's post today introducing more of the stamps and dies to be released on July 15th.
I was already thinking that my favorite background texture is woodgrain, and the floral design on the picture above made me think of the Stitches and Swirls stamp set. After running a small piece of card stock through my Big Shot using the impression plate, I applied Classic Kraft ink to the texture with a brayer as Heather had done in her tutorial. This was adhered to the left side. I stamped the invitation on the right along with a small image from Stitches and Swirls to move the eye from the image on the left to the information on the right. Finally, I added the ribbon and bow, rounded the corners and it was finished. Pretty simple!
You will find the usual supplies list at the end of the post. Please leave a comment; it really makes my day to hear from you!
