Delicate Petals Friendship Card. I ordered the Delicate Petals Stamp set quite a while ago, but for various reasons, I did not really take a good look at it until yesterday. I spotted some stamps that were almost hidden and are clearly not close to being the main feature of this set. Well, let’s just say that they don’t appear in many of the samples in the Mini Catalogue, and certainly have not been used as feature images on any of them.
I chose to use the larger of the two images to build up larger images. Just 6 stamped impressions are needed to make up these little flourishes, which remind me of Dandelion ‘clocks’. I wanted the card to be very soft and subtle, so chose to use Soft Sea Foam for the background, with Mint Macaron for the sentiment and mat.
As ever when using stamps for a background, I find that it looks more ‘intentional’ if you stamp off the edge of your piece of card and then add even smaller elements into the main stamping, in this case, so little dot clusters. Even some of these little dot clusters were stamped off the edge of the White layer.
The ‘I’m so happy you’re my friend’ sentiment is perfect if you want something not too overwhelming, made even less overwhelming by stamping on a strip of card and then fussy cutting it out. If you have followed my projects for any length of time you will know that I love a bit of fussy cutting, in fact I am almost disappointed when there are dies in a set. But, although there are dies in this bundle, they do not die cut the sentiment, so I was good to use my Paper Snips.
The finishing touches were the addition of some Opal Rounds, these are so subtle, and work really well with the soft aqua/green tones of this card. Just three small rounds are all that is needed to give this card its final flourish.
