Hi Bee friend! It’s Bobbi Lemanski here sharing a “new home” congratulatory card today. In my day life, I provide interior design services for homeowners. When a project is complete, I like to give a gift to the homeowners to congratulate them on their finished home. A handmade card is just the right touch to go with a gift. I am loving the new Rooting For You set for this purpose. However, these sets can be used for so many more reasons/occasions, too!
For this 5″ X 7″ card, I used the Swirling Leaves A2 Cover Plate die set die, cut from Neenah 80lb Solar White cardstock. I used two superfine-tip markers in light and dark green and connected the design dots, making it look like hand sewn vines growing in the background. I offers a bit of “textile” fun! The die cut piece was matted with a green cardstock and attached to a white front measuring 4-1/2″ wide X 6-1/2″ tall.
Using Bee Creative Intense Black ink, I stamped the Happy Plants stamp set images. I die cut them using the coordinating Honey Cuts die set. I colored them in using shades of lavender, greens and browns. Here are the Copic Marker colors I used:
- Lavenders: V0, V12, V04, and V09
- Greens: UG99, YG67, YG63, YG61, YG03
- Earth (browns): E59, E57, E55, E53, E50, E43, and E42
- Warm grays: W4, W3, W1, W0, W00 for shading
Everything was colored, assembled and adhered in place using Honey Bee Stamps Bee Creative Precision Glue. I also used Scrapbook Adhesives .25 Foam Squares in white to pop up the basket and small planter stand on the left.
I stamped the phrase from the Rooting for You stamp set using Honey Bee’s Bee Creative Clear Embossing and Watermark Ink Pad on a mulberry-colored cardstock. I embossed it using White Opaque Embossing Powder and die cut it out. I attached it at the top and added some lavender Honey Bee sequins.
I attached the entire front to a lavender A7-sized card base.
