Red Stripes and Spring Bouquet

I’m continuing my theme of simple floral cards on the SHC blog this week. My card today features no ink blending or colouring at all! Almost unheard of for me! My inspiration for this card came from a clothing print that I really like.

I chose a piece of stripy patterned paper from my craft stash, and cut it down to fit my card base.

Next, I stamped some images from the Avery Elle Spring Bouquet set with black ink, and die cut them out. Before adhering them to the card, I embossed a greeting from the same set in white directly onto the patterned paper. I then added the flowers and leaves to the card with a mix of liquid glue and foam squares.

This card was really quick and simple to make, and I love the graphic look of the black line images against the bold pattern background.
