Here is another card I just did for a swap. I think swaps are fun and a wonderful way to share ideas with fellow crafters!!
As cute as the four little doodle stamps from this set are, I had a brain freeze at first when I tried to create a card with them! I saw the decorative paper that I used, really liked it, and then began to work from there. So, pretty much everything was deigned around the paper! THe card base is old olive and the first layer is not quite navy. I attached the layers to the card with gloe dots in the corners, so they would not be in the way when I punched the circle window through the layers. I had to push REALLY hard....but the punch went through all of the layers!! The ribbon had to be tied through the window! That little window was just begging to have ribbon tied to it! (lol) I layered piece of whisper white card stock on the inside. I thought the doodle flower image would show up better on white than olive. Plus I really wanted to color the image, not just stamp it with black on green. The image was colored with markers.
Even though the pattern of the decorative paper was busy, I wanted to add something else. I punched out the flowers in the not quite navy and old olive and dotted the center with my trust white gel pen.............one of my favorite little pens!
Well, that's it for today! Hope you enjoyed this simple little card, and I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!!
Everything used to create this card is from Stampin' Up! Stamp set is doodle that and the decorative paper is from the petals and paisleys pack - both featured in Stampin' Up's Spring mini catalog.
