Waterfront Scene Card for Him (Part 1)
I had the extreme pleasure of making a matching ‘his’ and ‘her’ set of cards in a recent card class, last February. I cannot believe it has been almost a month since the class and I have yet to blog about them. Join me today and tomorrow in a part 1, part 2 series where I show you the cards and how I made them.
Waterfront Photopolymer Stamp Set (#146386)
Create tranquil sceneries, whether it’s lakes lined with trees, tropical islands, or snow-covered forests. This 16 piece stamp set is ideal for trying out new coloring techniques.
* Are totally transparent for perfect image placement.
* Have just enough give to create a perfectly stamped image every time.
* Cling like crazy to our clear blocks so you don’t have to worry about slipping.
* Save space—you need only one set of blocks for all your photopolymer stamps (blocks sold separately).
* Come packaged in cases with images on the spine for easy storage and quick reference.
I use the photopolymer stamps with our Stampin’ Pierce Mat to get an even pressure and ink coverage with detailed or background stamps, every time.
The Color Palette For HIS Card
Are these colors not stunning together? I love the bold color palette of this landscape and I think my favorite part is the Blueberry Bushel!
Although the loandscape might be intimidating to create, I assure you it isn’t. Just like in class, I gave visuals to show us how easy it is to create it over and over. We made three cards in this layout, and we did it in assembly fashion.
- The water in blueberry bushel
- The land in crumb cake
- The mountains in old olive
- The trees in shaded spruce and then the sun last in crushed curry.
See, not hard at all. Just take it one stamp at a time and you can create it wiht ease.
My Card Layout
I started my card layout with creating the scene on a piece of Whisper White cardstock measuring 3.5″ x 4.75″.
I attached that to a piece of crumb cake measuring 3.75″ x just over 4.75″ but not quite 5″. Then that mat set gets adhered to a piece of Early Espresso cardstock measuring 5.25″ x 4″.
I stop right there and created the base next.
For my card base, I took a piece of crumb cake cut in the hotdog style, measuring 4.25″ x 11″ and scored down the middle at 5.5″. Before I did anything else, I cut off the cardstock on the front at the 3″ mark.
I wrapped a Blueberry Bushel 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon onto the card sandwich and then attached the early espresso to the left side of the front of the card, careful not to let adhesive spill over on the back side.
For the inside, I took a piece of Whisper White cardstock, measuring 4″ x 5.25″ and adhered it flat and blank for writing.
Thank you so much for stopping by today! Be sure to check back tomorrow for part 2. I will be showing you the HER version of this same card.
See you soon!
