Just Wanted to Say I love you Country Bouquet Vintage Inspired Card. International Smart Stampin Instagram Hop.

 Good Afternoon Everyone,

Today I'm sharing yet another card I made a while back. This time it was for the International Smart Stampin Instagram Hop and our theme was 'Love'. 

I immediately knew I had to use the beautiful Country Bouquet Stamp set. I went for a distressed and vintage look with ripped card and some blending with Crumb Cake ink.

What do you think?


Crumb Cake Card Stock

1pc - 4 1/8" x 11 3/4", scored at 5 7/8"

1pc - 5 5/8" x 2 1/2" approx


Basic White Card Stock

2pc - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"


Real Red Card Stock

1pc - 5 5/8" x 2" approx


Take the Crumb Cake card stock and fold along the score line to create your card base.

Ink up the outline heart image in real red ink and cover one of the pieces of Basic White. Lightly add Crumb Cake ink with your blending brush around all the edges of this panel and the remaining piece of basic white.

Add the plain blended card piece to the inside of the card.

On your piece of Crumb Cake stamp the smaller hearts in Crumb Cake. Then Gently rip the right hand edge. 

Also rip the right hand edge of the Real Red piece. 

Layer these pieces together making sure you have a nice strip of Real Red showing beneath the  Crumb Cake. 

Adhere this to the Basic White piece that has been stamped with the Heart. Lining up the left edges so they are flush, then place it on the card front.

Using a Blending Brush, add some Crumb Cake ink to the edges.

On scraps of Basic White stamp the sentiments in Real Red ink and trim.

Then create the heart image, by stamping the two large images one on top of each other to create the full shape.  Ink up the leaves and stems in Crumb Cake and add the flower image directly over the top with Real Red ink. 

Fussy cut around the heart, adhere to a scrap of Crumb Cake and trim around that leaving a nice even border.

Add dimensionals to the back of the Sentiment strips and the heart and then arrange on the card front.
