Today’s card was made using the Bottled Happiness Bundle which includes the Bottled Happiness stamp set and the Vintage Bottle Punch. I also used my Stamparatus to line up the two images that make up the bouquet of flowers.
For the base of my card I used one of the Tea Boutique Cards & Envelopes and as the name states, there’s a matching envelope for each card base. I layered a piece of Basic White cardstock and Starry Sky cardstock together and adhered them to the front of the card.
I cut another piece of Basic White cardstock and placed it in the Stamparatus. There are two stamps that make up the bouquet (see the diagram below). I used the stamp with the leaves first and placed it on the cardstock exactly where I wanted and then closed the Stamparatus cover so the stamp would stay in place. I used my Parakeet Party Stampin’ Write Marker to color the leaves on the stamp and the Starry Sky Stampin’ Write Marker to color the small flowers which are actually the centers of the larger flowers. Then I closed the cover to stamp the image onto my Basic White cardstock. I colored the images a second time so they’d be darker.
The beauty of the Stamparatus is that you can remove the plate and turn it around and use the other side (plus it comes with two plates) which I did. I didn’t remove the first stamp so I can make multiples of my card at a later time. When I stamped the other image, I used my Orchid Oasis stamp pad to color the images. It took me several tries (five or six, if I’m being honest) to get my stamps aligned exactly how I wanted them. It was worth it because I love the finished bouquet. Imagine all the possibilities with different colors!! Those two stamps aren’t coming off my plate for a while!
I adhered the bouquet stamped image to the front of the card and then stamped the bottle in Starry Sky ink and cut it out with the Vintage Bottle Punch. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it below the bouquet. I used the All That Dies to cut the sentiment banner and then stamped the sentiment in Orchid Oasis ink using the stamp set, Bottled Happiness.
I used several Mini Glue Dots to adhere the sentiment to the bottle. Then I used three strands of White Baker’s Twine (part of the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack) and made a bow. I added a Mini Glue Dot to the back and adhered it to the bottle.
