Beautiful Day Cameo Card

Hello! Britt Bass here today to share a sweet little card with lots of die cutting and a few inking techniques.

Sweet Stamps manufactures many exceptionally good quality steel rule dies.  I have used three of the ones available to create the focal cameo and floral image on this card.

First I took a blank white piece of cardstock and stamped the Antique Leaf Scroll  border stamp with Versamark three times on the cardstock and embossed it using White Fine Detail embossing powder.  I used two colors of distress inks and applied them to the background with a ink blending tool.  The white embossed stamped image resisted the inking beautifully.

I took orange, white and green DCWV cardstock and cut using the Mini Flower die, the Cameo Lady die and the Fancy Leaf die. I also cut a label shape from a label die set from my stash.  I assembled the lady and the label together to create the cameo and assembled the flowers.  I used pearl paint to add pearls to the lady and pretty pearlized centers to the flowers and set both aside.

I used the Beautiful Day stamp to add a sentiment to the green strip of paper. (The original stamp says "Have a Beautiful Day" but I masked off the beginning of the phrase before I inked it in order to make it possible for me to use only the words I wanted to).  I added the sentiment, a piece of polka dot mesh and a ruffled ribbon to the bottom of the card.  I adhered my cameo, the flowers and the leaf die cuts onto the card and it was all done!!

Take a look at all the wonderful supplies to help you recreate this card available on Sweet Stamps' online store!
