Calming Camellia Friendship Card by Secrets To Stamping

Hi, crafty friends! I am so excited to join the Card Chain Challenge for the very first time, where we all made a card and sent it to another participating crafter. Firstly, what a wonderful concept for a challenge! I always say the hardest part of this hobby isn’t making the card, it’s sending it to someone! Now, today is the Reveal Day so I am sharing the card that I created for Pat in Texas. Following their challenge guidelines, I used the Calming Camellia stamp set in their color suggestions as well as made it a friendship card.

I used Blackberry Bliss, Rococo Rose and a light wood designer paper for this color challenge

By the way, if you enjoy making cards and would like to take part in this worldwide card exchange challenge, you should sign up for the next Card Chain Challenge. This was my first month joining in and it really was fun! If you are interested, please check them out!

My secrets to making this In The Moment project

  • Firstly, this A6 card was made with Blackberry Bliss cardstock for the card base.
  • After that, I cut the Wood Textures DSP and embossed it with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder. Then, I adhered it to the card base.

Now, the FUN Part!

  • To begin the focal image, I stamped it onto white cardstock with Blackberry Bliss ink.
  • After that, I colored the flower and leaves with Stampin’ Blends markers (colors listed below).
  • Then, I cropped it out with the stitched rectangle die, and layered it onto Blackberry Bliss cardstock.
  • Once I completed that, I cut out the Ornate Layers frame, then popped the focal image on it with dimensionals.
  • Finally, I stamped the sentiment onto more Wood Textures paper, cropped it out with the Messages die, and placed a little piece of ribbon down before popping the sentiment up onto the card base.
  • added the Artisan pearls for a wee touch of bling.

I’m submitting this card to the following challenges:

Here is my card from Marianne in Greece. I haven’t received it yet but I can’t wait till it arrives! Isn’t it stunning?!
