The Design Process by Fliss Goodwin


Hello again everyone, my project this week is actually my birthday card for my younger daughter as she’s 22 today. She’s in the final year of her degree in Fashion Design at Kingston University so as soon as I saw this image stamp by B Line Designs, I had to have it. She loves vintage and retro so my card has a rather retro feel to it.
Here’s What You Need: 
 Memento Dew Drops – Sweet Plum, Lilac Posies, Bamboo Leaves, Pear Tart
8x8 White Card Blank
Cream and Beige Cardstock

How To:

·      Cut a piece of beige cardstock slightly larger than the card blank and using the Memento ink colours and the 2 daisy type stamps from the small Prima set, start with the darkest inks colours first and stamp at random until the card is covered. Tear the edges to fit the card blank and stick on.

·       Next, using the fabric square stamp from the vintage sewing set, stamp squares across the remaining beige card (you’ll have some leftover from the above step) using the Bamboo Leaves and Lilac Posies inks. When dry, rub the Pear Tart ink over the top – this gives a lovely shabby look. Tear the edges to fit the card blank and stick across the centre.

·       Stamp the image on cream card with the Imperial Purple ink and colour with Promarkers to tone in with the decorated papers. Die cut the panel, then add to a die cut mat of kraft card. Stamp the text from the Vintage Sewing set with the purple ink, trim this and add to a mat of kraft card.

·      Assemble the card as you see, adding lace to embellish.

Quite retro I think you’ll agree with the pretty floral print and the fresh and zingy colours.
See you again next week!
