Simple Island Indigo

These recent cards I have made are to show you how versatile just a couple of stamp sets, matching card stock, ink and punches can be.

Island Indigo

This card is made with Island Indigo and Very Vanilla card stock, petite petals stamp set and matching punch.

Start with making your card base. Make a layering panel with Very Vanilla (half a centimetre less for layering).

Cut two panels of Island Indigo 6cm x 6cm and two Very Vanilla layering panels.

Taking two of the flower stamps and Island Indigo ink, stamp a central flower on the small panels.

Using some scrap card, ink the stamp then stamp once on the scrap card then stamp the small vanilla card on the corner. Make sure you place some scrap card underneath too.

Continue this, stamping on scrap then on the Vanilla card, for the smaller layering panels and the main Vanilla layer. Once you have stamped these up your card is ready to be put together.

Using Snail, adhere the Vanilla to the base and also the smaller layering pieces. Use dimensional to adhere the panels to the card, in whatever pattern you like.

You can either leave it like this or ,as I have done, add candy dots to the centre of the central flower, one in opposite corners then punch a flower and add that with a glue dot.

Simple yet effective. I think this can be made as a multi-purpose card. It would do as a birthday card for male or female, a Thank you card or even ‘just because’.

Now you are adding to your collection you can begin to make any card with any colour combination you like.
