Let's Go to the Boutique!

My third lesson in this amazing journey was learning how to create a Clean and Simple Boutique Card. My style of cardmaking was normally "more is better" Having unused space on a card felt awkward to me. This class taught me how to create a simple card, with all the "Wow" factor! In fact, I enjoyed this class SO much, this will be my "go to" type of card when I need a card at the spur of the moment. These cards are easy to create and this designs allows for creative expression!!! looks like you bought it at a small boutique store!

To make this card, I used a water color A 2 card base (4.25 x 5.5). I wanted my stamped image to absorb unevenly on the stippled surface. I took #Altenew's Spring Daisy Stamp Set and created a left hand border with the two flower images. I offset stamped the yellow center to add to the card's expression. The card title also came from the Spring Daisy Stamp Set.

My next card still features the Spring Daisy Stamp set but by changing colors and layout, a new vibe was created! I used Altenew's Ruby Red Ink for the flower and then took a paint brush and created a bit of shading with plain water. I also used water colors to add color to the stem. By adding a few border scribbles... the card is complete!


Once I started making these CAS cards, I was on a roll! I recently purchased #Altenew's Enchanting Beauty Stamp Set.

I love, love this set and will be using this to many of my designs! To make this card, I used the Misti stamp positioner and laid down three images in the corner of the card. I stamped with #Altenew's Obsidean Black Ink. This pigment ink is a must have! The finished image is spectacular!

Once that was complete, I simply turned the card upside down and re-stamped the same image. This gives the card symmetry. I mounted the card onto black glitter paper and finished off with a bit of black shimmer splashes! Hope these cards inspired you to create your own set of Boutique Cards!
