Easy Card Layout With Scraps and How to Make Champagne Mist Shimmer Spray - VIDEO!

Hi Friends! Yesterday I made a few cards that I needed, and I filmed a tutorial for you too! This card layout is based on a card I had seen on soshelli.com but I can't recall which blog post I found it on. The original card was just a white card base, without the birch stamped background as I did, and the colour scheme was in pinks and blues, with a blue flower (so pretty!). So I used that layout for my inspiration, added my own spin and I was pleased with the end results. 

In the video, I also show how I make my Champagne Shimmer Mist spray that I use on everything!

The Birch background stamp adds a quick touch of rustic, but even keeping the Whisper White card stock plain is pretty too! 

This card design is also a great way to use up scrap bits of card stock too. I think it would also be pretty with strips of Designer Series Paper, instead of card stock, and finished with a sentiment banner and the flower embellishment. 

Change up the flower with a different punch or die or cut out stamp image - so many possibilities! 

The 'Baby Love' sentiment is from the "Well Said" stamp set.

I think some glimmer or foil card stock, in place of the Granny Apple Green, would also be beautiful for this Christmas version! The sentiment is from "Itty Bitty Christmas" stamp set. 

The "Thanks to You" sentiment is from the "A Good Man" stamp set.

The sentiment is from the "Playful Penguin" stamp set - I just love the script. I also stamped the words with Early Espresso ink, rather than embossing in white, and I quite like the look of it. So try using your ink pads or different embossing powders for your sentiments!

Enjoy the day & HAPPY STAMPING!
