Hello friends! I can't get enough of the amazing background stamps from the Simon Says Stamp Mothers Fathers Florals Release. I used the Cora Background with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers for this Mother's Day card HERE and today I'm sharing another watercolored background but this time with the Floral Background and a die cut greeting from the stamped and colored background. Super simple but effective and another way to keep the focus on the gorgeous background stamped image and coloring.
The Cora Background was stamped on Bristol Smooth Cardstock using Versamark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder before being watercolored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.
Once dry, I die cut the Simon Says Stamp Big Hugs from the background, being sure to keep all the components to put the background back together. I applied Stick It to both sides of a piece of Fun Foam and die cut the foam with the Big Hugs Die. The background panel was adhered to a white side fold card base and then the dimensional hugs was adhered to the die cut opening. I removed the other side of the backing from the fun foam and then adhered the die cut hugs on top of foam.
A greeting from the Thankful Heart Stamp Set was stamped on black cardstock using Versamark Ink and heat embossed the phrase with white embossing powder. I trimmed the phrase into a strip and adhered it to the card as shown.
