Beautiful Floral Backgrounds Made Simple
Hello! Today the Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team is all about Florals. Brutus Monroe has many beautiful floral stamps available to purchase for any occasion card that you may need. Today I am showing you a simple card using the Botanical Background stamp.
First, I stamped the background using clear embossing ink on a piece of rogue cardstock. I originally intended to heat emboss the florals with alabaster embossing powder, however once I had stamped it out I realized that I loved the watermark look and decided not to emboss. I love when the products take you in a direction you didn't intend, but love the results better than what you had planned.
Once the clear embossing ink had dried I added a piece of ribbon from a previous inspiration box down the side and stamped out the "Happy Birthday" sentiment from Super Sentimental in Raven Detail Ink on the bottom of the card. I wanted the florals to be the main focal point.
Finally, I added it to a card base using rogue and added a white cut down panel inside to write a message
This card was so simple and would be so easy to make in bulk. You could stamp out several of these very quickly adding different sentiments and using multiple colors of cardstock for variety.
