Nature's Nest Card


Yes! It's Friday! I love that feeling!

A couple of months ago, I was asked to design and create cards as gifts for the guests of a wedding. It was held at Mackinac Island and they wanted that to be incorporated. I designed four cards and I will be sharing them with you over the next couple of days.

I had just gotten the Nature's Nest Stamp Set from Stampin' Up! (scroll down for a picture) a few days before I got this card order, and that's the first thing that came to my mind.

Believe it or not the base card is white! I wanted the whole card to have texture, so I brayered the card base with old olive. Because I had the majority of the card covered, I could get even coverage and cover up the "lines" where the ink had overlapped. I stamped three turtles in Chocolate Chip ink, so the lines wouldn't stand out too much. I used my blender pen and Always Artichoke classic ink to water color the turtles.

I am so bummed that Stampin' Up! retired Warm Words! I had gotten that set as a Christmas present from my mom, and I just LOVE the font and sentiments.
