Nature Walk ...

Hi Everyone
Today's card is a birthday card I've made for my neice Claire. Hopefully she wont visit my blog until after she's received her card! Anyway, if you do visit my blog Claire - happy birthday for Saturday and hope you, Nick & Bramble have a lovely day!

I've been using two of the new stamp sets from the Mini Catalogue for this card - Nature Walk and Four Frames. First of all I stamped some of the images from the Nature Walk stamp set in Almost Navy & Chocolate Chip (stamping a couple of times on scrap paper first so that the images would be quite faint). I then masked off certain areas with sticky notes and sponged the rest with Almost Navy. Of course I had to use my crimper again for the centre strip and finished off with some linen thread.

For the inside of the card, I've stamped the butterfly on Whisper White cardstock, again in Almost Navy, punched out the corners using the Boho Blossoms punch and added a jewel to each corner. Voila!

Happy Stampin'
