Creating a card from the unexpected!


This card was really just a fluke... I was playing around with some tiny 
images that are included on my grass stencil. 
The stencil is from Your Next Stamp, and it's safe to sat that out loud 
since Stampin' Up doesn't offer a grass stencil.
The stencil has a few little flowers on it 3 different sizes, and a some little dot patterns and as you can see I put those to work.  Basically, I just wanted to see how they would look, so I just blended them with some Fresh Freesia Ink and a blending brush - keeping most of the color in the center of the flowers.

I blended a few of the dots in Basic Grey Ink in random placements on the card.
Then finished off by cutting 3 layers from a random word die "Thanks". 
I used liquid glue to build the 3 layers up and then glued them to the card front.
3 Layers of Cardstock glued together gives a lovely look of dimension. 
Yet. it's different than using dimensionals. The sentiment appears so 
solid and popped up off the page.  Give it a try! 

The Basic White layer is backed with a card base cut from Smoky Slate cardstock.
Which pairs nicely with the random grey dots.
I had a few grey colored pearls that have since retired in my stash, so I added a few in the centers of the flowers for a little added pop!

Hence, an experiment turned into a card!
A card that was so simple and easy! 

For the card inside, I just blended a couple of flowers and used a retired greeting that remains in my "must keep" pile.


Find a random stencil that you may have in your 
stash and give this card a try! 
I'm sure you will love the results!

I hope this card has given you a little creative inspiration!
