Ivy Lane and March Stamp of the Month Card

This Ivy Lane paper pack makes me think of Spring and for many of us we are ready to see spring now.  It was one of those cards that almost made itself.



Base is a 5 ½ x 4 ¼” Colonial Card and Envelope

Ivy Lane paper is trimmed to 2 x 4 (this will be the back side of the paper) and 2 ¾ x 4” (this will be the front side of the paper).  Cut a length of the ½” trim paper (found on each B&T sheet) from the Ivy Lane paper pack cut to 4”.

Using a sponge dauber, distress the outside three sides of both pieces of Ivy Lane paper using Chocolate ink.

Mount  papers as shown in photo.

Stamp hearts from the March Stamp of the Month – Happy Place onto scraps of Cotton Candy cardstock using Chocolate ink and cut out.  Place the hearts on the left side of the card using 3-D Foam Tape to add dimension.  Add a Flamingo Dot to the center of each heart for added interest. 

Stamp envelope with the same heart from the stamp set for a unifying look.
