Hello and thanks for stopping by today! I have another really easy card to share with you today. I was at once attracted to this pretty bird in the Botanical Bliss Bundle. With the amazing Botanical Tags Thinlits dies that accompany Botanical Bliss stamp set, I can create a variety of images that convey the theme while keeping the design simple. Let’s check out a Botanical Bliss neutral color card. It’s an easy and elegant dream come true!

This is very easy and elegant card design that can be adapted for any theme or occasion. I simply can not resist using the bird stamp in this project! The unique look is created by stamping the image on Crumb Cake card stock with Crumb Cake ink. A blender pen and the stamp pad helped to give just a touch of darker shading around the bottom area of the bird. It’s very subtle but helps to build dimension in the project.
By keeping the colors extremely simple, it helps the images to steal the show. The intricate dies are gorgeous, aren’t they? I let them do most of the work and nestled them around the Stitched Shapes Framelits circle. Before adding the layered up medallion to the card front, I stamped a very light image of the floral in Botanical Bliss stamp set. This helps to draw the eye visually to create a design triangle of brown hues. MGD’s (mini glue dots) were a good assist to this project, as most of the die cuts are adhered with them and they help give a tiny lift to the images.
Available on August 1st, for a limited time, is the Color Your Season Suite.
This suite consists of the Blended Seasons Stamp set and Stitched Seasons Framelits dies. Also available to purchase will be a BRAND NEW set of Watercolor Pencils in all new colors.
