Inspired by the Front Porch


Welcome to day two of My Favorite Things teasers! Today I have a card made with the amazing Inspired by the Front Porch stamp set. The detail in this set is seriously beautiful. I've left the image uncoloured - it just didn't need any prettying up!

I cut the image using the Circle STAX Die-namics (links at the end of this post) My sentiment is stamped on the new Designer Labels 4. I used the amazing new Layered Rose to create my flower embellishment and cut the new Medium Leafy Flourish from vellum, for a little added interest without overcrowding the card.


I cut the rose from Whip Cream cardstock and crumpled each layer before putting it all together with a small brad. I love how full this flower is!


Inside my card I've stamped another image and sentiment from the set. I used Brilliance Black ink on this card, it stamps all the details wonderfully.
