I created a clean and simple one layer card using the Hello Sunshine stamp set. This set includes many elements that can be used to build your own backgrounds or patterns. So I decided to create a floral frame or wreath to highlight the images in the set.

I made a video tutorial to show you how to create this card. I’m also sharing some special tips in the video you won’t want to miss. You can watch it here or on my YouTube channel:

How to Make a Clean and Simple One Layer Card using Your Own Floral Frame

  1. Cut Neenah Solar White Cardstock 80LB into 4.25 x 5.5 using Tim Holtz paper trimmer. (You can stamp your images directly on the A2 size top folding card if you want to. However, I stamped the images on the panel first and adhered the stamped panel to the card base later. Just because I wanted to make sure that my stamping surface is flat so I don’t make any mistakes on stamping.)
  2. Draw an oval shape on the paper using a pencil and the oval die from Pretty Pink Posh.(If you don’t have this die, you may draw the oval frame yourself. It’s okay not to be perfect because you are going to erase it eventually.)
  3. Stamp the sentiment from the Hello Sunshine stamp set inside the oval with black ink.
  4. Stamp the images from the Hello Sunshine stamp set along the oval pencil line using black ink. (If you use Altenew black ink for stamping like I did, make sure to dry your stamped images first before you color them with Copic markers to prevent from ink bleeding. Otherwise, I recommend you to use Memento Tuxedo black ink or Hero Arts intense black ink.)
  5. Color the images using Copic markers and erase the pencil line.
  6. Adhere the colored panel on an A2 size top folding card using glue tape.
  7. Add white dots on some of the flowers using white gel pen and black dots around the foliages using a black pen.
  8. Finish off the card by applying some shimmer with Wink of Stella Glitter Clear Brush on the images.
