International Highlights Blog Hop – June 2022 -Nature’s Prints

I am excited to be a part of Kylie Bertucci’s International Highlights Blog Hop for June 2022. The theme for the International Highlights Blog Hop is “Thank You!” I chose to use the Nature’s Prints Bundle for this month’s gallery. It is one of my favorite stamp sets! I love the distinctive nature of the stamps, as well as, the light and airy script for the greetings. I chose a monochromatic color scheme using one of the 2022-2024 In Colors – Starry Sky with Basic White.

The Fern 3D Embossing Folder adds texture and dimension on a Basic White layer. Stitched Rectangle Dies were used to cut a Starry Sky layer on which the die cut images were placed. I finished off with some Iridescent Pearls and silver Simply Elegant Trim. The inside was, again, layered with a layer of Basic White mounted on Starry Sky. A stamped image in lower right hand corner of the inside layer carried through the monochromatic theme and images from the front of the card.

The top 10 entries with the highest number of votes will get to go on and participate in an International Blog Hop at the end of the month. If you would consider taking a moment and vote for my card, I would greatly appreciate it! Directions for voting are down below.

The video below will show you instructions for the card, as well as, two others. Further down in the post, are the measurements, supply list and written instructions. Leave me a comment below and let me know which card you like best!
