Don’t you like surprises? That’s what today’s card was, because it developed quickly, with only a simple sketch as a guide.

Surprise Vine


I began by stamping a vine, one up and one down, diagonally, from the Flowering Blooms Stamp Set in Jet Black Stazon Ink on Basic White Cardstock, 3 3/4″ X 5″. Then, I stamped “thank you” from the Art Gallery Stamp Set in the middle. 

Next, I backed the white layer with True Love Designer Paper, 1/8″ larger, so it would have a 1/16″ border of the back & white pattern. This was glued to a Rococo Rose card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. 


I created the two middle strips with Fine Art Floral Designer Paper, a Floral Gallery Die, and Foam Adhesive Sheets. Do you see how the strips fit together? Total surprise! 

The pink and orange were so pretty together, I added some Woven Threads Sequins in those colors.


I was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches.
