ICS February Blog Hop Time To Sale-a-Brate Again

Welcome to the ICS February Blog Hop as we share wonderful projects using the incredible Sale-a-Bration products you can earn free with a qualifying order until February 28th. Our Design Team Members will be sharing their creative ideas to help inspire you to create your own wonderful projects.
For my card design today, I wanted to share the beautiful Calming Camellia stamp set, which is the exclusive Host Sale-a-Bration Reward you can earn free with a qualifying party/order during Sale-a-Bration. The images in this distinktive stamp set are simply stunning and I love the beautiful sentiments that make it perfect for a variety of occasions. I chose to use the images to create a beautiful background design using Merry Merlot and Blushing Bride to create a clean and simple birthday card.

This beautiful clean and simple card design is all about the stamping. I love the way the Merry Merlot Classic ink stands out against the Blushing Bride cardstock to create a vintage feel to this card design. The detailed floral images create a detailed background that reminds me of fabric and I felt like the scalloped edges helped to frame this pretty design. For the sentiment, I wanted something that was simple and elegant, so I heat embossed the image onto a label die cut with the Ornate Frames Dies with Gold embossing powder. To embellish the card, I chose to use a piece of the White Glittered Organdy Ribbon to add subtle shimmer underneath the sentimement label and I added three of the Opal Rounds for a touch of sparkle. I think this card design is an example of how you can create simply stunning card designs with this stamp set.
