Nature's Wonders

Here are some more of my mini cards.
No, you’re not seeing double, there ARE two of each card pictured! I usually do this so that I always have a spare card for a rainy day.

I used stamps from the Nature’s Wonders set. There are 4 in the set for £14.95 and that works out at £3.74 each - a bargain! Plus, they come in a sturdy storage box.
The code number is 100747 and you can see the whole set on page 46 of the catalogue.

The Dragonfly one is on Whisper White card stock and the Sand Dollar one is on Very Vanilla.

The background was stamped using the Sanded background stamp. These are huge and will cover the whole of an A6 card in one go.
A good tip is to lie the inked stamp on its back and carefully place the card on top. Cover with a piece of scrap paper and smooth over gently with your hand, the back of another stamp, or roller over it with a brayer. Remove the scrap paper and lift your card straight up and there you have it - a perfectly inked background!

I stamped the images and inked their edges and also the edges of the card base to give them a bit of definition.
They were then layered onto the card bases with Dimensionals and a little of the Dazzling Diamonds glitter was added to give a bit of sparkle.

A swirl was added to the envelopes with the stem image from the Mixed Bouquet set, which is one of the sets on special offer at the moment. See side bar for details.
