Hello my crafty friends! Happy St. Patrick’s Day! If you drink, please be safe and call a ride. Me, personally I’m staying in. Okay, for today’s card spotlight I chose a card I just made. I used the free stamps and dies I got in my Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine. This one I picked up at the store because I love when it’s a cameo stamp and die set. The first magazine I ever bought from them also had a cameo stamp. I am so excited to share this card with you, I hope you enjoy! It will be up in my Etsy shop, CardstockQueen, very soon.

I made this card in about an hour and half. I had to swap out what I wanted to do for the center because the rose die from the set I was using didn’t cut how I thought it would. It’s a paper piecing die so I had to change my whole tactic. Luckily the set came with this other pretty rose stamp. Since there was very little coloring, that made it that much easier to finish in a short amount of time. For stamping I used my Misti because since the cameo’s are a solid stamp and I wanted to stamp them multiple times to make sure they were nice and solid. I don’t do horizontal top fold cards as often as a vertical side fold but I think it worked out quite nicely.
Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoyed this post, and I would love to know what you think of this card. Have a great start to your week and I will see you on Tuesday for another Step by Step.
