Scandinavian Folk Art Inspired Red & White Cards

Hi Friends, Emily here with you today sharing three cards inspired by Red & White Scandinavian Folk Art Designs using the whimsical floral image from Botanical Borders and the scalloped border image from the Accent Borders Stamp Set. I love how much pop the bright white brings to red images and patterns on one layer stamped cards—Clean and Simple yet Bold.
For my first two cards, I used deep red ink on white card stock and the two card designs are almost the same except for the line width between the borders and the stamped red hearts on the one card panel.
For both card panels, I used a MISTI with an A2 Alignment Guide to make sure my stamped images where nice and straight across the card panel. I started by stamping in red ink the Whimsical Floral Botanical Image to two white cardstock A2 Panels. Then I positioned the accent scalloped border just below the stamped floral border and stamped with red ink. To get the slimmer width between the two border images on the second card, I kept the stamp in place on the MISTI and simply moved the second panel where I wanted and stamped the image with red ink. The Thank You sentiment is also part of the Botanical Border Stamp Set that I stamped in the center of the design with black ink. To finish Red & White Stamped Cards, I like to add the stamped panels to Kraft, White and Light Grey card bases. Each color card base brings something a little different to the overall design.
For my third red & white folk art card design, I stamped the images in VersaMark Ink which I heat embossed with white embossing powder to rich red cardstock. The sentiment was stamped in VersaMark Ink for a watermarked sentiment look. I then trimmed the stamped panel so it fit on a 4-Bar cardbase. With this quick & simple card design, you could make an entire set of 4-bar thank you notecards in no time!
So there we are friends three Red & White Scandinavian Folk Art inspired cards using Botanical Borders and Accent Borders Stamp Sets! As a side note, if you don’t fancy the red, you can also achieve a similar folk art design with Blue :-) Thanks for stopping by and Big Paper Hugs!
