Do you like experimenting with abstract patterns? Then the Eclectic Expressions stamp set is for you! Repeat, layer, and overlap images. For today’s card I decided to use only one of the pattern stamps, but I repeated it in three different colors. It’s such a simple card, but the textured dots bring it to life. Just change the colors and the sentiment, and this can be for anyone and any occasion.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Whisper White Thick card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Whisper White CS layer cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″

Stamped with the Eclectic Expressions stamp set:

  • circle images in Pink Pirouette, Soft Sky, and Wisteria Wonder inks onto the Whisper White CS layer and onto the flap of the envelope
  • sentiment in Wisteria Wonder ink onto the Whisper White CS layer
  • NOTE: I stamped off once with the Wisteria Wonder ink

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • stamped layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • That’s it!
