Simple Fancy Flourishes - Melon Mambo Combination Card

Todays card is a really quick simple one.  I chose a really perky Melon Mambo background card and topped this with Whisper White cardstock and then Melon Mambo again but punched all the way along both edges.  I have to admit this punch is a Martha Stewart as I haven't yet got any Stampin Up border punches.....note to self, order border punch asap..........

This then had one of the Fancy Flourishes stamps stamped in Old Olive.  I then wiped the colour off the flower head of the stamp with a cotton bud and and dabbed the end of the stamp in Melon Mambo.  Sounds much more complicated than it was.  If you have the markers you could use them insted.  I repeated this three times along a piece of Whisper White card then layered it up on the Melon Mambo.

This makes a very simple card to keep in stock for any occasion or for adding a sentiment on when needed.

If you wanted to recreate this card you would need:

Whisper White cardstock
Melon Mambo Cardstock
Melon Mambo Inkpad (or marker pen)
Old Olive Inkpad (or marker pen)
Fancy Flourishes Stamp set
Any fancy Border punch
