Easter greetings handmade card - perfect for beginners.

This card is perfect for beginners to stamping. 

When starting out cardmaking it's easy to get confused with all the products available. You can end up with a big pile of craft goodies and still not know where to start. 

Begin with the basics..a stamp set and some ink.

'Abstract Impressions' is a stamp set ideal for basic cards.
The 2 step stamping allows you to add layers of ink to give interest without making things complicated.

I used 'Old Olive' and 'Granny Apple Green' inks for the grass and the flowers are created using 'Gorgeous Grape' and 'Highland Heather' inks.
The photopolymer stamps are clear so you can see exactly where to place the stamps to layer the images. 

You can add extra detail by stamping more of the flower heads and cutting some out to add on dimensionals to give more height to your card, scatter a few sequins or even add some ribbon but i have kept this super simple to show how easy it is to create cards.

I have added a cardstock layer but again you could leave it without until you build up your craft supplies.
