Creative Card Making! Send a SWEET Just Because Card: Crafty with Caly
Hi friends! Welcome to the latest edition of our bi-monthly blog series, Crafty with Caly, with the fabulous Caly Person! Read on and be sure to watch the video for all of the details on this fresh and fruity geometric card! Enjoy!
Hi there, friends! It’s Caly with you today and I’m creating a fruity card today using the Geo Flower Building set. This set is a solid stamp set with lots of different shapes for flower-building, but you can create even more with it.
I recently finished two lemon quilts (one all yellow and one more colorful) and it inspired me to create this card. I wanted to make a card full of citrus fruits – grapefruit, oranges, lemons and limes.
WATCH THE VIDEO:
To create my card, I simply stamped the different geo shapes in a variety of fruit-like colors and foliage to go with them. After stamping, I die-cut all of my images over a piece of cardstock that I ink-blended with Surf Ink.
After completing a layout, I used Glad Press ‘N Seal to pick up all the images to attach 3D foam squares to the back. Then I picked up the Press ‘N Seal to lay all the images over the ink-blended panel again to stick them in place for some dimension on each image.
To finish my card, I attached an embossed sentiment from the You Shine stamp set. I also embellished my card with some clear dew drops/enamel stickers.
I hope you like it and that it gives you some ideas for how to use this set in new ways! Thanks for visiting today! ~Caly
Thanks so much for stopping by, and thanks to Caly for being our guest!

Love this, Caly!! Your work always impresses me. Your color choices here are superb! The embellishments really “make” the card, IMO.
