I loved making these rolodex cards. I have never done this type of craft before because I always used the rolodex in my office many many years ago. When a friend suggested that we do a Swap of decorated Rolodex cards, I thought that was weird….. Until I did a search for artsy rolodex – Whoa! There are so many people that do this and many more designs. These people are very serious about their craft. I looked around to get some ideas and came back to what I know. I know how to use stamps, ink and paper. So here is what I came up with.
I used regular size rolodex cards. I actually glue three cards together for my base because one single card wasn’t study. I also used two new Stampin’ Up! stamp sets that I was able to get with my pre-order – Celebrate Sunflowers and Tasteful Touches, as well as Band Together in which I choose the perfect sentiment. The background stamp was from Tasteful Touches and the flower itself was from Celebrate Sunflowers.
I stamped over 25 sunflowers knowing that I wanted to put 3 on each card. I used my blends to color and also applied a list mist of shimmer paint to give a soft sparkle to the flowers.
