A peaceful card

March 9, 2011

I saw a sketch a week or so ago on Try Stampin’ on Tuesday and have only just got around to trying it.  I wanted to use my new Ovals Originals Die and this sketch was perfect.

I started with a Crumb Cake card base (21cm x 14.8cm, scored and folded to make a 14.8cm x 10.5cm card).  My Bashful Blue card has been embossed using the Petals-A-Plenty embossing folder, however, it is only partially embossed.  First I embossed one end and then I embossed the other end, leaving a 2cm gap in the middle.  I scored along the edges of the embossing and wrapped some of the gorgeous Victoria Crochet Trim between the score lines.  I stamped the image from Every Moment onto the largest of the ovals cut from the Ovals Originals Die using Stazon Black ink.  I used my blender pen and my Stampin’ Pastels in Crumb Cake, Certainly Celery and Bashful Blue to colour the image.  I also stamped the butterfly twice onto scrap Whisper White using Stazon Black ink and coloured them using my Bashful Blue pastel.  I added the oval to the card base using dimensionals and then attached the butterflies to the oval using Snail.

I think this card is so peaceful looking.  It would make a great Mother’s Day card or even an “I’m thinking of you” card.  I am so happy that I also used  some of that beautiful Victoria Crochet Trim which will be retiring at the end of this month, so if you want some you had better be quick with your order.

Bye for now, Kris.
