Feel Better Soon
I had occasion to send a card to a friend recovering from an operation recently and thought that you might like to see it. The flowers were inspired by some I saw on a card on Pinterest by Cheryl Garratt. If you visit her blog she has some great instructions for making your flowers have more dimension.
I started by stamping the greeting from the Express Yourself stamp set onto Whisper White card using Island Indigo ink and then I embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder. I attached the embossed card to the bottom of Soft Sky card. I cut Whisper White card using the Paper Doily Sizzlits Large and then cut the Doily in half and attached to the centre of the Soft Sky card. I wrapped this piece with Crumb Cake 1/2″ Tafetta Ribbon and tied a bow before attaching to scored and folded Crumb Cake card. I stamped the flowers from the Stippled Blossoms stamp set onto scrap Whisper White card using Soft Sky/Marina Mist ink, Soft Sky/Island Indigo ink and cut them out. The leaves are stamped onto scrap Whisper White card using Pear Pizzazz and Gumball Green ink and then cut out. I added some dimension to the flowers and leaves as per Cheryl’s instructions. The flowers and leaves are attached using Glue Dots. I also added a Basic Pearl to the centre of each of the flowers.
I hope that my friend loves her card as much as I do.
Bye for now,
