For a Special Friend
I needed to create a card for a friend who is going through a difficult time and couldn’t go past the You’ve Got This stampset. I cut a flag shape from Tip Top Taupe card and embossed it using the new Elegant Dots Embossing Folder. I attached the embossed card to the left hand side of Whisper White card before attaching the panel to scored and folded Watercolour Wonder card. I stamped the flower onto Whisper White card using Stazon Jet Black ink and colored it using a Blender Pen and Watercolour Wonder, Cucumber Crush and Delightful Dijon ink. The image panel is attached to Watercolour Wonder card and then the card front. I stamped the greeting which is from the same stampset using Tip Top Taupe ink. The end of the Whisper White card is punched using the Banner Triple Punch before attaching to Cucumber Crush card, which is also punched using the Banner Triple Punch and then the card front. (How did I do that? Well first I stamped the greeting on a strip of card that was 2.5cm wide. Once the greeting was stamped, I punched one end using the Banner Triple Punch and then I cut an equal amount from each side of the greeting and trimmed the banner to the correct size. The Cucumber Crush card is 2.5cm wide also and once I punched the end, I attached the stamped banner to the trimmed the Cucumber Crush card. No measuring, no guessing, perfect!)
To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the flower using Stazon Jet Black ink and coloured it, once again using a Blender Pen and Watercolour Wonder, Cucumber Crush and Delightful Dijon ink. Once it was colored I cut out the image and attached it to the lower left hand corner of Whisper White card.
I am so pleased with how this card turned out and I know my friend will appreciate it because she knows colouring is not one of my favorite things. However, I must say this gorgeous image makes it almost fun. I’d love to know what you think.
Bye for now,
