Another couple of cards for you to look at. Both of these were easy as cards to make. The longest part of my card making process ends up being the sentiments, Stamp it or Die cut it; which one: birthday, hello, thanks, punny etc; size and placement. Sometimes I end up going through so many folders looking for just what I want and its driving me nuts. Does anyone have an easy answer to this? Thin them out so theres less to pick from? Add the sentiment first and build the card around it?
Anyway this is my first ohh so simple card. The rose panel is an IO background stamp stamped and white embossed on vellum (yes my favourite as you would know if you follow me). I have coloured half the panel in blues and the other half in pinks. The pinks are for a different card.
I coloured with Zigs using one colour for each flower and using my Wink of Stella to thin and move the colour around and add lots of sparkle.
Check it out!!!
I then taped down the rose vellum panel onto the card base and cut a piece of scrap
card stock with the curved scalloped border die. Attached to the card front and finished off with some blue sequins and the Best Wishes sentiment that I curved to follow the line of the die cut and used my Misti to hold it in place. I truly love this card and how it turned out.
Now this card was made using a piece of Yupo coloured with greens and yellow alcohol ink. I made this piece ages ago and thought it would be perfect for this die cut floral frame. The floral frame is one of five in the set so I have more to share later.
Of course now I have the piece that was cut in the Alcohol ink for another time but this time I cut in white as well.
I have cut a piece of adhesive fun foam to the same size as the floral diecut frame.Attached to the cardbase that is narrower than my usual cards to suit the diecut panel. After adding the while layer I then added the negative pieces in alcohol ink. I couldnt for the life of me find the alcohol ink centre for the flower but luckily I had decided to use bright green funfoam and it works perfectly there.
Here you can see the funfoam behind the die cut. Brilliant bright colour, yes !!
This time I finished off with a sentiment "just a note" as it is a thinner card. Great font isn't it, one I have had for ever so long and just perfect. A few enamel dots in greens and Im happy.
Had to share a photo of this brilliant find in Spotlight, I think it may have been a one off stock but keep your eyes open girls. Was not expensive, A5 size 5 of each colour, lovely and bright colours and even a soft grey at the bottom and the funfoam has adhesive tape on the bottom. Perfect for those layers on your cards.
