Hi blogging friends
Thanks for your 'Get Well' wishes from my last post - I really appreciated them and they certainly cheered me up no end!
Today I am sharing a card I made for my Mum's birthday. This is also my entry for the following challenges:
Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper - September Challenge - where the challenge is to encourage you to use up your stash of patterned paper. The challenge is also open worldwide which is really cool!
Splitcoaststampers - Ways to Use it WT533 - Favourite Tools - mine are my Big Shot, Dies, Perfect Layers Tools, Lace Doily edge punch and embossing folders.
This was one of those times where everything for my card came together very quickly and easily: just love it when that happens :-)
Every layer on the card is patterned paper - no cardstock other than once I had finished the card front, I attached it to a white cardstock base - and all the papers are by Basic Grey - Kissing Booth - which I bought back in 2011. The image is a 3D sticker by K and Co. which I have had for quite a few years and had completely forgotten about it till I was rummaging around in my stash looking for something floral. I diecut a circle from cream designer paper and ran it through my Big Shot using my Jamara embossing folder then popped the sticker on the paper but added a bit of Tombow Mono Multi glue to the back of the sticker to make sure that it would stick really well to the embossed paper.
The pale pink paper on the bottom panel was also embossed with the Jamara folder and the dark pink paper was punched using a Martha Stewart Lace Doily edge punch.
The pale pink seam binding was attached in 2 separate elements and the bow itself was made using my Bow Easy. I added Fray Stop to the cut ends to stop them from fraying.
The sentiment is from a clear set by Impression Obsession - Sentiments 1 - and was stamped using Versafine Onyx Black ink onto some of the pink designer paper. I diecut the sentiment using a Spellbinder Labels Trio die and added some Couture Creations pink gemstones to each end.
All the layers were trimmed to 1/8" using my Perfect Layers Tools.
The K and Co. sticker came with tiny pink gemstones already added to the flowers plus both the butterfly and flowers were already glittered (not that you can see the glitter in my photo but it is there!). Here is a close-up so you can see the dimension on the image:
