Afternoon Crafty People,
How are you all??
I can not believe how random this weather is, we have had some lovely sunshine up in the North East over the last couple of days, so much so we even managed to get out into the garden and get the grass cut along with hedges trimmed, drive cleaned cars washed, now within two days the heating is back on. Random!
The Card I have for you today is a card I made for my farther in law to give to my mother in law for her birthday and apparently they both loved it.
I went over the top with this card but I loved it. I also experimented with lots of different papers and a colour combination that I never thought I would use, but it worked out alright.
So The card is an 8x8 card blank covered with five coordinating backing papers.
The main topper is a image I stamped from the Crafters Companion Popcorn Bear Range I stamped it in black ink and embossed it with a clear embossing powder. I then coloured it in using my Promarker pens. The sentiment is from a Humprey stamp plate, again stamped in black ink and embossed using clear embossing powder. I personalised it by writing in the recipients name.
I created a spray of flowers these are all hand made I started by cutting a five petal flower from my Cricut machine, coloured them in to match the colours of the backing papers and the topper with my Promarker pens, each flower is created from three five petal flowers cut and shaped into the rose shape. To create the different sizes I simply cut the flowers from the cricut in different sizes. To finish the flowers I popped a stamen in the center of each rose. The leaves are also cut from the Cricut machine and coloured in using Promarker pens.
To finish the card I embellished it with pink ribbon and coloured buttons.
The inside of the card has been completed to patch the front of the card, I matted and layered different papers and then printed an insert of my computer.
So enough of the ramblings here is the card
