Hello everyone and welcome to my blog.
Today I'd like to show you another card. This is for a close friend's birthday.
It's a little different for me because I normally would use more colour but this, basically, is white with a few different shades of green.
The papers I've used are from Melissa Francis and Kaisercraft. I have used a distress tool on the edges but I haven't inked them. The only inking on this card is on the chipboard frame.
The flowers are from Kaisercraft. I dry brushed the large rose with some white gesso and placed the cluster on top of a small piece of gauze. The die-cut is a Die-Namics Fancy Flourish and the leaves were cut with my Silhouette Portrait and I've shaped them a little and then doodled around the edges.
Here you can see a close-up of the chipboard frame. This is Make'it'Crafty's Ornate Square Frame and it is lightly coloured with VersaMagic Cloud White and then with VersaColor Laurel Leaf.
I love this little frame, it is really delicate. I've had it in my stash for quite a while and I'm really pleased I finally found an opportunity to use it.
The vintage brad is from Creative Charms.
The die-cut below is the Honey Bloom Sprig from Memory Box. Again, I've doodled around the edges for a little more impact.
You can see the layers a bit more clearly here/
For the inside I've used some paper from my stash and added a couple of strips of the Kaisercraft paper to decorate. The sentiment was printed using Word Art.
There you have it my lovelies. This card does look a bit pale but, surprisingly, I quite like it, hope you do too.
A footnote to my last post where I showed the card I made for my first challenge. Unfortunately it didn't get anywhere and I am a little disappointed but, it was only my first challenge and I will try again.
Thank you so much for stopping by and I do hope you will visit again.
Take care and God Bless.
