Dear crafty friends, good morning! Let’s celebrate a new day, life and enjoy living it in the present, the best we can!
The card I’ll show you today is part of another 5 card set I made and gave to a beyond great person. What made me happy and all teary was the reaction of joy and eagerness to open the envelope box to see what’s inside. It literally filled my eyes with tears!
Back to the card, I used cream cardstock for the card base and rounded the bottom corners using my 1-2-3 Punch Board. Then, I die-cut some leaves out of kraft and green cardstock – 2 of each. In my stash, there are many other die cut pieces like the one I used for this card’s centre. This is a kraft card oval frame, die cut using WPlus9′ s Anastasia Tag dies. I stamped ‘celebrate’ as a sentiment onto it using Tsukineko’s Brilliance fast-drying pigment ink in Graphite Black. Next step was to adhere the leaves onto the front card base. In order to give more dimension, I pierced the centre frame on the sides, thread some red twine and tied it in a bow on the right.
After that, I chose some sequins from Neat&Tangled Spring Mix set (bought from Seven Hills Crafts), 2 of each colour. It looked a bit incomplete, so, I thought adding some tiny dots with my Stabilo fineliner in red would do the trick. And that was all. My card was ready.
Wishing you a lovely day and sending you big hugs,
