Hi everyone. The weather has certainly changed today from the past week. It is now raining and 15 degrees – whereas in the week it registered up to 36 degrees – phew it was hot! But it was gorgeous weather, and even though hot – I loved it – as long as I could get cool somewhere.
Today was perfect crafting weather, and I made a card for a couple of challenges:
I first die cut the Altenew ‘Spring Meadow‘ cover die out of a light blue card stock, then cut it again out of a darker blue card – called ‘velvet’ card as a satin but shiny finish.
I cut the dark blue into a rectangle, placed on a light blue card base, and then inlaid some of the shiny blue into the light blue. I did remember to cut the die with double-sided sticky sheets, which made this job so much easier.
The flower is from Altenew ‘Angelique Motifs’ and stamped using Altenew inks, as was the floral stem element.
The sentiment is from Stamps By Me, and all placed together as you see.
I shall be entering the following challenges:
The Rainbow card Challenge – Blue Breezes
Always Fun Challenges – mood board.
