Hello once again. I am managing to make some cards – I can start to sit normally with my foot down for short periods – I don’t have to keep it elevated all the time. I am being careful and not doing too much of that, but as I am able to get into my craft room I am so much happier…..
Here is a card I created as a thank you to all the people who sent me ‘get well’ wishes, and flowers, and just keeping in touch with me over the past few weeks:
I made a few of these – the same colours and layout – as I liked how it turned out so much.
I used a dark blue slimline base card, and the die cut elements from the Concord & 9th ‘Eclectic Garden’ stamp and die set. The banner is also from Concord & 9th, as is the sentiment.
I decided to keep the birds single white layer to stand out on the background. I did some that were layered with colour, but I thought this idea was better for these colours.
I used some Tonic Nuvo drops in the centre of the flowers and the end of the shorter banner words.
I’m probably going to play a little more with these birds – different colours etc – but they look so elegant in white, don’t they?
