..... Morning! It's time for my weekly Seven Hills Craft blog post. Last weekend was Mothering Sunday in the UK and I hope all you mums out there had a super time. I've already shared the cards I made for my mum and mother-in-law, and this week I'm sharing a card that I made for my aunt. She's very much like a second mum to me and I always send her flowers and make her a special card:
Stamps: Reverse Confetti - Farmhouse Wreath; The Greetery - Sentiment Suite: Birthday
Inks: Versafine Clair - Nocturne
Dies: Reverse Confetti - Farmhouse Wreath; C&9 - Stitched Vines Card Front Die; Gina K - Master Layouts 1
Accessories: White & Black Card; SU Card - Daffodil Delight; Copic Markers; Sheer Shimmer Spray - Sparkle
I'm submitting this card to Sunday Stamps Challenge - SSC#279 where they have this bold spring colour palette to play with. I'm also playing along with Cardz 4 Galz - C4Glz#169 where they want to see flowers for Mother's Day.
I used dies to cut a piece of yellow card to size and then ran it through my Big Shot with my new stitched vines die. I love this pretty pattern. I layered the panel on black card and adhered to the front of an A2 notecard (US size card). I spritzed the whole panel with gold tinted shimmer spray, sadly you can't see it in the photo above! Next, I used my MISTI to stamp the farmhouse wreath, the extra flowers and the string on white card. I removed the card and coloured the images with Copic markers and then returned them to the MISTI and stamped again with black ink for a crisp image. I used the matching dies to cut out the images and adhered them flat to the card. I finished the front by making a flag sentiment. I stamped the greeting on white card, trimmed it to size and then cut the flag end by hand. I snipped in the centre of the card and then cut diagonally from the corners to meet the top of the cut - a quick, easy way to add a flag. This card is flat and easy to mail. Inside the card, I cut a mat layer of yellow card and on the white panel added a greeting and another flower.
That's all from me today. Keep safe. See you soon.
