SHC - It's Your Day

..... 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.

Lovely stitched background, and the wreath coordinates beautifully. Nicely decorated inside and out. Thanks for joining Sunday Stamps this week.
