SHC - Simple Floral

... Morning, I'm here with my weekly Seven Hills Craft blog post. This week's post is different to my usual. I have a simple, floral card to share inspired by #cardsforukraine. The idea is to flood social media with cards made either in the colours of the Ukraine flag or use a sunflower, or both. I have used the colours in my card:

Inks: Gina K - Wild Dandelion, Blue Raspberry
Dies: MFT - Mini Slimline Stitched Stax #5, In Focus Florals; C&9 - Stitched Stripe Card Front
Accessories: White Card

I'm submitting this to Fusion - FUSION#0522 where I've used their sketch and to Color Hues - CH#36 the Ukraine flag colours.

I made a mini slimline card from white card stock - it measures 6¼" x 3¼". I masked off the top of the card and blended bright yellow ink at the bottom, and then masked the bottom and blended blue ink. I used a die to cut a piece of white card smaller than the front of the card. I added detail to the panel with the stitched stripe card front die. I adhered the panel to the centre of the card. To finish the card I die cut a simple floral which I coloured to match and then added to the front. I haven't added any sentiment as yet. Inside is also blank for my own message.

That's all from me today. See you again soon.
