... Morning! I'm here with my Seven Hills Craft blog post. Today I've made a card for my mum. Like me, she was diagnosed with breast cancer just before Christmas. Mum had a mastectomy in February and, while she didn't have to have chemotherapy, she did have radiotherapy. It's a very intensive treatment regimen - every day for 15 days - and she finished her treatment yesterday. She's been such a star coping with all this. Mum loves bright flowers and so I made this for her:
Stamps: Concord & 9th - Hello Wishes
Inks: Gina K - Applemint, Jelly Bean Green, Fresh Asparagus, Dusty Rose, Redhot, Tangerine Twist; Versafine Clair - Nocturne
Dies: C&9 - Simply You, Quilted Cover Plate
Accessories: White Card; SU Card - Daffodil Delight; Gems
I'm submitting this card to Never-Before-Used-Schtuff - NBUS#38 as this is the first time I've inked up the Hello Wishes floral image - so pretty!!
I used yellow card to make the base notecard - it's a top folding A2 card. I used the quilted cover plate to cut the pattern into the front of the card. I stamped the two-step floral image onto white card. I stamped the flowers first and then the leaves. I used an ink brush to add darker green ink to some of the leaves. I added darker colour to some of the flowers with a small solid image. I cut out the panel with a scallop edge die and finished the front by adding a greeting and some gems. The greeting comes from Hello Wishes, and says ' hope you're doing well', I simply cut off the word 'hope' and stamped the rest. Inside the card, I die cut another panel with the scallop edge die. I also die cut the greeting. I adhered the panel to the card base, added back the middle of the o's and e, and finished by adding a simple flower.
That's all from me today. See you all again soon.
