Sorry for not posting yet this week! It has just been a busy few days! So, how are you? Everyone have a good weekend and a good week so far? As I said, it's been busy; but it’s also been productive. I spent most of the last few days making projects for the teacher’s appreciation gift I gave to my son’s teacher yesterday. I will be posting all those projects on Friday, so stay tuned!
For today, however I will be sharing a CAS card I made using Altenew's Beautiful Day stamp set. I will mail this card to my mom for Mother’s Day. This card was actually designed a lot differently in my head than how it actually turned out. In the end, I scrapped my elaborate plans and just decided to just go with a simple one flower and sentiment design.
I love layering this flower. It makes having a flower with depth and dimension so easy!! I made a chart a while ago of ink color combinations that I like with this flower and when I want to use it, I just pull out my chart and half my decision is already made for me! For this flower, I used Weathered Wood, Faded Jeans, Cool Caribbean, and Soft Navy. I stamped the flower on a piece of 110# Neenah solar white card stock. I did a bit of masking with the leaves to get the desired arrangement I wanted. For the leaves, I used Willow and New Leaf ink from SSS. I added the sentiment in “Lipstick Red” ink from SSS. I rounded the corners with the ¼ inch corner rounder; and that pretty much finishes the card.
