Good Morning blog friends!
After yesterday's rather epic post, a brief one today as very soon I have to head off to work! I made this card for a commission and in view of the still rather dismal weather we are still experiencing, I thought I would share it today as it's a rather 'sunny' card and might help cheer us up!
This is an 8x8 card, I needed not to make it too 'weighty' as it had to be posted, so I restrained myself from my usual rather '3D' embellishing (if it had been a true 'Carole' card the flower would have been very different!). I also didn't have a lot of time to make it, so it needed to be a 'quick' make.
However, sometimes keeping it simple is the good, so this is what I did here: all the motifs are from Parisian Accents (Spellbinders). I stamped Tatty Button and coloured her with Promarkers, then I die cut using a Spellbinders Scalloped Ovals die. The flower is made with paper from stash, using a scalloped circle punch. I could have added a few layers, but the flower is large and Tatty is small, it could well have devoured her! I hadn't used my Tatty Button stamps for a while, so it was nice to revisit!
I spent yesterday afternoon working on my design team card for the new Emergency Crafters challenge which starts at the end of the week and it was one of those occasions where I just couldn't get it as I wanted..got there in the end though and it will be revealed on Friday!
Have a good Monday, whatever you are doing! Thanks for stopping by,
