Today I have a card I made using leftovers from the online craftalong I did with friends a few weeks ago, using a tutorial from another craftalong I did with a different group of friends!
So my SU group did a team craftalong during which the lovely Sue showed us how to make a card with different layers and folds. It’s difficult to describe but it was a great project to make and I made my mother’s day card using it … but I can’t blog that yet.
Then a few weeks ago I did some online crafting with some friends using the True Love dsp and had some leftovers so decided to make a birthday card for my auntie using the papers and same colours of cardstock using up leftovers on the desk and some fresh card for the base of the card.
I love the true love dsp …. it is such fun to colour in! I chose to colour in three floral clusters and fussy cut them, and use two different floral backgrounds for the background papers.
I used Rococo Rose and Blackberry Bliss as the main colours of cardstock and coloured the images using Blackberry Bliss, petal Pink (with a touch of flirty flamingo) and cherry cobbler … I didn’t have stampin blends in the rococo rose unfortunately bit think the flowers worked well regardless.
I also used the Blackberry Bliss ribbon and the pastel pearls to finish off the card with Fancy Phrases sentiments (& Itty Bitty Greetings for one of them).
Super happy with the card and the little pops of green from the leaves also work well. Definitely going to try and do more fancy fold type cards from now on… they may be intricate to make but the end result is fabulous!
