So this weekend has been busy … working! Yes I had a day off work on Friday but because of being poorly the week before I had so much to catch up on so I chose to work this weekend. Not full days but a few hours each day to get caught up a little on what I had missed with being ill.
But I did manage to do a bit of crafting too and made this card.
It was made in stages usually in 10 minute sessions and in some cases grabbing hits already die cut etc to build it up.
It started with the background I had actually started on Thursday using distress oxides and the Peace and Joy stamps.
I then chose to add some wreaths to it but to make it into a pretty birthday card rather than a Christmas card.
I die cut two wreathes from white and offset them to fill out the foliage a little. Then I chose flowers that had already been die cut from scraps and some embellishment flowers too.
I used the sentiment die cuts I had done whilst poorly and stacked them up for dimension. I inked the shadow layer as wanted it to blend but also give some definition between the word and the background.
I chose a die cut bow from another set of scrap die cuts I had. Again I stacked this for dimension.
I added the little Happy stamp from the Peace and Joy and then raised the whole panel up on foam before adding it to the patterned paper (leftover from making James’ card I shared on my blog on Friday).
Perfect for a 7×7 spring coloured card.
