Sweet friends I hope you have a fabulous day in store for you today. As promised there is a winner for the Artisan X-plorer offered on my blogaversary – name shown at the end of this post. In the meantime I have a romantic card to share today that stands in line to be used for Mothers Day but can also be used for birthday and for friendship.
I love the delicateness of the square die template I picked to fill the body of the card – Spellbinders Blooming Collection, it’s open and it’s airy and it gave me lots of room to play around as well as the feminine feel I was looking for. Next I added Spellbinders Fancy Label Tags Four and raised it with foam tape. Then I added the cut out of Spellbinders Silhouette until I realized that the negative of the Silhouette die looked much better – I cut it out with Spellbinders Classic Ovals SM and mounted it with foam tape. To finish, I popped on a the “with love” sentiment from Spellbinders Sentiments Three.
I’ve now learned that when I sit down to make flowers, I should make lots of them at one sitting. Yes, it seems hard to find the time, but that day usually ends up being one where nothing else is falling together and I feel creatively exhausted. So, from the stash I created a week or two ago, came these flowers made using Spellbinders Urban Blooms.
