I promised that I will show you a card set I made for my friends. I am struggling with Hungarian sentiments, I have only a few stamps and printing them is not my preferred way as I love the flexibility a stamp gives. Finally I have found some basics for mother’s day and birthday wishes, and I wanted to make a set of cards. This is a group photo:
I started with stamping the Clearly Besotted Miniature florals on Bristol smooth cardstock, and coloured them with Zig clean colour real brush markers. I helped the blending of the shading with a Wink of Stella glitter pen, I love the delicate shine I get like this. When they were dry, I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
For each card I chose matching coloured cardstock and adhered the mat to a white card base. Then I die cut a large stitched rectangle (SSS) from cream cardstock and cut a window (MFT die). I chose different sentiments in Hungarian and heat embossed them with gold/silver and rose gold embossing powders.
I also chose coordinating patterned paper (Lawn Fawn) for each flower and glued that piece on the mat where the window would be.
I used a thin 3D foam tape to adhere the frames and to pop the flowers in the windows.
On some cards I used sequins, on some I used tiny pearls. On others I simply added a bit more sparkle and glossy accent to emphasize some details.
All together I made 7 cards, but I could easily make 15 even. I love the simplicity of the design and that I can mix and match the sentiment to fit any occasion.
I made only one card in English, but this is my favourite 🙂
I will submit this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Showers and/or flowers.
Come back soon again for more inspiration if you liked my cards,
Have a nice evening!
