TRULY SCRUMPTIOUS: CHALLENGE 3
I wanted to make two Mother's day cards and so far have only got one finished, so it looks like a long night!
I really liked the sketch on this week's Truly Scrumptious blog challenge and it fitted in perfectly with the theme I had in mind.
Ingredients: Basic Grey DP Paper - Sugared, plain cardstock - The Paper Mill, Ribbon - from my stash, Charms - Ebay, Flowers - Prima, Brads - Basic Grey - Sugared, Crystals on Flowers - from my stash
I have had the Magnolia image (thanks Bev) coloured and the chair coloured for ages ready for a challenge so apologies I can't remember the colours of the distress inks used. The shimmery bits are cosmic shimmer - quite sweet I thought!
I layered the background using Basic Grey 'Sugared' papers pad (I love these) and co-ordinating cardstock from my stash. I decided to use a slight marble effect base card for a change (I don't know why, just felt like something different other than white!).
All of the shapes have been cut using my cricut and I must give a huge thank you to Narelle, for helping me get my .cut file to weld the rectangle to the scallop edge ! Not an easy task I must say, but not for Narelle. If you have a cricut you must look at her blog, she is a very talented lady and has restored my faith in my cricut. I was beginning to think it was a pile of junk! lol
All the shapes are from either Accent Essentials or Plantinschoolbook cartridges. It took absolutely ages to get the right shapes for the inside to line up with the computer generated sentiments, but now I have a template for any further ones I want to create!
I tried to keep the theme of the front running through the card to the inside sentiments and the flower detail.
Here is the back view of the card with my new personalised stamp ! How posh!
And just a final peek at the sentiment and a special wish from me to all the mum's to have a wonderful mothers day on Sunday and make sure you let them all pamper you for a change!
Kati is making me a meal ! Should be lovely (just dread the washing-up and tidying!)
Thanks for looking and putting up with my waffle!
