Hello, and welcome to my little crafty blog. It’s another warm weekend here in the UK, and today’s card turned out to have a very summery feel. I’ve made it as support and encouragement for a friend who’s having a procedure done next week – I thought this sentiment from the new ‘forever fern’ set from Stampin Up was ideal
The card background was inspired by an online class I did recently with the brilliant Marion Emberson from Sugar and Spice https://www.sugarandspicecrafts.co.uk/ I started by brushing Distress Inks over a piece of white cardstock, blending them with the darker shade at the bottom
I then used several of the leaf stamps from the ‘forever fern’, stamping them with Versamark and heat embossing in white.
I decided to use this week’s sketch from the Fab Friday blog challenge for the card design. http://fabfridaystampinchallenge.blogspot.com/ I was absolutely delighted to be one of the Fab Faves in their last challenge, with my thank you stencil heart card – the first time I’ve got an award!
I offset the background onto a purple card mat to bring the colours out, and mounted it on a 5×7 card blank. I finished it with another strip of purple card, with the sentiment heat embossed in white
Thanks for dropping into my blog. Wishing everyone a good week ahead – whatever you’ve got planned, you can do it!
