Welcome to my crafty blog and a birthday card in Christmas colours! I’ve used Julie Hickey’s ‘sent with love’ stamp as the focal point for this, inspired by the current theme at Festive Friday and the colours from TGIF challenges
I started with the background, embossing a square of white card with the retired ‘pinewood planks’ folder from Stampin’ Up! which I then attached to a 6×6 card blank.
I stamped the enevlope of flowers onto a spare piece of card and coloured it with my Stampin’ Up! Write pens (poppy parade, granny apple green & evening evergreen), which were the nearest I had to the challenge colours. I used a SU blender pen as well, so I could get shading with the marker pens. After shading around the flowers with a pencil, I fussy cut the image and attached it to the card front, using a scrap bit of card on the back to lift it slightly.
I added the sentiment from Julie’s ‘daisy blooms’ set and finished with a few ‘evening evergreen’ resin dots.
I did a final check to make sure I’d incorporated at least 3 items from Festive Friday’s list and here’s what I had: pen (as I used the Write markers for shading), hello sentiment (which is also in script style), an envelope and some embossing. Job done!
