Hello friends! Are you all ready for Christmas? I got all of my cards in the mail and I have one parcel to send up to my littles in Prince George. We will be sending it through the courier with my hubby's office so it will definitely be there before Christmas. I wish we were able to be together but that is not an option this year.
Today's card is for a friend and former coworker who just retired. I am so happy for her!
I started with a Soft Succulent card base. On top of that I added a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock at an angle. I then added a piece of DSP from the Harvest Meadow DSP pack at the opposite angle.
On a piece of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the larger flower image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set using Tuxedo Black Memento ink. I used my Stampin' Blends to colour in the flower. I used Soft Succulent for the stem and leaves and Flirty Flamingo and So Saffron for the flowers. After I had coloured my flower image I decided that it looked too plain. I stamped the flower image on a piece of computer paper and cut it out. I laid this over top of my coloured image and stamped over top of it. I stamped the script image in Sahara Sand ink that I stamped off twice and then I stamped the dots using Soft Succulent ink stamped off once.
I added some Stampin' Seal to the back of my stamped image and added some Linen Thread in a messy loop. I secured the Linen Thread on the back using some scotch tape. I then added dimensionals and attached this piece to my card front.
I stamped my sentiment on a strip of Basic White cardstock. The sentiment is from A Grand Kid stamp set. After I stamped my sentiment, I used my paper snips to cut a banner into both edges. I then added the sentiment to my flower piece using dimensionals.
What I used for today's card:
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed this card. I'm sure it will bring joy to my friend. She has been looking forward to retirement for a while.
Stay well and keep creating!
