Today's card was made for our neighbours across the street. They moved in when our kids were still in elementary school. Now, all of the kids are grown up and married with their own children. They have been amazing neighbours but they have just sold their house and are moving away. They want to move to a smaller town since Kelowna is getting so big and busy. I don't blame them for that but I still can't leave Kelowna.
I had to use the Dainty Delight Bundle again. I love this set and I really hope it carries over into the annual catalogue this year. I started by stamping the flower image onto a piece of Shimmery White cardstock using Black Staz On ink. I used the corresponding die to cut it out. I then used my Water Painter and ink pads to colour the image. I used Granny Apple Green for the leaves and Petal Pink for the flowers. I added Daffodil Delight to the centers of the larger flowers.
I added my flower image to an oval that I cut out of a piece of Vellum. I used the larger oval from the Framed Florets Dies set. I added this to a piece of Basic White cardstock that I embossed using the new Cane Weave 3D Embossing Folder. I added the embossed piece to a card base of Petal Pink cardstock.
On a small strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped my sentiment using Tuxedo Black Memento ink. I used this ink because the stamp I used, Friends are Like Seashells, is a photopolymer stamp and I don't like to use Staz On ink on photopolymer stamps. It makes the stamps really sticky and gooey so I don't imagine it is very good for them. I cut a banner cut into both sides of my sentiment piece and then added it to the front of my card using dimensionals.
To complete the card, I added a few Chanpagne Rhinestones. I hope our neighbours like this card. We are really going to miss them. I wish them all the best in their new place!
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed this card.
Stay well and keep creating!
