Here is another cut from the Freshly Picked cartridge. I used it to make Mother's Day cards. I think it would also make cute birthday cards or any sort I'm thinking of you card. Here is the rough draft.
After I decided I liked how it went together, I cut out a bunch!!
I used my Gypsy to weld two shadow pieces together for the card base.
All other layers that I cut are shown above.
The inside of the rough draft.
The first two pieces I adhered together were these two.
I cut this layer out of different patterned papers. I wanted to see how both would look!
I like them both. I do think I like one more than the other. How about you?
I inked around the edges of most layers to add some dimension/depth.
Added the flowers.
I did use foam dots between layers to give it even more depth/dimension.
These ones are waiting to be attached to the card base.
Attached to the card base and with sentiment.
Waiting for outside sentiment.
A different outside sentiment.
Here's a peek at all 4 done with their envelopes.
I ended up having to make envelopes for these cards because the envelopes I had on hand
were 1/4 inch too small. I will do an envelope post all by itself.
I do love the effect of the coordinating envelopes though.
Most of the cards had the sentiment seen above.
I inked around the edges of this layer with ink that matched the flowers on the front of the card.
As always, I added a little stamp to the back of my envelope.
I always sign my cards and add some sort of fun stamp to the back of them too.
I think these cards turned out fantastic. The pictures truly don't do them justice.
I have lots I want to share so lets hope things are settling down a little bit and I can share and catch up with all of you. Not only have I neglected my blog, I've neglected all yours too. I'm very sorry.
I hope all your projects are going well!
Thanks for stopping by!
