Hello everyone, happy FRIDAY!! This week has seemed very long to me - probably because of the election - and I am looking forward to the weekend. But first, I have an all-purpose card to share with you.
I used Spellbinder floral die cuts and Heartfelt Creations stamps to create this card. I began by stamping the background stamp image in medium brown ink. Next I used the Spellbinder flower dies and cut the lose flowers on top of the card.
Using my Close To My Heart alcohol ink markers, I colored all of the stamped image and then I cut the lose flowers. I added a bit of Stickles to the lose flowers. Using glue, I attached the lose flowers over the same flowers in the stamped image - created a 3-D effect.
I matted the stamped image onto black cardstock and then attached that to the front of a white card. I then added the lace and gem piece (which I snagged on sale!!) to the bottom front of the card. I finished the card by adding gems to the flower centers and a few doodles to the stems.
The reason I called this an all-purpose card is that I did not stamp a sentiment on the front or inside the card. I purposefully left it blank so that I can match the sentiment to the occasion for which I use the card. This could be a birthday card, a thank you card, or a thinking of you card. But until I decide, I left it blank.
Thank you for stopping by Busy with the Cricky today. I hope you all have a restfully and happy weekend!
