Dear friends, hope you are keeping well.
I want to thank you for visiting my blog and taking time to leave me lovely comments.
Today, I have a card to share with you, a card I made for a friend who just had an operation.
When I was going through my stamp collections, I realized I have neglected my Penny Black stamps.
I chose one of the teddies in the Teddy & Company collection for this card.
For the layout, I followed CLP September sketch.
I always find making a masculine card very challenging.
For this card, I had to limit myself the amount of flowers and blings to use.
The card measures 5.5" x 5.5". DP is from Basic Grey.
Dies used are Magnolia, Memory Box, Spellbinder, and Sizzix.
Sentiment is from StampinUp.
I stamped the image with Archival Ink and water colored with TH Distressing Inks.
I must say water coloring with inks is very addicting.
I do know I need more practice :^)
I top stitched the DP and distressed the paper edges.
I added some die cut paper buttons, a piece of jute ribbon,
more die cuts, and 3 small flowers and pearls to dress up the card.
I used the same DP to decorate the inside.
Thanks again for stopping by. Have a nice day!
I wish to enter this card in the following challenges:
