Happy New Year! I hope 2019 proves to be a wonderful year for everyone.
It's been a very busy 9 months. I won't bore you with details but I have neglected my blog for to long, so here goes.
Todays card is a Thank you card using Altenew's, Delicate Primrose stamp and die set. I love Primroses, they are almost always in bloom. Mine have even bloomed in mid-winter when the weather warms a bit. They are such bright and delicate little blooms and they always put a smile on my face.
This Clean and Simple card is the first I've made with this set and I love it.
First I stamped the flowers on masking paper and then used the masks to layout my pattern. I took a picture with my phone to remember the placement, then I stamped all the leaves directly on to my Neenah card stock. I used a separate piece of card stock to stamp the flowers using Altenew inks. Then I used my Delicate Primrose dies and cut them out. I adhered the red and orange flowers directly to the card front using my Xyron, then I adhered the
blue flower with dimensional adhesive.
I added a little shading of Mango Smoothie ink with my makeup brushes. I backed the 41/4" x 53/8" paper with foam and adhered to an A-2 Blue #110 card base.
I also finished the inside with a blue flower and a few leaves. I really love to incorporate something from the front of the card on the inside of the card. I think it give a nice finished look. I usually do the envelope too.
