This is a card I made to send to my friend that just had surgery. It almost qualifies for the Joan's Gardens challenge this week. Have you been over to check it out? Here is all you have to do: Make a pink and white card this week, and be sure you have 4 corners punched preferably with a Martha Stewart Punch. This is an easy one so hope you create a card and enter the challenge so you have a chance to win a nice prize.
My card does not qualify for the challenge because I didn't punch the 4 corners with a Martha Stewart Punch. I used one of the Heartfelt Creations stamps called "Posy Patch Swirls" for my base design. I love the flourishes that are on so many of their stamps. Instead of using the HFC die cut flowers on this one I attached some of my vellum flowers. I love the flourish behind the flowers. The stamp (which includes flowers that are below my vellum flowers) was stamped using VersaMark ink and then was white embossed. The vellum flowers and leaves were attached with glue dots.
The background piece was embossed with the Cuttlebug dotted Swiss embossing folder. A Martha Stewart punched border was added down each side. To cover the seam I added a narrow strip of darker pink card stock and added pearls. The greeting is from MTME.
Have you seen all the new Heartfelt Creations stamps and dies Joan has added to her blog today? Oh my gosh, I want them all. It was hard to make a decision on which ones to order right away, but I placed my order with Joan, and as soon as they arrive I will start making samples for you to see. I will be posting a tutorial on how to color the leaves with multiple colors so they look realistic. You can see all these new Heartfelt Creations stamps here. Joan is taking pre-orders now and the stamps will be in later this month.
All products used on this card were purchased from Joan's Gardens except the greeting stamp which is from My Time Made Easy.
