This is the forth card I have made with the adorable Sweet Blossom from Wee stamps, she maybe an oldie but certainly a top goodie! You can find her in the digi store here, or at Whimsy Stamps in rubber. I have coloured Sweet Blossom with my Copics then inked the edge with Pumice Stone DI before mounting on this C6 tent fold card.
The background paper is from Nitwits Always and Forever Too pack and is printed out A4 size, which I think looses some of the definition .. .. I am still getting to grips with printing and trying to get the colours to appear the way I think they should. Thankfully pinks seem to be ok, but gold colours are turning out olive green! Anyway, it's a simple card and simply embellished with punched flowers and a butterfly, the gross grain ribbon and a stamped text on a little label diecut from Marianne LR0240.
And I've decorated the inside again .. .. simply with white card, a strip of the same paper, a little stamped text and a spray diecut from LR0151 (same as on the front of the card). I've added some tiny pink gems to tie in with the front, they are fairly flat so shouldn't interfere with closing.
A couple of challenges I can enter, the Cutie Pie challenge is for pretty pastel colours, and Addicted to Stamps are looking for touches of Kraft - I have my base card, one of the scallop circle mats and the text mat all done with kraft card. I was going to post this card yesterday but couldn't get the internet to play long enough to do it .. .. fingers crossed it works today as I have something new and exciting to share with you this evening!
