A friend of mine is recovering from surgery and I wanted to send her a cheery card.
The stamps are from Stampin Up, the stems were hand drawn, the ink is Hero Arts, and the twine was a gift. I often struggle with placement of moveable items on my card fronts. I finally after 15 minutes of pushing these flowers around got the arrangement I was happy with.
Now the big question...could I duplicate it...take a photo maybe? Nope. I placed a piece of card stock on top of it and flipped the card with the blooms on it upside down. I removed the cardstock carefully so none of my punched blossoms moved. Then I used several long strips of sticky tape across the backs, placed carefully so they maintained their arrangement. Next I peeled the backer off and Voila, I was able to set it down on my card front in the same arrangement.
I added the twine bow with glossy accents, and decorated the inside of the card with flowers and a feel better sentiment. The flower centers also have a touch of glitz from a wink of stella pen.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
