I’m back today with a card I created many months back for a sweet lady on the Papertrey Forum: Meghan. I actually did send this card to her months ago but never got to posting it on my blog! Meghan helped me out when I was after a US card mag. Not only did she buy me a copy and send it but she also didn’t want to be paid back! Such a super sweet girl, so I had to make her a super-sweet card to match!
I used Delightful Dahlia dies to cut out Pretty Pastels patterned paper then stamped the images from Delightful Dahlia onto them. I crumpled up the leaves and distressed with VintageTouch Tea Dye Duo to make them a bit more realistic and shaded the flowers with Copics.
The panel was created with the Giga Guidelines and Polka Dot Basics II Impression plates, with me doing a letterpress effect with the first using Sweet Blush ink, and using the reverse of the impression and inking up with VintageTouch Chamomile ink on the second. I die-cut a border using the ric-rac die before joining the panels together. Berry Sorbet Satin ribbon covers the join and then the knot was topped with a button and rhinestone. Sentiment is from Signature Greetings stamped onto Rustic Cream cardstock with Dark Chocolate ink and distressed.
I continued the theme inside with a sentiment from Big & Bold Wishes and more dahlias and leaves stamped with chamomile ink.
I know Meg loved her card and I’d love to know if you do too! Thanks for stopping by!
