Well, I surprised myself and found time to stamp already this weekend! I kind of thought I wouldn’t be adding a card for a few days, but here I am – so thanks for stopping by.
The unusual color combination is due to the flowers that I used. They were sent to me from Thailand. They came with wire posts which I broke off, and then filed the bottoms down flat. The flowers themselves are kind of porcelain, or something – I’m not sure what. But I thought they were very pretty and I’m happy that I finally used them!
The stems are stamped by inking just some of the stems and leaves from Close as a Memory with Mellow Moss on shimmery white paper. I cut and embossed the rectangle with a Rectangle Nestability. The matting is simply cut with my paper trimmer – Pacific Point and Lavender Lace. I embossed the bottom of the card with Dotted Swiss, added scored lines with my Scor-Pal, and added a strip of Pacific Point embossed with a Cuttlebug border folder. I thought I could make a card without Dotted Swiss, but I couldn’t! I had to use Dotted Swiss to coordinate with the dotted ribbon. The sentiment is from Sincere Salutations. The card base is Papertrey Ink Stampers Select White.
I have added a close-up of the flowers. Definitely not a “mailable” card – at least not without a padded envelope.
Thanks so much for looking, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!
