#790 – You Are Amazing

Hello! I made this card to send to a dear crafting friend, Sandie and now that it has long since reached her, I am sharing it! Such a charming lady filled with drive – that’s what I felt after just a few mail exchanges. And I made this card to suite that feeling I had.

I tried to make it a bright card, so, tried making it with lots of flower/leaf layering.. and I am quite happy with how it has turned out! … and I hope she liked it too!! ๐Ÿ™‚

You Are Amazing

I kept the images ready by stamping them with distress inks, misted with water. The flowers and leaves are all from Winnie & Walter In Bloom: Victoria’s Very Merry Flowers. I had shared another card which used the leftovers from this project earlier here.

Once I decided how to arrange the florals, I proceeded to the base… which took a long time.. a very long time. In the end, I die cut the pieces using Lil Inker Designs Pointelle die and used distress paints Antiqued Bronze and Tarnished Brass. I like how the texture and mix of color makes it look like wood, but still will carry some shine with it. Once dried, I adhered it directly over the card base, then adhered the flowers on it.

For the sentiment, I used stacked up die cut pieces, which I die cut using Altenew Inline Alpha dies. The other part of the sentiment is from Avery Elle Laurels, which I heat embossed with two layers of copper embossing and one layer of clear sparkle embossing.

And extravagant card in the end..

With this card, I am joining the following challenges –

  1. And IRL it looks more amazing and still has pride of place on my mantle piece. I loved how much texture there was when I got the cards and the flowers just bloomed off the card. It touched my heart to get this card from you and thank you so much for your kind words. It feels so special to me that you took the time out to make me this card and getting it just at a time when I needed a boost. I can’t thank you enough, you are a very special person. And I am over joyed you shared it with us at Calling All Sistahs-sending hugs your way xx
