April, my son's sweet girlfriend wanted me to make her Mom a Birthday card. Well, when they were visiting the other day, April & I sat down & I taught her how to create her OWN card! Here is April, so proud of her 1st card of many I am sure :) She made her card with so much love & gave it a Vintagey look! April used this gorgeous orange / rust colored K&Company DP for her background.
To make April's BIG blossom, she inked up the SU French Script stamp with SU Close to Cocoa ink & stamped the image on SU Natural Ivory cs. Using the Spellbinders Blossom die she create the blossom. To give it a Vintagey look, she crinkled it up in her hands then fastened it to her card with a pearly brad from my stash. Inking up a PTI Damask Designs image with SU River Rock ink, she stamped her leaves then roughed up the edges with a distressing tool & repeated the crinkle technique :) April did such an amazing job & I am sooo proud of her! I think I have a new stamping partner :)
My dearest husband has to have a tooth pulled on Monday :( YIKES!!! He has a cracked Wisdom tooth that is extremely painful. For sketch inspiration, I used this week's awesome sketch provided by Card Positioning Systems, CPS138.
Here is my Vintagey Love card:
To create this BIG blossom, I inked up the SU French Script stamp with SU Chocolate Chip ink then ripped various size circles. To add a lil' more character to the flower, using a sponge dauber, I sponged a lil' SU Close to Cocoa ink around the edges.
