Flowers for more than Valentine’s Day!
Hello friends! A six-week break from all but the essentials (like filling shop orders!) has been so relaxing, but now I’m ready to get back to work 🙂 During January, we spent a few days in Kiama for our wedding anniversary and yes, it looked like this most of the time!!
I’ve also used the stamps and dies from the Hand-Penned Petals Bundle:
The floral images are beautifully drawn and the coordinating fill stamps give my design an effortless watercoloured look:
Cutting the flowers out with the coordinating die creates a bouquet of flowers:
After hours of stamping and die-cutting …
I had more than 30 bouquets- so pretty!
The Brick and Mortar embossing folder gives a great background for the flowers:
When cardstock is embossed heavily like this, I use 12mm double-sided adhesive for attaching the layer to the card base rather than 6mm:
If you look closely, you should see that the flowers have a little sparkle thanks to Crystalina KindyGlitz (a few different craft shops stock this):
I’ve added LOTS of adhesive foam dots to the back of the bouquets so they don’t fall off the brick embossing!
For my ‘sort -of-Valentines-Day-card’ for Paul, I’ve added a cute frog and a more general sentiment:
And here’s a closeup of the card:
MEANWHILE … a possum seems to have been enjoying our ripe tomatoes so Paul’s started picking them while they’re green:
Thanks so much for visiting me today; it’s always lovely to have you here 🙂 If you have any questions please ask and I hope this has given you a little inspiration! Megan xo
