It's been a rough week last week, one of my back molars was giving me grief. Lots of pain, I ended up having a root canal done yesterday. So much better today, no more pain although my jaw is a bit stiff this morning because of the 5 needles I was given, and for keeping my mouth open for an hour, but as the day went on it was feeling better.
I was going to share my 3rd Fathers Day card I made, but thought I would change it up, you're probably board looking at 'guy' cards, I'm sure something pretty and feminine would be more pleasing to the eye. I had a request from a friend at work for a 40th anniversary card for another co-worker. Here is the end result:
I wanted to put their name on the front somehow, so I computer generated the sentiment then cut it out using a MFT flagstax die, then sponged the edges using Adirondak Lights - Willow. I wanted a soft muted background so it wouldn't take away form the flowers so found these papers from Kaisercraft - On This Day.
For the leaves I used my new Memory Box die - Massa Leaf frame - cut from a piece of scrap from Basic Grey - perhaps. I love the variation of the colour of the leaves. I then cut a circle from the bottom piece of dp - since I was layering other papers on top no one would see the circle cut out and I didn't want to cut into another piece - (I tell you I am a paper hoarder!) Adhered this over the leaves, I then used one of the punch out circles from back of the paper pack on top of the circle then layered it with a Memory Box - Chochitlan wreath.
I popped the sentiment up using pop up foam squares by Scotch (love these, they squish down, so when mailing it makes it much easier). I then proceeded by adding an assortment of flowers - most were purchased from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Finished off with a little wooded heart from Studio Calico, glitter on the flowers and pearls. Do you think I put too many pearls on the card?
Hope you enjoyed my creation today. Thanks for stopping in. Have a wonderful day.
I will share my 3rd fathers day card next - image from Art Impressions.
