Hope you are well. This is just a quick post today. Just recently I've started really looking at tons of new blogs I'd never visited before and honestly my head is buzzing with loads of things I want to try. I say it quite often - I am just amazed at the variety of craft stuff out there for sale not just in the UK but elsewhere and there's an awful lot of goodies I fancy lol. I am in awe at the cards and creations people continue to achieve, I had no idea until I started crafting this world even existed!
Right enough of that now to my card...I am really quite pleased with this card. I wanted a simple card for my sons gf who has had her tonsils out in the last few days. I didn't want get well soon as that didn't seem like the right wording. While I've been doing my blog hopping I have seen loads of CAS cards. Now I think you all know I'm not really a CAS girl but I do however love this type of card. This stamp set was actually a freebie made by Clearly Besotted and came with a mag about a year ago and last time I used it to make a card for a friend - I'll post a pic of that card at the end.
Now I think you'll agree that it just looks totally different in black and white. I stamped the leaves in black versafine ink. I also stamped the butterflies onto this piece of card along with the wording which is from Altenew. I stamped the fuchsia flowers and cut these and the larger butterfly out with a matching die set (a new addition to my stash since last year when the flowers were cut out by hand - unfortunately scissors and my tremor these days are just not good friends so I've had to think of an alternative lol). I added these at different heights on foam pads. This was backed onto black and a few gems added to the flowers and butterflies. I must admit this was a lovely simple card to make - I'll be making a few more like this...Lea X
