Our Bloggers challenge this week is a Mother’s Day card OR a card for a Friend. Since my Mom lives in Ky, I mailed her card a few days ago, so I made a card for a good friend. My friend is celebrating her 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2 weeks, so I made her card for this challenge.
I had fun making flowers today with my friend Nancy- I see them all over blog land lately. I wanted to try a rose out of heart shapes- I found a tutorial HERE. I altered the tutorial a tiny bit so I could use my heart shaped Nestabilities (edit to add- I did have to trim down the nestability hearts 1st and 3rd layers). (Gabi was our Guest designer at Firecracker Designs by Pamela last month- she does beautiful scrapbook pages –if you have a little time-check out her blog HERE). It was more time consuming for me than I expected, but that is OK, I wanted to try something different. I spritzed the card background and the flowers with Glimmer Mist. I added leaves from the SU bird punch from SU in Almost Artichoke. The pink is Rose Romance- my all time favorite cardstock color. I added White Gel pen around the edges of the frame, and used Whisped Frames by the Technique Junkies to finish off the card.
Stamps used are Firecracker Designs by Pamela
