Hello … bonjour … hope your week is starting well! Today I have a couple of cards to share, the first of which is going to be joining in some current challenges (see below). The second, which is similar, is a bonus … and was fun to make look slightly different, even though the basic design and main supplies were the same. Here’s the first …
The leaves and flowers were die cut from coloured cardstock … I sponged over Distress Ink to give them depth … and used a white gel pen to add definition and highlights. They’re arranged on various levels of foam dots on a die cut striped pp panel, which had been adhered flat to the card base. The sentiment is from Simon … all the die cuts are from Concord & 9th.
Here’s my bonus card …
I dropped the design from the upper third to the lower third of the card … used the same floral and leafy die cuts, this time in yellow with black detailing (also sponged with Distress Ink) … and cut a banner from the same striped pp. The sentiment, from Simon, was stamped onto a foam mounted banner that was trimmed to mimic the pp strip. Voilà … similar … though just a little different … I like them both equally … d’you have a favourite?
I’m joining in the fun at …
