I went to Joanne's on Saturday morning for a make and take session. There were a few of us around the table and we all had a very happy time indeed - chatting, chuckling, cardmaking and cookies - what's not to love!? Also there were a couple of cute babies to coo over! Joanne had designed six cards and all the supplies were in baskets so as you finished a card the basket was passed on and you received a new one to work on. Unsurprisingly, I only made five cards as I was far too busy gasbagging - as per usual!
This card was the first one I
made and actually completed on the day. The others are still awaiting
final assembly! I love this graceful flower spray image from the
Hopeful Thoughts set and the tree in the set is lovely too. I have had
the set on my wish list for a long time but it always seems to get
bumped down the list and I've not bought it yet. I really feel it's
time to add it to my collection!
The colours used for the
card are Wild Wasabi, Perfect Plum, So Saffron and Whisper White - a
very pretty combo. I inked the spray with markers and stamped on the
white panel. I punched an ornament shape, inked and stamped the spray
again and then cut off the ornament bottom to make a vase shape. The
vase was edged with Plum ink and the vase popped up. The card front was
finished off with a sentiment, a scalloped border and some Dazzling
Details was put on the flowers for a touch of sparkle.
For the inside and envelope I stamped the beautiful flower spray again.
I have my monthly card group meeting tomorrow and after packing the stuff for that this evening I plan on finishing off the rest of the make and take cards. Owen is working and I don't have choir practice tonight so after dinner I will put on my PJs, go to my craft room and get assembling!
