Angela came for a visit a couple of weeks ago to have a look at some of the cards I'd made and she asked if she and Janet could come to make a card with a floral theme. Well, as florals are my favourite (as well as butterflies!), of course I said yes to that request! So here is the card they will make. I chose Field Flowers as it's one of my favourite stamp sets - two-step flower stamping and some fussy cutting equals one very happy stamper - in my book anyway, I hope Angela and Janet will feel the same! Obviously two-step stamping requires the use of the Stamp-a-ma-jig which can be tricky for newer card makers so they may not share the same level of enthusiasm - but I'll work on that LOL!
I made the A6 card base with Blushing Bride CS, layered the white panel onto Primrose Petals and Early Espresso mats and added some Primrose Petals stitched ribbon. I think this could turn into one of my favourite colour combos! I stamped the stem in Espresso, the solid flower in Blushing Bride and the outline flower in Primrose Petals. I stamped one flower direct to the card and stamped a second one on a separate piece of CS which I fussy cut and popped up. I stamped the butterfly onto Blushing Bride CS, added colour with inks and a blender pen, punched the butterfly and glued it to the card after stamping the antennae.
I've also decorated the inside of the card and the envelope - I'm hoping Angela and Janet will want to do that too, although I'll leave that up to them!
