A Friendly Card

Things are still hectic here as we deal with the aftermath of the  mega-leak (which is thankfully now fixed) and my moving into the new craftroom has been stalled ever so slightly by a couple of small practical considerations...that we had not considered! But while it is not fully operational yet, it is still possible to work on a corner of the standing workstation..which is what I did when I needed to make a card to pop in with something I was sending off to a friend.

I made the background by using a couple of  ink pads direct to whisper white card. The sentiment on the front was from the Feel Goods stamp set. I stamped the butterfly (Best of Butterflies set) in black ink onto the card front,  and again onto vellum and onto the panel for the inside of the card too. I hand-cut the vellum butterfly and fixed it over the stamped image on the card front using sticky strip, with a line of small coloured gems  over the tape line. (gems not SU but they were sitting on top of a box on the counter so I grabbed them for quickness) The fake stitching was done by hand using a fine line black marker and this was repeated on the inside panel too. The stamped greeting inside the card is from the new Perfect Pennants stamp set which is in the Spring Summer seasonal catalogue. Simple and easy card to make but I was quite pleased with the end result.

Hopefully we will have fully considered the outstanding craft room considerations by this week and I will be able to get things fully set up and operational so I can start making lots of pretties again very soon

Until next time, take care
