Last weekend the Nashville are got hit with some strong storms. There were tornado watches (something I will never get used to), a hard driving rain and then 50-60 mph winds. We were ok but my son and his family lost power early during the storm and it stayed off for a couple of days. Lucky for us, they decided to come stay with us for the weekend. We had a lot of fun crafting, playing minature golf and just hanging out. Maybe I should wish for thier power to go out more often (just kidding, Tara). Rob is collecting paintings done by our grandchildren for his office. Emory, Maddie and Nolan did a great job on their’s. When it is all done, I will share photos.
Today’s card is a fairly simple one to make. I first used a 3..5″ x 4.25″ piece of Evening Evergreen card stock with the Stitched Greenery die. I love how this die just cuts little dots that form leaves. It is a great way to add a subtle background to a card. I backed it with a 3.75″ x 4.75″ piece of Basic White card stock and a Soft Succulent card base.
Next, I stamped the flower from the stamp set called Hand-Penned Flowers using Evening Evergreen ink. I cut it out using the coordinating Penned Flowers dies and then colored it using the Balmy Blue and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends. I stamped the sentiment in Evening Evergreen ink and cut that out using one of the Stylish Shapes dies. I adhered that to the card using Dimensionals. Lastly, I added some Gold Adhesive Backed Swirls (retired).
