I had done some cards that were mailed out, and since I know they've been received now, I'd like to share them this evening. These were sent to some of my VIP's - whom I feel so blessed to have met in Blogland.
The flower pots image is a Northwoods stamp, colored with copics, WoS and die cut with a Sizzix die. In #1 card, the background was created with Dylusions & other spray products, then after drying well, embossed with a folder. A S/B die created the lacey mat, and the sentiment was stamped and cut from the same design paper.
On the 2nd flower pot card, I used design paper, the reverse of the same paper for the MS border punching. The image was colored with copics, WoStella and just a tiny amount of DI distressing on the edges. I kept this card simple as it was international mailing, so not too many layers on it.
The center card: The PB Wildflower cling image was stamped with Versamark, heat embossed with Sparkle n Sprinkle Belgian Crème EP. Then sponged Distress Inks on #98 Canson Mixed Media paper, spritzed with a gold spray, Once this dried, the embossed area was wiped off with a baby wipe. The faux mat was cut from a snippet of another sprayed paper, that has some gleam to it. A script background stamp was inked with Memento Desert Sand, stamped on the card base and the sentiment stamped with a Colorbox Fluid Chalk Ink that sort of matched the blue of the Distress Ink. I don't usually have success in trying to stamp with Distress Inks. They always seem 'too dry' to me to stamp, even though I've just reinked the pad.
So I hope you've enjoyed these cards. I had fun making them, and I hope the recipients enjoyed receiving them. They expressed some deep appreciation on my part for some lovely folks. That's it for tonight. Catch you later. Hugs & have a wonderful Wednesday.
