Painted Petals Mother’s day Cards

After a very late night (or should I say early morning) trying to upload my first video I just had to have another go. Painted Petals has now been published on YouTube. Just gathering my thoughts and thinking of original ideas gave me a headache! But PERSEVERANCE they say. So after a few cups of tea and some glases of water the ideas started to come together. “Use some retiring products” a little voice kept telling me. “If you don’t they will sit on the shelf, left to gather dust in the future.” No they won’t be forgotten, just pushed aside as the new catalogue gets closer and closer. Can’t wait.

So out came the Four Frames Stamp Set, which I wanted to use as a centre piece for the card.

I worked from the centre out, feathering stamps around the image as if an extended layer. This was then adhered to cardstock, DSP and a card base. Check out the video to watch how.

I also did a slightly different version using embossed card stock instead of DSP paper as the base. It also has more ‘white space’ which I think opens up the card.
