It’s been a while since my last blog post but I have been a little busy lately. On May 17th our beautiful baby Annika was born! Yep, suddenly I am a mom and life is a lot different. Annika is such a sweet baby and gives us a lot of love. We are very proud parents! Between the feeding, diaper changes and all the rest that being a mom involves I managed to create a card today. The weather here in Banff has been so nice lately so I wanted to create a card with lots of flowers and colors for summer. I used the Flowers in Frame Peel-Offs, Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter and the Katie Flourish Frame Edges. A simple card but fun to create!
The technique that I used for coloring the Peel-Offs is the technique that I use a lot here on my blog. I colored on top of the Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter. I like to use Copic markers but any other alcohol marker with a softer tip will work. If you’re new to this technique, watch this video by Els HERE.
For the card base I used an aqua colored cardstock that I cut 5.5″ x 8.5″, scored at 4.25″ and folded in half. I then cute 2 sets of the Katie Flourish Frame Edges from green cardstock backed with double-sided adhesive. I started with adhering one long edge and then worked my way around the outside frame of the card front. I cut a small piece of pink cardstock for my sentiment and adhered this to the right top corner using foam adhesive.
It was nice to be back in my craft room and be creative. I hope you find some time to be creative too!
Have a nice day!
