Feeling a bit pale

Hello crafting friends!

When someone's feeling a bit meh, maybe they need a calm, peaceful card to help them feel better. That's what I made today! Come and see:


It's VERY calm! If you were lurking about here yesterday, you may spot the new embossing folder that somehow found its way into my basket when I was shopping for something else! Yep, it doesn't take me long to crack on with the new stuff! I do like its subtlety :)


I gave it a bit of extra interest by cutting it out with one of my Heffy Doodle stitched rectangle dies. The sentiment is a lovely big bold one from MFT's All Occasion Sentiments. It usually runs horizontally, but I used my stamping platform to position the words vertically, cleaning the stamp carefully and repositioning for each word.


I framed my sentiment with stamped and fussy cut flower sprays from Clearly Besotted's beautiful Blossoms In Bloom. Two shades of white card stock were used and tiny, pearl-centred, punched vellum flowers added for extra detail.

CHALLENGES
It's taken me a long time, but I've finally come up with something for the Wonderfully White theme at The Rainbow Card Challenge!



AND IN OTHER NEWS
I might have to give myself this card as I'm feeling a bit rubbish! Nothing serious, just January blues kind of rubbish. Any suggestions? I might have to resort to chocolate!

Hugs,

  1. A Beautiful card Vicky, great idea to clean and stamp again, I would have cut the stamp up, then probably lost one piece of it LOL. Love the embossing folder and the white. Hope you're feeling better, chocolate is a great healer LOL.

    1. I did toy with the idea of cutting it up but didn't think I'd risk it! Thank you for your wisdom about chocolate. Armed with this knowledge I'll go straight out and get some - for medicinal purposes obviously! x
