Unfortunately I've caught a stomach bug. I can't believe it, especially so soon after returning to work. I didn't want to take any time off sick, even more so as we're so short staffed at work, but I couldn't go in and pass it onto anyone else, besides which, I still can't face the thought of food. Hence why I am utilising this time and thought I could post another card I have made over the summer.
I made this as a friendship card for the lovely Kerry, whose blog can be found here
As usually happens with me, the finished card turned out very differently from the one I had planned. It was going to be a fairly simple card in shades of blue, but turned out as a generous & varied selection of blue elements as I found so many things I wanted to incorporate into the card!
I took my inspiration from the lovely Papermania Capsule collection papers, and used SU ink (think I used Not Quite Navy), stamps by Stampin' Up and PaperArtsy, & Papermania brads. SU punch used for scalloped edge on paper & for label tag that the bird is on.
Close up of some of the detail. The flowers were handcut - after making the card, I managed to buy the punch which will simplify things in the future.
Detail from a different angle, I really like the PaperArtsy hinge & sentiment stamps I used here.
Tfl, & for any comments you may care to leave.
