Popping in with a quick post today. I did manage to spend a little time in my craft room yesterday and played along with this great sketch at FreshlyMade
As the vertical element was going to be popped off the page, I didn't want to add more bulk to the card by adding an embossed or speciality paper for the middle element. I decided to use a stencil to create a pattern for that area instead. I then used my Ellen Hutson stitched dies to add a stitched detail above and below the stenciling.
Here's a closeup:
For the vertical element, I stamped two flowers from the Altenew Stunning Cosmos set and die-cut them with the matching dies.
I added a little shimmer and shine to the flowers with a gel roller:
I mounted the pink flower and stem directly onto the card base, but popped up the yellow flower to add some dimension.
A nice, bright card with spring in mind.... Mind you, looking out of our window - Spring is a long way away. Oh... and let's not talk about the weather advisory that puts us at close to -50 from Tuesday to Thursday!
I'll be back tomorrow with another card. In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
