After doing a gazillion Christmas cards and having all my Valentine's done and mailed, I'm moving on to more spring related cards.
Don't faint! This is a card I, all my myself, with my own little pencil sketched off and made today! I know, it's a minor miracle that it's one I created instead of scraplifting! LOL!
The original layout was to be done horizontally but after I'd already applied the mesh, I turned the card over and realized that my custom stamp was already on the back for a vertical layout. So, change of plans. The duplicates of this I'll do later today will definitely be done horizontally so I can add a small sentiment in the lower corner.
The blue Magic Mesh is some I bought out of the clearance rack at a LSS that's no longer in business. Plain old sheetrock mesh works just the same and is a lot cheaper. You can even color the sheetrock mesh with a marker to match your paper.
The flowers are yellow and green mica paper that Okie and I picked up at a stamping garage sale. I used my 1 1/2" SU scalloped circle punch to make them. The centers are punched with a Bitty punch from SU and the leaves are a flower punch from SU and a MS leaf punch.
This afternoon I'm going to experiment with this design, try out some different colors of flowers and backgrounds and just see what I like the best. So, there will be other photos posted later today.
This one is more what I had sketched out. I like the red mica flowers on the green background. It's a keeper!
