My first card is a gatefold and I've overlapped the cut out stamped images so that it looks balanced when it is standing up ! I popped some Beau Chateau DSP on the inside to give a pretty background and used the eyelet border punch for the two edges. I also stamped just the flower heads in a lighter ink to the main image onto the main card.
Both cards are A5 and this one is a standard fold which I usually do; I'm not very adventurous !!! I have to say that I find small cards more difficult to design as I am more used to working on a bigger canvas, so these come together more quickly for me . I used to do a lot of watercolour painting (flowers !!!) and before my daughter came on the scene I ran my own design business making bespoke wedding gowns in silk! I loved this as working with brides and their Mums was lovely and so rewarding and I used to go along to the weddings to arrange the gown for the photographer! Happy days !!!
Anyway I digress ! Back to my cards ! I have added some first edition speciality DSP to this card and again stamped the background. I think Sweet Floral would work well stamped in a solid ink onto some watercolour paper and then double mounted in a frame for home decor as it is a very strong image !
I think I'm getting back to where I was before with my crafting; that is before all the Christmas chocolate fudged my brain and made me think I couldn't craft anymore !!!
Valentines next, I think and maybe some tags to get me used to working on a small scale again !
I appreciate the time you have taken to drop by; do come again !
