Sorry for the long silence...Karneval is upon us here in Germany and it has kept us quite busy! It being our first year here we didn't know what to expect, but it has been lots of fun!
Here is the card I sent to my mom for Valentine's Day. Not a traditional heart card, this features a black-eyed susan - one of my mother's favorite flowers. I had seen these flower cards on Splitcoast using punches and knew I had to make my own.
For this card I used both the large and small oval punches (large for the chocolate chip center, small for the summer sun petals) and I sponged some more mustard ink around each of the petals to give them some dimension. I decided to make this into a square card, so the finished size was 5" square. The top layer is Certainly Celery, then Chocolate Chip, and lastly Old Olive (which is also the color of the stem.) I finished the card with a saying from the Love Matters set, "all things grow with love" and on the inside I wrote to my mom "Thanks for helping me grow!"
I've had a few gift projects this weekend so will try to upload them tomorrow if I'm able!
