I began by die cutting a base for the design using Spellbinders "Cascading Grace" dies. I die cut the decorative panel layer out of cardstock and the back base layer out of vellum. I love the addition of vellum...it adds so much to the design.
My intent for this design was not to be a regular card, but more of a "plaque" with a stand on the back so that it can be placed anywhere in the hospital room or attached to a bulletin board.
Here's the stand on the back. I will add a special message beneath the stand.
I added a bit of texture to the front of the design using Studio 490 Embossing Paste and Prima's "Lattice" stencil.
Next up: Altenew Vintage Flowers stamps and dies. I stamped the roses and leaves with the following Tim Holtz Distress inks: Spun Sugar, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick, Shabby Shutters, and Bundled Sage. The Altenew dies were just perfect for cutting the shapes...makes life so easy and the edges look so clean. I used Thermoweb 3D Foam Strips to pop up the flowers, leaves, and sentiment panel.
The sentiment is from Stamp Simply's Clear "Blessings/Beatitudes 1" set, stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink. I used a JustRite Antique Tags One die to cut out the sentiment.
This should mail easily and hopefully bring a bit of
sunshine to my mother's day.
