Hello, Sweet Friend

I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to post today as it has been a busy week traveling and visiting family.  Before we left, I started today’s card and was able to finish it up today.

The flowers are from the new stamp set Birthday Blossoms.  As soon as I saw it in the catalog I knew I wanted it because I felt they would be just perfect for coloring!  I stamped the flowers and leaves with Memento Ink and colored them with my Copics.  I could have used the Pansy Punch to cut out my flowers but I chose to cut them with my paper snips.  We don’t have a punch for the leaves so they were cut out too.

I had a vision for the finished card but when I started to put it together, I wasn’t happy with it.  I had a different type of fold so that my flowers would hang off of the paper.  When you use alcohol ink markers, it tends to bleed through to the back of the paper.  Perfectly normal but I didn’t want to see the backs when the card was opened.  So, I carefully peeled the flowers off of my cardstock (I used Tombow) but they were still attached as a group.  I ended up placing a few Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back and placed it on my card. I felt a little sick when I started peeling them off the paper and was so relieved when nothing ripped.  Whew!!

I finished it off with a sentiment from Six Sided Sampler stamped with Rich Razzzleberry.
