Well, I am back after taking a brief recess from card making and blogging. I caught a nasty head cold so I took a few extra days more to just try and get over that. I am quite well on the road to recovery now though so that makes me happy. Anyway, today I made my first card in over two weeks using some new to me products and I wanted to share it with you. I thought this would work as a nice thank you card.
I used the Boho Flowers set from Gina K. Designs and stamped the images in with Versafine black ink. Then I took a white Prismacolor pencil and colored in portions of the leaves and flower with it and also around the edge of the die embossed design which is from Gina Marie Designs. The flower was die cut and popped up over the leafy flourish design. I added this kraft stamped panel to a black A2 size card base and then placed a sheet of white inside to write a personal message.
Really quite an easy card to make and this was the first time I used the Boho Flowers set which I had purchased some time ago and a new glue from Gina K. Designs which I used to add the panel to the base. It is called Connect Glue. Also new to me is the Gina Marie Designs die.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge-Something New-Gina K. Designs Boho Flowers, Gina Marie Die and Connect Glue
Mod Squad Blog Challenge-Color Throw Down
Well, I hope 2018 is off to a great start for you. Except for the head cold business so far mine is going quite well. And, the only resolution if you can call it that, is to try and keep ahead of Christmas card making again this year. It worked great for 2017 and therefore it was a lot less stressful. I even have a few extras that I can carry over to the 2018 season.
Thanks also to all who come by so faithfully to view and comment. And I thank any new comers who visit too. I love to hear from each and every one of you. Have a good day now.
