Well I am hooked on the idea of Lilies and Lace! Actually, I’m just hooked on these Scrapandme papers I’ve discovered!! This lovely card is also from the “Aquarelles” collection.
To make this card, I used the largest die from the Heartfelt Creations Teardrop Lattice Gateway dies, to make the shaped card. Then I cut the front panel with the same die, adhered it in place, cut the teardrop lattice gateway, and adhered it on top of the Scrapandme decorative paper. The inside panel was cut using the largest of the Heartfelt Creations Scalloped border gateway die for the right hand side, and for the left hand side, I cut this image first using my old Creative Memories circle cutter, and then used the largest scalloped circle die from inside Heartfelt Creations Decorative Circle Frames die set, to place behind the patterned paper – although both pieces came from the same paper pack as everything else.
On the front of the card, I took some fabric lace and glued it down, and then placed a ribbon in the center as shown – and I clamped it for quite a while before going back to decorate with the flowers, to make sure it had dried. In fact I made all my flowers after I glued the lace and ribbon down.
For the lilies, I actually used the HFC Daffodil, and narrowed the petals a smidgen, and then put in the lovely sparkly stem you see there – I did roll the wire of the stamen in some matching ink. The daffodil, again, was made from the same set. The small blossom were cut from the smallest Classic rose dies, and I just cupped the flowers, and glued in the stamens. The ferns are from a “no name” set, and I used the HFC Dahlia large leaves to tuck under the lilies.
I think even the “Thank you” sentiment came from HFC, probably the Butterfly Dreams set – its in the one with the lacy square, and small doily, as well as the Single smaller butterfly. I’m not sure this set is available anymore, but I find lots of great sentiments for die cutting from Creative Expressions on-line at various shops – Heartfelt Creations and Graphic 45 often have sentiments in their collections as well, whether stamps, or die cuts.
And that will finish your card! I do love creating these cards, but even more, I enjoy giving them to people. Mothers Day is coming up, and I have over 50, which I will be taking over on the Saturday before, so the nurses can sign and deliver them. Wouldn’t it be great it I could make 75 next year?……that’s a lot of crafting!!
Well, thanks for stopping by, and please leave me some feedback, and share my blog to others who might be interested!
