Loving Wishes

Good Morning
Happy to be sharing this card with you today.
If you have read my past posts, I have been creating lots of baby cards for someone since they are so difficult to fin for Grandparents and Great- Grandparents.  The Dollar Store cards just didn't cut it for her.

So here's what I did to create my card.
  • I began with a piece of heavy white cardstock.  I laid down one of the Marvelous Heart Masks from A Colorful Life Designs and secured that with some low tack tape.  
  • Next, I positioned the Groovy Flowers mask also from ACLD right over the mask.  Starting at the top, I rubbed on some Worn Lipstick with my Blending Brushes, then some Wild Honey and then finally some Rusty Hinge at the bottom.  A new colour combo for me but I really liked the look when finished.
  • Leaving the mask and stencil in place, I stamped over it with the Friends text stamp inked with some Rusty Hinge.  It gave some nice interest to my background.
  • Before removing the masks, I splattered with my white Posca pen.

  • I cut another piece of heavy cardstock, and dry embossed it with the Dots eb folder in my Cuttlebug.
  • I decided to cut out the heart so I could pop dot it over the embossed front panel of my card but before I did that, I stamped the Congrats and clear heat embossed it.
  • I computer generated the sentiment and pop dotted that over the heart.
  • I mounted that over a heavy white card base.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Here is the Groovy Flower Mask I used.

You would not find any card, let alone a Great Grandparent card at any store, my friend! Your friend is going to be so pleased with your beautifully stenciled card with such a wonderful color combo. Love your stamped sentiment and text sentiment, Karen. TFS Love and Hugs..Nancy

This stencilled heart is beautiful Karen and love the three wonderfully blended ink colours and framed with the aperture heart before adding the pretty stencilled flowers give a lovely clean edge to it. The background embossed dots and white splattering go perfectly, and a lovely appropriate sentiment to finish. A brilliant and special card. x

What a beautiful, unique and happy heart for the Grandparents, they certainly won't have a card as beautiful or similar to this. Love it.
