Thank You - handmade cards with love




Hello Crafters! Here are two cards I have made as part of Kylie's International Blog Highlight for this Friday. The theme is Thank You and these cards are for my wonderful mother whom I am forever thankful for, for all she has done and the support she has shown me throughout the years. I'm truly blessed to have her. 

The Birthday Bouquet designer series paper helped create the layout of this card with it's organic flowing wavy pattern of the hearts and scallops as well as the colouring. The designer series paper pattern I used has been watercoloured and applied that to the roses to give it that painterly quality.  The Roses are from Picture Perfect stamp set and have used stamp number 2, which is slightly detailed of the three. I lightly stamped the image and then applied watercolouring to push out the colour and to build the rose petals, letting the water work its magic. It's just beautiful when it dissolves and dries. The rendering has been done to add depth to both the roses and petals. 

The Thank You sentiment on the front of the cards are from Rose Wonder and Another Thank You and the sentiments inside are from Rose Wonder and Picture Perfect. The saying tie in so perfectly with You are Just the Nicest and What a wonderful blessing you are to me.

I have stitched the layers with my sewing machine and left the threads lose to give it the free flowing feel that ties in well with the watercolouring and patterned paper. I just love this look - shabby chic.  I'm not the best at sewing a straight line but the wavy lines of the patterned paper is so forgiving that it helped mask that hehe. I have also added the gold sequin thread for embellishment to hang on the side. The other card is simpler as I just wanted to highlight the rose bouquet and used the paper piercing pinpoint border to give it that stitched look - it's always gives a straight line hehe.

Well I hope you like both of these two cards - a flight of fancy. All the items I have used can be purchased through my online store or alternatively please send me a message and I can help to order them for you and they will be delivered directly to you.
