This is card I made for the June friendship card swap on the DoCrafts website. The card I received was so lovely I really felt I had to put extra effort into my card.
The card gave me the chance to use a some new Magnolia stamps I had recently bought. These were 'Love me' Tilda, a watering can, a snail and a grass & flowers stamp.
I stamped the watering can first. Using masking I stamped the grass around the watering can. On a separate piece of paper I stamped Tilda, the snail, daisy head and the butterflies. These were all coloured in with ProMarkers. I added Glossy Accents to the bodies of the butterflies and flower to add dimension. I used Nestabilities to cut out the watering can image and mounted it onto dark blue card. I attached the other stamped items onto the watering can image with double sided tape or a Quickie glue pen. I attached daisy head with foam pads. I used a gold Sakura pen to the flowers to finish.
I cut a large panel of dark blue card slightly smaller than the A5 card blank I was going to use. Onto this I attached a panel of blue and green flower patterned paper from the DoCrafts Hugs & Honey range. I punch two trellis patterned strips using the Martha Stewart Garden Trellis punch. I attached these with a Quickie Glue pen. Across the centre of the card I attached a strip of pink spotty ribbon. I attached the stamped image panel to this using foam pads. To finish I added a flowery brad and a greeting by Craftwork cards.
