Goodluck card

Hello!  Hope you are staying warm and safe.  We have been battling crazy cold weather here.  Well in keeping with my resolution here is another post just for the blog that won't be shown on my channel.

One of my colleagues gave her resignation before the holidays and her last working day was the 2nd of January.  I figured it would be nice to give her a card signed by the entire department.  So I prepared one.  I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to do.  I knew that she loves biking and I had a perfect stamp that had not yet been used.  I believe I had gotten this when it was on special with the thought of making her a b-day card.  Since that is not happening now it was the time to use it because who knows when I next will feel inspired with this stamp.

Don't know about you but there are many stamps in my collection that are not being used and that should be used... all because I don't see the perfect opportunity and since I don't make card as often well this doesn't help.

Anyway here is the card that I made.
The bicycle was stamped over book text.  I used some gel pens to color in the flowers.  The sentiment was also stamped on a book page (I used the 1st page where there's the title and there is lots of empty space that can be used for this).  I couldn't find a good sentiment and I have lots of letter stamps, this was the perfect opportunity to use them.  I have used my spellbinder circle and scallop circle.  And lots of layering.

I really liked how the card came out.  I figured it was elegant and just sweet in general.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

  1. Catch the bug blog - Anything goes challenge
  2. Crafters castle - Anything goes
  3. Qkr stampede - anything goes
  4. Moving along with the times - Flowers
  5. Crafty hazelnuts patterned paper - using patterned paper
That's it for me for today!  Have a great Sunday and see you all soon!

Hugs

  9. This is quite lovely.

    I like to challenge myself with stamping. Dig out a set you haven’t used and just make a card!

    I love your videos and you’ve given me inspiration for using my scraps (and stamps)
