Hello crafty friends, Kia here with you today to share this card called “Sweet Friend”, which is featuring Altenew’s Precious Peony stamps set. This is such a beautiful set, which always makes it fun to colour. I used two of the stamps from the set for this design, and only 5 Copic markers for colour. Using such a small number of Copic’s was a first for me, but I love the results.
I picked two of the stamp images from the set to colour. The Copic colours for the flowers are R35 and R27, and for the leaves YG05, YG06 and YG07.
Once I finished with the colouring I cut the images out, and set them aside. Moving on to the background I opted to use an embossing folder, which is also from Altenew called Garden Harmony and Hammermill cardstock. I spritzed both side of the card before running through my machine.
To put it all together I picked a Gina K Design cardstock called Red Hot for my card base. Using glue I attached the embossed piece to my card front. I then attached the right side image using glue. To the left image I added foam squares before attaching it resting over the opposite flower. I then finished my card with a sentiment from Pinkfresh Design called Heart Smiles.
For the inside of my card I again embossed another piece of Hammermill card, gluing it in place. I then stamped a sentiment also from the Pinkfresh Heart Smiles stamp set, and went around the edges of the piece using a Copic marker, which I also did for the sentiment on the front of the card.
Thank you for visiting today. I hope you have enjoyed this card as much as I enjoyed making it. I wll be back next week with another card made from this set. See you then.
