Are you getting ready for the long weekend? Last night I spent some time playing with my Lily of the Valley set. I'm so pleased with how this card turned out. Thank you Heather for the inspiration.
I started with a piece of Crumb Cake paper. Various images were used from the Grunge Corners set and were stamped in Crumb Cake. The Lily of the Valley sentiment was stamped in Always Artichoke. The edges were distressed then sponged with ColorBox Chalk Creamy Brown.
I mounted the focal image to a piece of patterned Always Artichoke designer paper. 3/8" Kraft taffeta ribbon was wrapped around.
Next, I used the matching Lily of the Valley die to cut out the pretty flowers. The image was stamped in StazOn Olive Green and colored with Prismacolor Pencils with Gamsol. I decided to pop it up for some dimension.
The inside sentiment by PSX was stamped in Always Artichoke and embossed with clear embossing powder and a heat gun. The corner was decorated with another Grunge Corner stamp in Crumb Cake.
The Lily of the Valley in my garden is blooming right now and I will be sharing some photos with you soon.
Have a safe and wonderful Memorial Day!
