I always like the sketches at Case This Sketch, and this week’s is no exception. I instantly knew how I was going to use it to produce the card above, which was made entirely from items in my stash. The smallest heart is made of silver mirri card with Anita’s Clear Gloss over the top to add a little dimension:
A recent request for a wedding acceptance card for a sunflower-themed wedding had me baffled until – the day after the request – I visited a craft show & found some sunflower stamps on the Inklyicious stand at a reduced price! Then the sketch over at Clean & Simple Stamping caught my eye, along with the vellum-themed challenge over at Cards & More.
The largest sunflower in the stamp set was stamped in Stazon black ink onto vellum then coloured with Promarkers. I fussy cut it & attached it to the card with some Stick-It double sided adhesive which is normally intended for diecuts but worked well under the darker-coloured vellum. I coloured it in artificial light but re-coloured it after seeing the photo;-)
The button was the medium sunflower in the set, stamped onto shrink plastic the cut out with a circle nestie die & heated to shrink it. The greeting was computer-generated in AT Mahogany Script.
I’m rather late posting this, the wedding was a couple of weeks ago now. As usual it was a rather last-minute rush to make it but apart from the dodgy stamping in the top left corner I think it worked out ok!
Hunkydory cardstock cut with Nestability Hearts. Background paper & greeting stamped with Hero Arts Two Hearts wedding stamps, small hearts were free with a magazine.
