With Gratitude Card
Now that Valentine’s is over, it’s time to turn to more springy projects like this one.
Love the lime green and pink color combo on this one. It’s so bright an fresh. The papers come from First Edition’s Love Letters 6×6 pad. The papers were perfect for Valentines cards, but they also include some designs that are perfect for spring cards.
The focal image comes from Gina K. Designs’ Holiday Basket Stamp Set. I colored the flowers with coloring pencils and Gamsol odorless mineral spirits. This coloring technique is relatively new one for me. I learned about it from the wonderful tutorials at Stamp TV. So far I’m really enjoying playing with my coloring pencils and the Gamsol. I used Spellbinders Oval and Scalloped Oval Nestabilities dies to cut out the focal image from the white card stock and the scalloped pink mat. The greeting “with gratitude” comes from HOTP Tiny Words & Images Stamp set. Finally I added the cream double stitched ribbon to add some texture. The ribbon is also Gina K Designs. I love her ribbons. They are such a great quality.
