Hi everyone! It feels like Spring here! A beautiful sunshiny day in Iowa!
My card today is using NEW dies from Memory Box and NEW Stencil set and die from poppystamps.
I started by inking the stencil set with three colors of Distress Oxide ink. Shabby Shutters for the largest square hole stencil, Peeled Paint for the next size and Forest Moss for the smallest. (it’s greener in real life)
Then I die cut the NEW Pointy Lattice Plate from poppystamps in white cardstock to glue over the top of the stenciled panel.
I die cut the NEW Memory Box Floral Bud and Stems die three times and colored with Copics. I remember the greens I used were YG61, 63, 67.
I die cut the NEW Memory Box Woodgrain Fence Pickets from watercolor paper and smooshed them a couple times in Gathered Twigs Distress ink refill and a couple spritzes of water. Then I decided to make them look more weathered and rubbed a white pigment ink pad over them. I still wasn’t that thrilled so I added some brown color pencil! How crazy! Next time I think I’ll die cut them in brown cardstock! hahahahahaha They do look weathered though!
I was following the sketch from the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge blog for my card but I’m too late getting it posted to link up. There was another panel in the sketch so I die cut the NEW Curved Cap Pinpoint Layers die in vellum. I think you can see it behind the flowers and pickets.
I used a piece of wide scor-tape to hold the front pickets together… that worked really slick. Then I wrapped twine/jute cord around the front panel layers before I adhered it to the cardbase.
I die cut the NEW Memory Box Tilted Thanks die from Memory Box Black Glossy Cardstock and two other layers of regular black cardstock and glued them together and glued them to the front of the card.
I don’t have very many pictures because it’s so bright today I ended up taking pictures three times! Picky camera or is it picky me! ha
I have a question for you though, if you don’t mind replying… When I write a blog post, it’s preset that the font is this gray color. If I want it black I have to remember to go in and change it. Do you have a preference? gray or black?
Thank you for stopping by! I hope to be back with a couple more flower cards!
Here’s what I used to make this card…
