Sunny Smiles Citrus Card

I pulled out the Essentials by Ellen’s Rustic Botanicals stamp set to work on a Mother’s Day card.

And got hijacked by this circle stamp that reminds me of sliced citrus fruit.

So, I went with it. Happy. Bright.

Rustic Botanicals Mother’s Day Card

It is so hard to make something with this many individual stamped images without making mistakes, even with a MISTI! This was my 3rd try, and there are still flaws. Alas, I covered the biggest one with the sentiment strip, and used a sand eraser to get rid of most of another.

Coral, Yellow and Green Garden Birthday Card

(click on any image to enlarge)

 

I really like square cards – how about you?

I stamped the flowers first, then used a little masking to get the stems where I wanted. It looked too flat, so I pulled out the matching dies and embossed the outlines around the flowers and stems. YAY! I didn’t ruin the card!
