Hi peeps. Vera here today. I can’t believe it’s already August. Where did the time go? I hope your year been good so far. Mine been a rocky one, but I have to say that crafting keep me sane. When I am super stress out, crafting help keep my blood pressure down. 🙂
I am thankful that this weekend I get to craft a bit and that makes me happy. I was going to just make 1 card for today, but ended up with two. Let’s get on with it, shall we?
First up is this bold color peony card.
I started by die-cutting the Peony Layering Coverplate SVG file with my Brother Scan-N-Cut. This set comes with 3 layers, but I only used the first one for my card. I cut once using black cardstock and once in white.
Adhere the black outline to the card base. Then, before taking off the white one from the mat, I went ahead and color he flower and the leaves part. Once I am done with the coloring, I simply pick up all the inside piece one by one and adhere it to the black outline. Finished by stamping the sentiment from Toned Squares set with Caviar ink pad and adhere a couple dew drops.
Now, like I mentioned earlier I was only going to do 1 card. But, after cutting the peony with the white cardstock and coloring it, I ended up with a colored outline peony. I just can’t let it go to waste, so I decided to use it up and make a second card.
I have to admit, this is the rare time I did more than two layering on a card. And, no it wasn’t on purpose. When I was adhering the panel to the card base, I adhere it upside down. I was like, darn it. I can’t undo it since the foam adhesive tape I used is super sticky. So, I had to cut it and instead of having persimmon color card base, I ended up using a white card base to frame the persimmon panel.
Same steps as the first card, except I only use the outline part an for the sentiment I used sentiment from Dearest Peony set. Two cards with quite different style using same image. I love the way both cards end up and I hope you like them, too.
Well peep, that’s all from me today. May your week starts off wonderfully. Cheers….
