It's a beautiful sunny day here today. My hubby has gone out to do some photography with a friend and I'm going to spend the day crafting.
On Saturday I went to Coleman's Craft Warehouse with friends to the Demo Day.
This is one of the stamps I bought. It's by Woodware and called curly Sue. Michelle Johnson used this stamp to make a card the same shape as this. It's so quick and simple so ideal for filling up my monthly charity box.
As I'd been playing with my gelli plate last week I decided to use pieces of two gelli prints to make this card.
I stamped 'Curly Sue' with Archival black ink and painted the leaves with green acrylic paint. Then I put on the glitter stickers (also by Woodware).
The base of the card is a two inch strip cut the length of an A4 sheet of another gelli print. I backed it with black card to add strength to the base and stuck a piece of white card inside for writing a greeting on.
The card was so quick and easy to make and stands up beautifully. It fits perfectly into a 6"x6" square envelope and I'll certainly be making more cards like this when I'm in a hurry.
Green is my favourite colour and so I would like to enter this card into the Creative Craft Cottage Challenge #49
I'm off to play now. Have a lovely day!
