Thanks for your Kindness

Hello again! Just thought I would post a card that's taken some time to put together to thank someone for remembering my birthday at the end of June. I've finally managed to get my hands on some EZ mount to make use of a second hand sugar nellie stamp purchased from ebay.

The papers are all (apart from silver mirricard) from My Mind's Eye 'Bloom & Grow' collection (6x6 paper pad) which is available to buy from The Glitter Pot (£3.99, great value for money, perfectly scaled for card makers and good quality paper. I used a black dew drop Memento 'Tuxedo Black' ink pad to ink up a Sugar Nellie stamp called 'Bunny with Flowers' and coloured in the image with Ciao Copic pens. Flowers are by Prima, brad centre by Papermania, leaf frame made by placing one fo the Sizzix Sizzlits dies from the 'Flowers, Branches & Leaves 3 Die Medium Set'. Sizzix Sizzlits dies work just as well as Cuttlebug dies in the Cuttlebug, cheaper and designs are larger in size. Orange Organza ribbon is by Chatterbox and image embellished with flat backed pearls secured by using Anita's 3D Clear Gloss Finish as an adhesive. To frame the card, I have hand drawn stitches using a green and orange metallic gel pen.

As you can see, the inside of the card has also been completely decorated as its an extra special card! Inside I have used the remnants from the sheets, cut labels for messages using the 'Nestabilities - Labels 1 die set) and some green Papermania flower and leaf shaped gems for a little bit of sparkle : ) 'Best Wishes' is from a See D stamp set (can't recall the name sorry) and the main message inside is by Penny Black Inc is a wood mounted stamp. Thanks for visiting!
