You're Inspiring! Mothers Day Card
Inspire Create Challenge #037
This week on the Inspire Create Challenges we have a colour challenge. I have to admit that I was definitely a little challenged with it and was looking around for inspiration. It's still cold around here but spring is definitely in the air so I brought home a couple of bunches of daffodils with me from the shops this morning. And so the inspiration for this card! This stamp set is called You're Inspiring, which is completely appropriate don't you think!
I just love daffodils, they are one of my most favourite flowers, they herald Spring and Mothers Day which for us in the UK is just next month. The bright yellow trumpets are just so cheerful.
How I met the Colour Challenge
The card base is Mint Macaron with a layer of Pool Party. I have stamped on Whisper White and coloured in the daffodils with the Dark and Light Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends - these are alcohol markers and blend beautifully. The stems and leaves are coloured in with a Mint Macaron Stampin Write Marker. I thought colouring the leaves in this colour ( as there was no green in the challenge) might be a bit of a stretch but it seems to fit quite well.
How I made the card/dimensions
It's got a fun opening which is very simple to make. The card base in Mint Macaron is A4, cut in half at 10.5 cm and scored in half at 14.9 cm. the front side of the card, I then cut in half using my trimmer at 5.2 cm.
Each layer is then approx half a cm smaller.
Pool Party - 14.3 cm x 4.8 cm
Whisper White - 13.8 cm x 4.3 cm
Pool Party - 14.3 cm x 10 cm
Whisper White - 13. 8 cm x 9.5 cm
I added the sentiment in Mint Macaron and a few rhinestones dotted about to finish it off.
Have you thought about Mothers day yet? There's lots of other occasions you can use this stamp set for too. It has Happy Birthday, Kind Thoughts For You and You're Inspiring.
