Good morning my lovelies how are you all? Thank you for your sweet get well wishes for Natalie up to now fingers crossed she kept a bit of water down last night & she has just had a weakened milk feed.
Anyway we slept in the living room with her last night but I couldnt settle & knew I had cut a card out last week & I had plenty of coloured images so thought I would put a card together.
I made a tag card a couple of weeks ago, yeah I know I still havnt posted it on here lol. When I was making it I looked at all my tag dies, I have quite a few & I barely use them so that gave me this idea.
WARNING PIC HEAVY
I drew around my Magnolia Doo-Hickey die onto card & then scanned the image, once scanned I then enlarged it & printed it out onto another piece of card as a template to draw around. Fold over your A4 card & place the template so that parts of it just overlap the crease of the card, those are the parts that will keep it joined. See pic further down for better idea of this.
TIP: When printing out print out a second one slighter smaller so you have a template for the paper.
Now I love this idea however I'm not happy with the decoration at all but I was following a colour scheme over at MDU & well tbh honest its not choice of colours........I'm not a fan of orange, I like terracotta but not so much orange.
This flower I made from ribbon last year some of you may remember me posting the pics....yeah can you believe its took me this long to use it......should of made it in a diff colour but I'm glad I did it now lol. The leave of course is another Magnolia Doo-Hickey.
This is the inside & I kept it pretty simple. I used another one of my Magnolia Doo-Hickey dies for the tag inside & stamped a sentiment on from my wood block stamps on my shelf which I've had since I started crafting..........gosh its been nearly 2 years since I started.
The image I coloured up months ago so no idea what colours I used all I know is I coloured her with Copics. I did add some shading on her hair with Dark Umber prisma pencil last night to give it more depth.
I used my Magnolia tag template again & drew around it for cutting out Longing Tilda as I wanted the hole in a different place then I ran the die thru my bigshot & cut another tag out in kraft card & stamped To & From on it.
Ooops need take my son school back soon.............
Lol was hoping get it done before I took him lol.
