Design team make..a card for a special friend

Hello everyone...Genny here. For today's design team make I thought I would share this card with you. I have made it over the weekend for a friend and really enjoyed making it. To begin I made an 8x8 gatefold card. I created 2 panels for the front and two for the inside of the panels.I cut the panels with a deckle edge and then inked them in a mixture of pinks and lilacs. I found the two flower sets in my stash, which had a matching mandela stamp. I stamped an absolute load of them, then coloured them with my promarkers and finally cut them all out. I have to say that it was all very calm whilst cutting..NCIS was on the television and all the cats were out in the evening sun. Normally they do love to help..lol

For the middle back panel, I found this silhouette image in my stash and thought it would make a great focal point as my friend is into dancing.I mounted that onto some rainbow card to match in with all the other colours.

The side panels are decorated with yet more of the flowers. And finally the back panel.I coloured that again with my inks and created an oval..so that I had some where to write. Stupid as I am, I had written it before I photographed..hence the blue piece of card. I left the inside of the oval clear but edged it with a small leaf tapestry stamp. I finally added 3 more flowers to the side.

I really enjoyed making this card. All over the place you can read about mindful crafting. A quiet space where you just concentrate on what you are creating. I think that this card must fit the bill. Even with all the cutting out..it was all very calm. So why not look at what flower stamps you have and create something similar. I would love to see what you can create. For any of your crafting needs or wants..just pop over to Julie here at JB-Crafting Supplies and she will help.

Well I'm off to do some more crafting..I think some more colouring is called for. Next week I will be sharing some stencilling and using some texture paste. So until then...take care and happy crafting.
