I started with a base card made from Basic Black cardstock. I followed the instructions link that was on Mae Collins website. Once I had folded the base card. I added strips of Cherry Cobbler cardstock the left and the right of the Diamond. I then adhered a piece of Swiss Dot embossed cardstock to the Diamond and stamped one of the flowers from the Fifth Avenue stamp set. I stamped the flower twice, once on Cherry Cobbler cardstock and the other on whisper White cardstock. I then trimmed both flowers and offset the White Flower over the Cherry Cobbler flower. I then coloured the stamens black and adhered the flower to the Diamond.
I then stamped part of the sentiment ‘for you’ from one of the from the Afterthought stamp set. After finishing the card, I thought I could have also put the sentiment ‘Just’ in the top Left corner of the card and ‘for you’ in the lower Right corner, maybe next time.
I am going to give this card to a special friend who has been away from work for a while and she is coming back next week.
