Happy Sunday! Hope your weekend has been going well! It's been another sunny (but a bit chilly) one over here, which is to be expected this time of the year, I guess, and I'm looking forward to some warmer sunny days!
It's the first Sunday of the month, and that means it's time for a new challenge theme at Penny Black and More, this month our theme is Feature a Creature. One of my favorite themes, if you've been following my blog for a while, then you will know that creature and critter cards are my favorites!
This week we are being sponsored by Penny Black, Marianne Designs and Bee Crafting, meaning we have some fabulous prizes again for you to win, some of these will be brand new things from Penny Black's newest release. So do come join us for a chance to win! Remember, you don't have to use Penny Black stamps to play along, any stamp company is fine but no digi stamps.
For today's card I made a "Get Well" card. The stamp is called "Easter Carrots" but I feel like it's more suitable for a get well card than an Easter card. I think this stamp might have been retired, if you're interested in buying it, you might find it on ebay or maybe etsy. Otherwise this set includes a similar stamp. I stamped and heat embossed the image on Bristol Vellum Card Stock and I used my Zig Clean Color real brush pens for coloring. I fussy cut the image. Usually I cut super close to the image but this time I thought I'd leave a little bit of a white edge. Not sure which way I like it more ... The green striped paper is from Stampin Up (old) and the print paper is from a 6x6 paper pack by Prima Marketing. A stack I had for a while so I don't know which set it came from.
The sentiment is from the clear set Snippets by Penny Black. I framed the card using bashful blue card stock. Butterflies were done using an older Martha Stewart punch and sticky pearls were added to the centers. I finished off the card by adding some natural jute twine and adhered to a Neenah linen solar white card base. The complete card measures 4.75 x 4.75 inches.
