Hello, friends! I hope you’re enjoying a truly wonderful day. It’s Nancy with you on the blog, and I’m excited to share a new card. I have a friend in need of something special for a loved one battling a serious illness, so I’ve created this in hopes of providing a bit of cheer to her day. I gave quite a bit of thought to which papers to use, and for this project I am inspired by the beautiful pastels of the Sofiero collection.
It’s almost impossible to show glitter effects in photos (I rarely use it), but this card has glittery sparkle within the bouquet tumbling down the center for a ‘fairytale’ feel. The flowers are a mix of Prima and handmade. You’ll find the two that are handmade at the bottom of the floral spray, which are my first attempt at Foamiran flowers.
A label die and hand punched lace anchor the florals at the right edge.
The sentiment stamp below seems perfect for this project.
A loopy twine bow adds a feminine flourish. I love including bows of all types, and rarely feel like a card is finished without one. The interior provides ample of space for a personal message.
