I've been busy working on some cards to send out to the Lasting Hearts Card Drive. I just got them in the mail this morning, and this is the last set that I managed to put together.
I started with stamping out all the peonies and leaves. These flowers are from Avery Elle's stamp set, Peonies. Its an absolutely gorgeous set. After they were all stamped out, I colored them with my watercolor pencils, and then blended the colors using my waterbrush. I then used the coordinating dies and ran them through my Sizzix to die cut all the little pieces.
My next step was to stamp and die cut the word "Prayers" with my Prayers stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. After they were cut, I added some Wink of Stella to give it a little shimmer.
Then, I cut out three note cards using my Lawn Fawn Stitched Journaling Card die set. I adhered the cards down on some green striped background paper using some craft foam to help give some dimension. Then I glued on the peonies, leaves, and "Prayers" dies.
Lastly, I used some of the mix and match sentiments from the "Prayers" stamp set to add a few more words around the die.
I find sometimes that keeping my cards simple really brings the focus to the sentiment, which is what I was going for here. These cards are going to such a sweet cause and I really want them to be an encouragement to the recipients.
