This card was made using Avery Elle's Peony stamp set. I love, love, love this set! Not only are the flowers gorgeous but it also has a lot of great mix and match sentiments that you could use for a number of different cards.
I started by stamping out the peonies and the vase they are in, and I colored them with my mini distress inks. After they were dry I cut them out using my Sizzix and the coordinating dies for the stamp set.
As I was looking for some coordinating paper, I found this one that looked like some lined paper. I thought it would look neat if I stamped out a bunch of the words to make it look like someone wrote in a notebook. After stamping out the words, I used my Crop-A-Dile to add a few eyelets on the side. Then, I adhered my peonies down with a little foam adhesive to make them pop out a little. To finish it off I added a few black rhinestone hearts from my stash.
I'll be sending this one off to a dear friend that's been battling some rough circumstances. Hopefully it will brighten their day!
I'm also linking it up with Jennifer McGuire's challenge to Share Handmade Kindness! I think it's a wonderful way to connect with loved ones and let them know you are thinking of them!
