For my card I’ve used Mother Deer and Fawn .Such a tender moment.They’re printed onto kraft card and have been coloured with water colour pencils.I’ve never tried this before and was a little worried what would happen.Apart from the card buckling a little there weren’t any other problems.It didn’t matter anyway as it laid flat once stuck down.The printer ink didn’t even though this was freshly printed.I played with my new toy,the Grand Calibur,again creating the base using Grand Nestabilities Labels 4.I used Nestabilities Labels 1 to cut out the image and the card it’s mounted onto.I didn’t want to cover the patterned paper up too much as this is from my coverted pack of Persimmon Papers by Papermania.I also thought it would tie in with the other nesties shape.I cut the tab using Labels 1,stamped the greeting then trimmed it down.I added a length of grossgrain ribbon and some die cut flowers,with threaded button centres and leaves to finish.Supplies : Image : Mother Deer and Fawn from Digi Doodle Shop Sentiment : From Crafter’s Companion 3 Birds Cleary Hand Stamped box Mediums : Water colour pencils,Archival Ink Pad Coffee Bean Card & Paper : Kraft,Papermania Textured Capsule A4 Colossal Pack,Papermania Persimmon Collection Tools : Spellbinders Grand Calibur,Grand Nestabilities Labels 4,Nestabilities Labels 1,Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations Die Tattered Floral,Sizzix Bigz Beauty Bloom by Brenda Pinnick,Sizzlits Decorative Strip Elegance,Sizzix Extended Spacer Platform,Sizzix XL Cutting Pads,Big Shot Embellishments : Grossgrain ribbon from stash,Woodware Pastel buttons,Tan waxed cord
