Hydrangeas, Lace & Pearls

Hello and as we enjoy the late summer sunshine, I was inspired by the last of my lovely hydrangeas to create this card.










Card Recipe:
Stamp: PSX Botanical Hydrangea
Colouring Mediums: Memento, Promarker Pens
Paper & Card: K&Company Life’s Journey, QVC
Tools: Spellbinders, BigShot Pro
Embellishments: Seam Binding, Lace, handmade pearl hatpins, mulberry gardenia, cherry blossoms and tea roses, Anna Griffin sticker




To make this card, I cut a piece of A4 shimmer card (from QVC) to 15cm wide and sored and folded it in half. Then, using my Big Shot Pro, I cut the card base using my Spellbinders Grand Labels 1 but under-lapping the scored and folded edge to create a card base rather than two mats. I then scored the top of the card in two to create an easel card.

I stamped my PSX Botanical Hydrangea stamp with Memento Cocoa ink directly onto K & Company Life’s Journey papers. The image is coloured in with Budding Rose and Fresh Meadow from Promarkers Spring Limited Edition colours – they are so gorgeous, I am going to need to get another set to put away.

I then used seam binding (The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop), lace and beautiful mulberry flowers (Wild Orchid Crafts) to embellish, and if you like my handmade hatpins, don’t forget to take a look at my creating hatpins tutorial.
