pretty flowers


I have to say, this card took fussy cutting to an extreme place even for me but I kind of love how it turned out!

I stamped the floral bouquet on a piece of Neenah cardstock and colored everything with Copics and then added some more details and shading with color pencils (I can't color a decent rose, I don't know what it is about that flower that stumps me but boo to roses.) Next I fussy cut out the top of the image (The cutting seriously took me longer than the coloring did. so. much. cutting.) I added the sentiment in the bottom corner and then cut up my foam tape in itty bitty pieces so I could pop up all of those flowers and leaves. I stamped my background in Espresso Ink on a dark brown cardstock (I've loving that wood pallet background ♥) and then adhered everything together and finished it off with some white nuvo drops.

Nothing super exciting is going on here, trying to figure out valentines for Bree's classmates (do i buy them or make them? stickers or candy?) and her teachers (i'm thinking the apple shaped pack of lindt truffles in the valentines section for her teachers with a nice card.) I don't like not really knowing what to expect, I don't know if the class has any other crafty parents so I don't know if other kids will make them or buy them. I'm kind of leaning towards just buying them, it's an early start/preschool class so they're a little young to care about homemade vs store bought.
anyways, have a great day!
