Delicate Flowers You Are So Special to Me

So I have two aunts that are my mother’s younger sisters. They are now 89 and 92 and there health is failing. They have been such a wonderful influence in my life and I wanted them to know how special they are to me. I made the previous card for one of them and had Simon Says Stamp’s Delicate Flowers out for the sentiment and decided to use that stamp set to create the second.

I stamped the images onto Strathmore Bristol Smooth Cardstock with a light ink and watercolored them using ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers. They turned out lovely. I stamp them a second time with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed them gold and then die cut them with the coordinating dies.

I cut a scalloped rectangle from white cardstock and arranged the flowers where I wanted them. I then used Glad Press ‘n Seal to keep them in place an allow me to pick them up and add adhesive to the back. I used liquid glue for everything except the largest flower and placed them on the scalloped rectangle.

Before adhering the largest flower with foam tape I stamped the sentiment with VersaMark and heat embossed it gold and then placed the largest flower.

The final embellishments was to add gold sequins around the card front.

I am so grateful for these wonderful women in my life and I pray the Lord will watch over them until he takes them home to dwell with Him.
