Pretty Peonies

Hey stampers, Anni here!

Today I am sharing two simple cards featuring Mama Elephant’s Pretty Peonies.

I started by stamping the flowers with embossing ink on watercolour cardstock and heat embossing it with white embossing powder.  For the colouring I used ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens and a waterbrush. Then I fussy cut out the images.

I wanted to create a clean and simple card and let the flowers stand for their own. So I asked myself: What could I add to make the card more interesting without taking the focus from the flowers? I decided to go with decorated rectangle die cuts. Reverse Confetti’s Lacy Scallop Frame dies are perfect for this. I die cut the rectangles from white cardstock and matted them with matching coloured cardstock.

For the sentiments I chose simple ones from Lawn Fawn. One is from the set Tiny Tags Saying: Birthday and the other one is from the set: Happy Happy Happy.

Both cards took something around 1,5 hours what is fairly quick for me – I am a real slow time crafter- and I had fun making them!

Thanks for stopping by and have a crafty weekend.
