Well, you may remember my first commission card, the "squirrel with the ogre" card. No? You can read all about it here. My "customer" was a former hair client from Boston.
Well, I have yet again been approached by a former client, the oh-so-wonderful Ms. Lina, who needed a fancy birthday card for her mom's birthday. The brief included tips like, "She likes nature, she is a scientist, she is from Denmark..."
Soooooo....Flowers! Flowers are from nature! And they have them in Denmark!
I pulled out my Wplus9 Fresh Cut Florals stamps with matching dies, and got to work!
I made this--
Let me tell you how FUN it is to cut and stamp these flowers! Oh, man, I had every ink I own out at some point, mixing and matching. It is amazing how much impact you get from these tiny, tiny die cuts. I was one happy stamper doing this card.
I also went to town with foam adhesive, lifting the flowers into this massive bouquet. I then decided to make an even bigger display by adding in some Sizzix leaf die cuts done in green cardstock. I made a good, solid padding piece to go over the top of it all, by taking a thick piece of cardstock and passing it through my crimper. I sure did NOT want this one crushed after getting it "just so."
Then for the inside, I kept the stamps out, and added a second bouquet.
I made this--
So, I am waiting to hear whether Mom likes it or not, but as you can see, I will have to wait until after the 19th.
I had so much fun making it, and I get PAID! I'm gonna make it RAIN up in here!
Thanks for stopping by!
