My special guest stamper (aka dear daughter Amy, age almost 11) has another card to show you. This was the beautiful Mother's Day card I was so lucky to receive. Amy wants to tell you how she made it!
I had to make 4 Mother's Day cards because I have a Mum, 2 grandmothers and 1 great-grandmother. Mum showed me a cool way to make 4 cards out of 1 piece of paper. First, I used the Colour Coach to choose some colours. I chose Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue, Regal Rose, Apricot Appeal, and Almost Amethyst. I got a Whisper White A4 piece of cardstock and the 5 ink pads. Then I got a stamp set called 'Priceless' and I stamped my favourite stamps from the Priceless set all over the white cardstock. Then Mum cut my sheet into quarters. Then I got 2 A4 sheets of Regal Rose coloured card and Mum cut them in half lengthways. I folded them in half and we cut off most of the front part. I tied a different coloured piece of ribbon around each one (Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue and Apricot Appeal), but I did two blue ones because there were only 3 colours. I meant to give Mum one with a blue ribbon but I accidentally gave her a green! phew, It was her favourite colour. The last thing to do was stick it together and stamp Happy Mother's Day inside. I think they all liked their cards.
Thankyou for all the nice things you said about my last card. I really liked reading all your comments!
An artist in the making i think. This card looks absolutely gorgeous. I love the colours you used as well.ReplyDelete
