For Your Shower with Altenew


Happy Thursday, peeps!  My SIL wanted a bridal shower card, so I got up my courage to use my Altenew Painted Flowers stamps---for some reason, they intimidate me a little.  But I was happy with how this turned out....still experimenting with the placement, but I do like the colors!


This is a tall card, 7 x 3 1/2", so I did make a custom envelope which I forgot to photograph!  After stamping the flowers in Basic Black, Flirty Flamingo, Calypso Coral and Mint Macaron,  I filled in the smaller blooms with a white gel pen.  I added a black stitched scallop die trim, black gingham and a piece of burlap that was cut with a large scallop die:


And finally, a little banner with a SU sentiment at the bottom:


I really like the country feel to this!

So Cassidy is having a good time camping, but apparently she has to work to earn her keep!  Her daddy sent Dana this photograph, and it took me a few minutes to realize what exactly was going on...I thought she had some fur or feathers at her feet until I got a good look at her Pop Pop's head...she is giving him a hair cut!!!  You can just see the trimmer in her hand on the side of his head! And apparently she did Daddy's before she did his.  I particularly like the toes....so funny!  And remember, she's not even seven yet.  Not many people would let their six-year-old cut their hair, LOL!


I hope this give you as much of a chuckle as it did me!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

I thought my hubby let our Granddaughter do a lot of funny things, but never let her give him a hair cut....he had about the same amount of hair that her Pop Pop has....lol...yes this did give me a chuckle...

I know exactly what you mean about being intimidated by those stamps. I feel the same way sometimes! Looks like you've got the hang of them though! This card is so beautiful. I LOVE the burlap!
