Courage for Dawnie

 

Welcome to my blog my crafty friends!

My card today is for a friend that is going through breast cancer treatment.  My inspiration was a picture that I had seen on Facebook that just “spoke to me”.  This is the picture

Here is how I created it.

Step 1  Create a 6″ X 6″ card base from 110# white Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step 2  Cut black glitter paper 5-3/4″ X 5-3/4″ Adhere to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

Step 3  I downloaded picture to my computer then printed copy on 90# white Soft Finish Cardstock then cut to 5-1/2″ square.  Adhere to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

Step 4 Die cut Garden Notes Dahlia from white 90# Soft Finish Cardstock.  Color with alcohol markers (I matched up the color as flower in picture was just a bit larger than the one I created so I needed it to blend).  Shape your pieces then build flower on card front using Kids Choice Glue.  Create a couple of leaves add to flower using Kids Choice Glue.

Step 5  Create Lady bug adhere to leaf.

Step  6  Using Suzanne Cannon’s A With Words – Courage 1 fro white Soft Finish Cardstock that has Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back and 1 from black glitter paper with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back.  Adhere white to card front then adhere black over white offsetting just a little.

Step 7  Stamp sentiment of your choice inside.
