Lush and sweet...WoJ GDT Call

Here it is as promised, my card for the WoJ GDT Call that Katharina is holding. As I said yesterday my card was already done and needed only to be photographed, which was not such an easy task at all. I always keep feeling I haven´t fully managed to capture the true essence of a card... well of course a picture is only a poor substitute of the real thing. Ok now I´m babling, let´s get back to business and on to my card which isn´t just what you see in the first picture.

It´s a folder with pockets and gift tags.

I chose to use gorgeous Willow Writing Recipes stamp as the main image, but I think in my card she is writing a diary dreaming of someone special rather than writing recipes. Those gorgeous, lush, velvety papers are from Basic Grey...I just love the muted tones in them. As for my colouring I of course used my beloved Promarkers, the brown and pink tones only this time to create a harmonious and romantic colour combination. I did lots of distressing sanding the edges of my dp´s and also gave my scissors and distress inks ago. I didn´t make my own flowers this time as I found these lovely paper flowers from a craft store I visited the other day and just had to use them right away. They are actually my first shop bought flowers anywhere...I know I´ll need to buy some more soon as I fell in love...again LOL. I added a bit of ink to the flowers to make them a bit more worn down (I also crunched the largest one quite hard to make it more flat).

Here´s a few close-ups of the tags I made. On to the tags I stamped and masked this cute Dove from Whiff of Joy`s wedding and baby collection. The background is stamped with a script background stamp.

I also want to show what the card´s like from the outside. So let us start again right from the beginning:

Here´s the front...

...and the back.
The card is held together with a piece of linen string I threaded through some cotton lace (the lace is coloured with Promarkers to make it fit perfectly the colouring of the images). Yesterday I promised my card would feature 5 Whiff of Joy stamps... did you come to the same conclusion? So my WoJ stamps in this card were Willow writing recipes, the dove, Melinda´s heart and two sentiments designed by Katharina herself.

Now I guess all that´s left to do is cross my fingers and hope I get picked.

(This card also fits the current challenge and DT call at Simon Says Stamp and the lots of layering challenge at A Spoon Full of Sugar.)

  1. Uskomattoman hieno jälleen kerran!!! Olet kyllä todella taitava ja ansaitsisit tämän dt-pestin: blogissasi kun aina näkee todella hienoja wojn leimasimilla toteutettuja kortteja. Tykkään!! (Eihän tästä voi olla tykkäämättä?!)

  2. Kerrassaan mykistävä kokonaisuus. Ihanat kukat. Komeat boordit. Upea paperi. Herttainen leimakuva ja sen rauhallinen väritys. Kaikki juuri oikeilla paikoillaan.
