These two cards were fun and easy to make and I whipped them up pretty quickly. Let me show you how--
I've recently invested in a new set of Mini Gelli Plates--I'm using the 3" round circle for today's cards.
I applied dots of Green Gold and Sap Green DAM acrylics to the gelli plate and brayered out. I pressed pieces of mixed-media paper onto the gelli plate to obtain both prints. The one on the left is the first print and the one on the right is the second print. I Love how they both turned out!
I masked around the circle and stamped the collage image from the The Golf Club set in Jet Black Archival onto the background. I heat set then ran through my sewing machine to add the stitched border.
I stamped the lady golfer onto mixed-media paper with Jet Black Archival and fussy cut. To create an anchor for this image, I used one of the Grunge Elements images and stamped a little bit of it into the corner.
I splattered Bamboo Twinkling H20s over the surface and heat set. I adhered the lady golfer and the word band onto the panel with matte Decou-Page and mounted the finished panel onto a fleur di lis embossed piece of kraft core stock. I also added a stitched border to the accent panel, just to make it a little different than the masculine version of this card....
I made this card exactly the same as the feminine version, except this card has a harlequin embossed background and I didn't add the extra machine stitching to it.
So there you go--A Mother's Day card, and an early Father's Day card, to celebrate those people in our lives who love to hit the links!!
