Fanny’s Cuddle


I fell in love with this Sarah Kay Stamp when I immediately saw the name of it – Fanny’s Cuddle.   You see my Mom’s name was Fanny.  And so I dedicate this project to my Mom.

Flowers and Butterflies Close-up

Ribbon and Flower Close-up


All papers used are Basic Grey’s indie bloom. Except for card base which is made by Neenah.  Homemade flowers were made from the indie bloom papers using a retro flower punch except for the two roses (Prima). Flourish and butterflies are from my stash.  Entire card front was sprayed with Glitter Dust.  And stickles was used on all the flowers, flourish and butterflies. Bow was made from seam binding and dyed to match card using Distress inks.  Image was colored with Prisma colored pencils.  Front of card was embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder (cannot remember name of design) but made of tiny flowers (Cutters Creek carries other Sizzix Embossing Folders).   And center of embossing was left smooth using an oval shaped diffuser.  Embossed flowers were colored using Pebbles pearlescent chalks.
