Today, I've got the blues ...
as in blue inks, blue paint, blue cardstock!
February is usually all about the reds,
but my card today is a wintery, shimmery pop of blue.
This is my February card for my One Plus Twelve card challenge ~
where each year I pick just one stamp, use it twelve times!
The idea was a creative way to stretch my stamps
and not just use them 'one and done.'
2021's stamp is Altenew's Build-A-Flower Magnolia,
my very VERY favorite flower :)
My card had a little outfit change.
I started with the card base and stamped the magnolia onto vellum:
I was most unimpressed!
I knew immediately it was a mistake and thought this card was done :(
Once you glue vellum done, it rips the paper taking it off.
I quickly stamped out another magnolia onto vellum (again)
and also one on white cardstock - neenah solar white.
I used my markers to color the white cardstock
and placed the new vellum on top of it - to give it a subtle look.
The sentiment is from anothe Altenew sentiment stamp set
and could not be more true for me.
These words were just calling my heart!
