Wow, that has been a long time ago! If you follow me on Instagram, you have probably seen that I am still spending time creating cards and other things, although I often lost my mojo concerning cardmaking. However, I haven't been very active in blogland. I was doubting about continuing my blog, but what I really like about having a blog is that it creates a kind of archive. It definitely shows your development. So I will post new pictures, but maybe not at a very regular basis...

Today's card is a monochromatic card. I saw a nice idea somewhere on the Internet of a special folding of the card, see the pictures below. That was my starting point. I knew that I wanted to use vellum, distress ink and I jumped in the current craze: Tonic's Nuvodrops. I started with colouring the cardstock with tattered roses distress ink and stamped some polkadots with the same ink. I thought that the stampset Floral Sketches from Papertrey Ink would be perfect with this card. I die cut some flowers, coloured them with the same distress ink and stamped the flowers with a darker colour of distress ink. I made a bunch of them and I adhered some pink nuvo drops, which I prepared some days ago, at the heart of the flowers. With nuvo drops Morning Dew I adhered some drops directly onto the card. After punching a hole at the top to get the two sides of the card together, I finished the card with a sentiment on a craft banner, a vellum banner and some twine. 

I made this card for Rhodé who is celebrating her birthday today. I added two colours of Nuvo drops to this card, hope she likes them as much as I do ;)
Thanks for hopping by and have a lovely weekend!
