Just a note . . .

It's time for another challenge with us at the Southern Girls.

This fortnight Team Lou have created projects to inspire you for the new challenge

Our generous sponsors for this challenge are:

Krafters Cart

MoonFlower Digital Stamps

KLM Digital Designs


Today I have used the Mum & Sentiment digital stamp set by KLM Digital Designs, one of our generous sponsors this fortnight.  My CAS card is "just a note" to remind someone special that we're thinking of them.  Given the troubling times we're experiencing all over the world at the moment, I think I will be making a bundle more, a perfect way to share some love and to try some different marker blends.

I opened the Mum & Sentiment digital stamp in Silhouette Studio, sized and rotated to fit on a 5" x 7" card base.  The sentiment comes in the digital stamp set and it's such a fresh font.  I printed the card front panel on X-Press It blending card, heat set and coloured with Copic markers.  I trimmed the panel to size and adhere to a 5" x 7" card base.

It's hard to photograph purple shades ... I don't know if I'm the
only one, but they always seem to look blue in my photos.
In "real life" the petals are light mauve to deep purple shades.

I created a sentiment panel to put inside the card (font details below), printed and trimmed to size.  I trimmed another panel 4mm larger from smooth white cardstock and used the BV04 Copic marker to colour the outer edges to make a contrasting matting panel.  I used liquid adhesive to adhere the matting and sentiment panels inside.


NOW it's YOUR turn!

I hope that I have inspired you to get creative
