WCMD with Power Poppy!



It’s the best kind of day!  World Cardmaking Day!  And today, the Power Poppy gang is celebrating by creating our favourite kind of card, and you’re invited to play too!  


There are a couple of favourite kinds of cards I like to make.  Though I probably use more birthday cards than anything, my favourite to make is a card that will encourage someone.  Something to spur them on, or brighten their day because they know they’re loved.  So, this design is created with Power Poppy’s Fortunes of Fall set and these adorable vases of zinnias.  I love to work with flowers and with stamps that have a lot of colouring potential.  All the base colouring is done with Copics, and then I finished off the details with Prismacolor Pencils.  

I made a bit of a easel fold for this design, anchoring the fold with a pretty ribbon tag die from The Cat’s Pajamas.  


Zinnias are just the most cheerful flower with their wide variety of colours, and I just love the unique little vases Marcy illustrated too!  

We have FUN news for today....

Oh my, Christine! What gorgeous coloring! My favorite kind of card is also encouraging, and I love to write something special inside. I am over the moon for how you've colored this gorgeous sweet array of flowers in their containers, and it so makes me smile! Love your added stitching and the wonderful easel card (and the Spellbinders labels die that I forget about...I love the shape). Exquisitely done, sweet friend! Hugs and love! xoxo

JoanneO said...

Thank you for the beautiful card. I too, like to make cards of encouragement. I never thought to use Prismas over the Copics! What a great idea! I have to try it today. I am not up on all the ways to color, as I haven't been able to spend the time to read all the blogs and get new ideas. Now that I have the time, I'm going to make sure I try new things.
Thank you again. I had always liked seeing your ideas.
