Who Remembers Necco Wafers?The Color My Heart Color Dare http://colormyheartcolordare.blogspot.com/
color challenge this week reminded me of an old candy called Necco Wafers. I don't know if those are still in existence but they were pink and gray disks.
Ok, I had to go google it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Necco_Wafers
So they've been around since 1847, holy moly, who knew!? They come in more flavors now, including chocolate. But I digress...
Ok, so the colors this week are:
- Colonial White
I used my Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge Z3017 to cut a Mother's Day card. These holidays come up before you know it and I always am late. The cartridge had the cuts for the card, the front decorative piece and the inside decorative piece.
The Art Philosophy Cartridge Z1688 was used to cut all the flowers, flat and 3D.
Here's the front of the card:
I used lots of sparkles in Clear Z1752 and Pink Z1807 and including some older discontinued ones (metallic flowers) and Sparkles Flourishes Z1708. I also made clear dots in the scallops using Liquid Glass Z679. Allow to dry untouched for 25 minutes. Also great for dew drops on flowers! The scalloped piece was backed with the Silver Z1829 cardstock.
The flat flowers are 2 pieces each the were lightly sponged in Slate ink. The colonial white 3 D flowers were sponged in Pixie ink.
Here's the inside of the card:
The silver "ribbons" are the Silver Z1829 cardstock glued in place on the back of the decorative insert. The Silver Z1829 cardstock was also cut to fit the triangular piece.
Here is the whole card:
I hope you like this card and consider making one for your Mom. You know how you were always told to make something for your mother, she would really love something made with your own hands, well it's true! Here's to my Mom who is 92 and soon to be 93! I love this woman!!
Here's to all of your Moms!!
