Cards for Self-Isolation

I have decided to make cards to send to many of my friends during our requirement to self-isolate to let them know that I am thinking of them and there for them when they need a chat.

I really likes the sketch a Freshly Made Sketches #428 and used some Altenew stamps and dies to play along with Happy Little Stampers – Dies – March.

I actually made 12 of these cards with a variety of background DSP. The circular die is a bit fiddly when trying to get the paper out so they took quite a bit of time to make.

My second card is for the Happy Little Stampers – Watercolour- March challenge with an optional twist to add flowers.

I had some floral images ready to colour in my stash from my last visit to my friend Michelle’s house, so this card didn’t take long at all to pull together. I water coloured the flower and leaves and then fussy cut them out, added a sentiment banner and mounted them onto some DSP.

Well, I have another 22 cards to be made, so I’d better get back to it.

Thanks for looking, enjoy the rest of your weekend and stay safe and well.

  1. Great idea Tristan. I really like this idea and I too and sending out some cards to friends and family. Your cards are delightful. Really like the first one. I have that die but have only used it once.

  2. I love that circular die cut, Tristan … it’s so delicate and dainty with those soft coral blooms! Fiddly, p’raps, though full of impact! Your yellow and black blooms against the aqua basket weave are dramatic and striking … such a fabulous way to say hello to a friend! Anita 🙂
