I mentioned in my last post that you should stay tuned for more Timeless Love and here it is… already!
Last week, my brother and sister in law welcomed a sweet tiny pink bundle, Everleigh Jane. She is such a doll and weighed in at just 5lb 8oz. Holding her feels like you’re only holding the blankets! How blessed we are to have another happy, healthy family member.
Of course this calls for a card. I thought her name was super pretty but a little bit vintage so I wanted the card to reflect that. I was also a little short on time so I flicked through my Project Life cards to find a starting point. I chose a black and white background card that I thought would suit perfectly. I added a spray of watercoloured flowers from Timeless Love and a sweet little banner. To keep with the vintage theme and to personalise, I used my brand new Alphabet Rotary stamp (why did I wait so long to get that??).
Of course I matched the inside of the card as well which was very easy as I had to crop the PLxSU card to fit the front. This meant I had a cute little black and white strip to use on the inside. I stamped some Blushing Bride cradstock with the Timeless Love stamp to match.
Of course it’s nowhere near as perfect as tiny Everleigh is but I think it does the job!

More Timeless Love projects…
Every year there is one set in the catalogue that I often overlook on the first perusal but then it grabs me and I can’t get it out of my head until I order it, it arrives in the big brown box and I have a play. This year’s set is Timeless Love. I just LOVE the vintage style of the flowers as well as the font and sentiments.
I knew that my first play would involve some watercolouring. I know, I’m getting predictable. I wanted to try a style I hadn’t before so I stamped very lightly in Pink Pirouette just to give a slight outline of the flowers. Then I gave each of them a rough watercolour wash and then went back and added more colour and shading. I did want to keep the rustic vibe happening though so it’s purposefully not quite perfect. I loved the result without an outline so I kept it. Perhaps next time I’ll stamp over the top again.
I then added a layer of vellum to soften it even more with a stamped sentiment on top. My blog followers will know that I’m not a sentiment person. I don’t know why but I usually don’t add them to my cards. This one however, I LOVE. I love the font, I love the words, I love the meaning. So if you receive a card from me this year, there’s a chance it’ll have this sentiment on it! I then added some of the new Everyday Chic washi tape to the edges – it’s also a sneaky way of attaching the vellum without adhesive showing through. Finally I added a Calypso Coral seam binding ribbon, mounted it and I was done. And I love it!
I hope you like it too! See below for all the supplies I used. You can even click through to my store to buy straight away!
