Hello there, how are you all?
Well its the 1st March........where are these weeks going.....think they need to slow down.
Anyway its time for a new challenge over at Noor Design UK & this month we have a lovely challenge...........
.........just what we need right now, spring & summer are my favourite times of year.
I've gone for a more shabby chic kinda card using that fabulous new Fantasy die I told you about yesterday in my post here. Also the perfect Pion papers Spring Garden thrown in with some flowers......what could say more spring that ;-)
This time I've used as my focal point along with the Marianne Doily star die.......well when I cut it out for my test I had to use it lol.
Lots of layering on this card & lots of dimension.
This piccy is to try show you the dimension on this card.
You can also see the 2 laces I've used, there are also pieces of lace peeking out at the edge on both sides.....one bit is just under the green gem on the left side.
As you can see the 3rd layer I edged with a Marianne Border Wave die & tucked a bark star in there. There is also more lace tucked under the 2nd layer.
The little clay butterfly is from my stash, extremely lightweight that is.
I made a cabochon from the same paper as whats in the centre of the scrapiniec. You can also see the brick wall scrapiniec peeking out here too.
The large white flower in the centre I made myself with Foamiran, the leaf attached to the underside of the flower I made with foamiran & a rosy owl die.
Tracy at Noor Design UK stocks the widest selection of Foamiran as well as lots of fabulous dies & moulds & stamens.........a huge choice.
The foacl point comprises of a Marianne doily star die, the new Fantasy die cut out of Pion Design Palette Green l & then a scrapiniec frame on top of that with Pion paper in the centre & some flat backed pearls.
Now I could not find my half pearls so I used my fat backed pearl string & cut off what pearls I needed.
I also cut some border from the Borders sheet & then added a sentiment cut from the same sheet on top. The butterflies were also cut from that sheet (love these) crackle accents added then thin pearl string.
All papers were distressed using scissors so I could get the right distressing I needed.....I find scissors are better when I'm needing a more distressed look in places. Of course as always I machine stitched around every layer.....even following the border line on the top layer.
I added wax cord & seam binding in amongst the flowers, as well as another bark star & some tiny gypsophila.
I really enjoyed enjoyed making this card & everything just fell into place.......it went together like strawberries & cream......but in shades of green lol.
Please pop on over to see my teamies creations & we hope to see all your wonderful spring themed cards in the challenge this month. Bring us some spring ;-)
Thanks for stopping by.
