Hello there everyone how are you all?
Well as I said yesterday all the family are away for the weekend so I'm hoping Mr Blogger & Thicky Vicky (aka me lol) have done thier jobs right & this has published.
So we have a brand new challenge over at Noor Design UK this month & its soooooooo super duper easy peasy.........
............see easy right. I literally took the word 'Flowers' & went to town on it lol.
This is also a card for someone special, didnt put the sentiment on til after taking pics as I didnt want the person to guess from the sentiment who its for them ;-)
Its a very pink & shabby chic kinda card but I really enjoyed doing it. I barely planned anything on this card.....except the base that was planned but everything else got kind of grabbed & either die-cut first or just glued straight on lol.
A lot has got hidden but never mind if you look closely you will be able to see things poking out here & there lol.
At the top you can just see the Fantasy die peeking out & the Scrapiniec & some lace.
Ok so the base of this card started with a piece of 6x6 paper form the Maja Design Sofiero pad....my goodness I lurve this collection!! The top layer is from a 12x12 sheet which got cut out using a die form the latest Magnolia Doohickey club kit. Once it was cut out I then cut it out in white card stock also. I then got the Vintage Bricks die by Fantasy & I cut it out in the bottom left corn of the top layer & the top right corner.....leaving it open so you can see the paper underneath.....I have to say I love this die & the different ways of using it.
It may get a lot of use lol.
I've added 4 different laces would you believe lol. I knew adding lace in the traditional way would not look right so I just cut off piece of lace from all the ones I wanted to use & tucked them in here & there.
The white organza ribbon I made 2 bows & heat shrivelled them with my heat gun.....that Bev Rochester likes to inspire us doesnt she ;-)
You can see the Brick die effect here. You can also see little leave speeking out here & there, that is my favourite Joy Crafts Ivy leaf die & I cut 2 out & used them in the centre as my base leaves...
The larger green leaf is a Magnolia die, its from the Christmas Flowers die & I scrunched it up a bit as leaves are not flat.
I added other leaves in white using a Rosy Owl die, I did bend them a little but they still look flat here :-(
You can see the dimension in this pic, I added foam under the top layer to give it dimension.
I have machine stitched all around the bottom layer of paper but left the top piece.....not quite sure why I think it was because I was happy enought with just how the die-cut looked.
Inside I have decorated to compliment the front, the diference is I've cut the top layer in half & then going down the centre I used another Fantasy die.
The butterfly at the bottom is from my stash.
Hope you will join us in our Flowery challenge this month.....come along & show us all your flowers.....doesnt matter what kind even if its an image as long as we see flowers.
