Good Morning Ladies,
Todays card was inspired by the Portuguese Background die that I cut while at Pats last week (she had been on a shopping spree)! hehe!
Anyway I cut the Portuguese Background Die with black card, the small inner die in cream card.
I mounted the black background onto cream card and then onto a black matt of card, I stamped the 'Special Friend' stamp onto the inner cream die cut and mounted onto the background with mounting foam for a bit of dimension.
Two stick pins made in Black and Cream add the finishing touches!
All the dies used on this card are from Creative Expressions, designed by Sue Wilson.
What do you think ladies, does it work??
I was going for cleaner lines, no flower overload, I think that the Portuguese die gives that feel anyway, almost Art Deco in style, I think the die would make great man cards too!
I seem to be turning to cream card more often than white these days, I think it gives a softer contrast
to black than white card does.
Well I have got Sue and Pat coming over today, so that will take my mind off of the dreaded MOT!
I will pop in later when I get the chance,
Love and Hugs to all,
