Good Morning Ladies,
I hope that you have had a lovely weekend ourd was a mixed bag but I'm grateful for the time spent with Paul (you gotta find the positives).
We went food shopping yesterday, it felt more comfortable seeing everyone wearing a mask rather than feeling like you had two heads as everyone looked at you because you were the only one wearing one, the girls have both insisted on wearing from the outset regardless of what others thought, Paul came home on Friday with a pack of two masks that everyone in the office received so they are wondering if they are going to insist on them being worn at work, that would be a nightmare all day, the other thought was that they might be ending the split shifts and having the office full to capacity again, I really hope thats not the case as it more make the whole situation so much more of a risk. We'll see I guess.
Today's card is my first one for this weeks TicTacToe challenge, I used categories: Die cut or Punch/Green/Stripes.
I used the Concorde & Ninth Stamp set that I bought a few weeks ago, taking the Stiped one and stamping it multiple times in different shades of Green Distress Oxide inks. I matted this background piece onto a black mat, then onto a white card base.
I have an old Spellbinders Die set with matching stamps, I used the 'Friend' die to cut two layers, I then adhered them together and pushed the front piece into a Versamark ink pad and them covered with clear embossing powder, I repeated this twice which gives a lovely glossy finish to the die cuts. I then stamped one of the matching stamps to finish the sentiment.
I wanted to keep this card fairly clean and simple so I used my Chinese Rose flower dies to create a simple rolled rose, I coloured the card with matching Distress Oxide before cutting, I rolled three roses and added two leaves in slightly darker shade.
I arranged these in the bottom left hand corner.
I really like how if turned out, it has quite a modern look I think. I hope that you like it too!
I hope that the weather is kind to you all today,
Love and hugs to all of you,
