Good Monday Morning Ladies,
I hope today finds you feeling fresh and relaxed after the weekend ☺️. We just 'pottered' most of the weekend, yesterday afternoon was lovely here, I wanted to go outside with Paul but just couldn't bend to put bulbs in (which is what I needed to do), so I gave up on the idea of going out in the sun, then I heard Paul calling me so went to see what he wanted, bless him he had set the garden shredder up with a HUGE pile of branches and old Raspberry canes, he asked me if I minded helping him (I knew he had just created the job to get me outside) so I stood and did as much as I could, after that we prepared Roast chicken dinner with Apple crumble, I sat and made today's card while Paul peeled vegetables etc. Nothing very exciting but I am perfectly happy doing anything in Paul's company x
Today's card is made using a Hero Arts die that I bought a long time ago and have never had it out of the packet, after buying it (from a seller on fb for £4) I just couldn't decide what to do with it, so after a bit of googling Background die cards I saw something similar to this so set about making it. I die cut the background 3 times, adhered 2 together (for depth) and used the 3rd to cut up for the flower embellishments, I coloured those with my StampinUp Alcohol pens, I stuck the background down to my Balmy Blue card base and I was going to add the flowers but decided that looked a bit 'flat' so I decided to cover the coloured flowers with Versamark and then cover them with clear embossing powder and heat set, wow did it bring them to life!!
I stamped my sentiment and die cut and added a narrow white mat. I arranged the flowers around the sentiment and popped some coloured glossies in matching colours on the flowers in the background.
It was finished.....
