Todays card is inspired by Sue's shows at the weekend, despite some frustrating presenters Sue battled through and made a lot of people very happy with her amazingly inspiring demonstrations to her stunning sample cards, I often think that if it takes me virtually a whole day to make one card how long does it take Sue to get all the samples ready for a show? I wonder how many cards she can make in day?
For this card I covered an 8 x 8 white card base with a matt slightly smaller than the base card of teal green coloured card, covering the bottom third of the card with a double sided sticky sheet and added some Cosmic Shimmer Iced Snow.
I then cut a slightly smaller matt of white card that I ran this through the Eternity (my favourite) embossing folder from Creative Expressions, then added one of the older Spellbinder edge dies to cut a nice scalloped edge to this layer, I popped some foam tape on the back of this for a little dimension and stuck it to the card base, before adhering completely I stuck my teal coloured seam binding
I tied a bow out of the same seam binding as used on the base and stuck it directly under the focal element. I then cut several flowers using CE Full Petal Camellia Dies out of teal card and shaped them and added a pearl to the centre of each one, I placed them around the focal element and
There you are the finished card, I know some of you aren't keen on the colour, its kind of one of my favourites.
