Good Sunday Morning Ladies,
Todays card is made using a very subtle shade of aqua, its one of Anne Marie Designs new colours,
It is a beautiful colour, its just not showing up on here too well.
I pierced around the edge of a piece of white card that measured approximately 7x 7 ins, I then used the Spellbinders Grand squares dies to cut a Matt of the 'aqua' card and mounted it on foam tape and stuck it onto the pierced background that had a small matt of aqua card behind it and then stuck onto
I then cut the Ornate Pierced Square Dies from the Noble range by Creative Expressions, I used the outside edge, the decorative insert and the inside edge to cut the first matt, I then use the middle decorative centre piece and its cutting edge for the centre piece, I put mounting foam (cut into very thin strips) under the outer die and a big piece under the centre square and mounted both of these onto the aqua card. I then stamped my sentiment onto a piece of the aqua card and cut it out using the very centre square of the die set.
I added aqua coloured pearls to the white card and white adhesive pearls to the aqua card, these dies have really good 'designated spots' to put the pearls on! I then made a small arrangement of flowers to put in the top right hand corner of the card, using matching aqua & white roses. In the opposite corner I tied a bow using aqua seam binding and popped it on a piece of white tulle with a couple of pearl stringy bits for a bit of movement, I popped another aqua rose and a couple of leaves on the centre of the bow. I finished with a couple of complimentary coloured stick pins.
I hope you like the card and I look forward as always to reading your comments.
I hope that all of you Mummy's out there have a lovely day. For those of you that are missing your mummy's my thoughts and prayers go out to you, I know you will be remembering what amazing times you shared with your mum, on this very special day.
Lots of love and Hugs
