Something Floral For Friday
Good Morning Ladies,
I made today's card in some what of a hurry yesterday afternoon, Becca suddenly remembered that she needed a card for one of Adam's family and then remembered that she needed to take away with her this morning. The hardest part for me is coming up with an idea for the 'brief' that I am given.
The brief for this particular card was 'something flowery, girlie and pink'.
I have a pad of paper that I bought from The Works, it's a 12 X 12 and I am pretty sure if cost £3. It has the pretties background papers in, real tiny delicate floral patterns on either pale pink or pale blue background.
This particular sheet had flowers that match exactly to the Stampin'Up! colour 'Sweet Sugarplum', luckily I had the card, ink and ribbon, which meant creating this card so much easier.
The hardest part of creating a card that looks right is finding card stock and accessories to match your decorative paper, even though this wasn't a SU paper I still had the perfect match!!
I used a Grand Floral Oval and 'Floral Oval' Spellbinder dies layered up, I printed the sentiment directly onto the card that I then die cut and inked through the die before removing it. I then added ribbon to my base card and popped on my ovals, I added the bow with hot glue and then arranged some roses that matched the colour of the card and paper and added some foliage to soften the edges of the clusters. I then just added a few pearls and a little pearl flower to the bow.
I wish it took the same time to create as it does to describe! The longest part of the process was finding everything I needed, after that it was just an assembly job.
I can hardly believe it's Friday again, what have you all got planned for the weekend?
We haven't decided yet, we need to go visit my Mum before we go to London, so that will be either this weekend or next depending on what shifts the girls are working. Paul also wants to get the allotment tidied up ready for winter, our garden needs some TLC too!
So plenty on the 'TO DO' list!!
I hope you all have a lovely day however you are spending it,
Love and hugs
