Good Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all well, we had another lovely day yesterday, it was very humid, which seems to make it a little harder to move around without setting the heart into a galloping rhythm, never mind I got to sit and watch the others work, Sophie and Lucy where washing their cars and each other half the time! Paul got to some gardening after he got home from work.
Today's card came about purely because I wanted to use that ribbon!
The categories I used are : Embossing/Ribbon/Red&Green
I used a Crafters Companion 8x8 Embossing folder to emboss a piece of cream card which I matted onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler card (a match made in heaven). The overall size of the card was A5, the embossed panel measured about 1/4 inch smaller.
I wrapped the gingham ribbon around this panel and finished it with a bow. I then die cut the sentiment and a couple of poinsettias using the Brittania Poinsettia die from Pink Frog crafts.
I Layered the poinsettias in red & green card to try and make them kind of realistic and to fit the challenge. I die cut the sentiment twice as it's quite delicate and layering made it a little more robust.
To finish the card I adhered the sentiment and the two poinsettias, which I finished with a diamante in the centres.
I hope you like my card, completely different style to yesterday's challenge card showing how versatile this grid is .
I hope you have a lovely day, keep your Brolly handy!
Love and hugs to all of you,
