Best Wishes



Good Sunday morning all!  I have a bright cheerful card to welcome you to the blog this morning.  I started by stamping the Pinwheel flower Stamp To Die For all around the edge of a piece of coconut white card.  I heat embossed them with true white embossing powder.  Next I inked the edges of the card with Worn Lipstick and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide. The stamped images acted as a resist so the ink was easily wiped away from the tops of the images.  I cut a smaller piece of coconut white card and embossed it with the Jacobean Floral embossing folder for texture.  I added it to the centre of the card with foam, then cut a wide frame using the Double Stitched Hexagons.  I cut out an assortment of sizes of the Pinwheel Floral die in coconut white card (enough to make three flowers)  I inked them with the same distress oxides then stamped over them with Black Archival ink using the same stamps as the edge of the background.  I created three flowers and seated them on the frame with the Windswept Grass as accents.  I stamped a sentiment and cut it out with the Stitched Flags and added it across the frame.  White on white mats and layers were used to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 8" x  8" in size.

Hi Sue
