Love Blooms Here



Hi bloggers!  This is probably my favourite shadow box card ever!  It is a bit time consuming with all the little flowers, but totally worth the time!  The video will show you how simple it is to put together!

















The finished dimensions are 7 3/4" x  7 3/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue. If this is your most loved shadow box card ever then please don't ever part with it lol. It's like the chap said to me at market last month "do you ever feel you're parting with one of your children" ? So when you've made that one special card that makes you smile and makes your heart ping, don't ever part with it - mind you Sue, every card you inspire us with makes me smile and makes my heart ping, unless it's grunge lol I'm just not that creative for grunge lol.
On that note I'll send my usual love and hugs and hope you have a lovely day xx

Hello Sue, todays card is really lovely, the shadow box dies are so versatile and suitable for any occasion. The sentiment is an all time winner for me, so I can see why this is one of your favourite creations. You designs always inspire me to try something, whether it is from one element or the whole design. Have a great day everyone. Bx

Morning Sue, I can see why this is one of your favourite cards, I would love to receive a card like this as I enjoy 'puttering around in our garden although at present, it looks more like a swimming pool than a garden.
I adore using your shadow card dies. Hugs xx Pauline

Hi Sue

Do like garden themed cards and this is no exception. I enjoy making "fiddlely" cards so this one appeals to my creative side.

Suzzette Yandle said...

A beautiful and happy shadow box card. Great video, too. After your yesterday's wonderful pixie powdered background card, I played with the Lava Red and Candy Pink pixie powders. I wish you could have seen my hands. As I sometimes do, I forgot in the excitement of playing with the pixies to put my gloves on. Looked like I was bleeding to death. Now I have several "red" pixie powdered backgrounds. I had fun! Thanks for the inspiration.

Sue MacFall said...

A lovely springlike card - cheers me up a lot. Thank you Sue.
