Hope Your Day Is Wonderful

Hello bloggers!  Back to a clean and simple styled card for today's offering!  I started with a piece of coconut white card and used Worn Lipstick and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide inks direct from the pad to the card.  I swiped the pads across the card diagonally until the card was completely covered with colour.  Next I used the Elegant Flower Trio decorative dies and cut all three of the flowers in a diagonal pattern into the card.  I added a white backing to the card and then used a white paint pen and splattered the card with it (I use a ruler to the side of the pen over the card, it splatters nicely that way, but it does dent the pen a bit too!)  I cut the sentiment Hope Your Day Is Wonderful several times in white and glued them together then attached them to the top corner of the card.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2"  x  8 1/2" in size.  All for now. Sue x

Hi Sue, I wondered what the white specks were on the background of this pretty clean sample and now I know, it always pays to read your method. The best thing is the colour choice can be any and the placement of flowers can be mixed to make a lovely selection of cards for many occasions or just notlets what more do you need? A day crafting with SW would be great lol. Whatever your up to today, have fun xxx

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I do like this modern and fresh looking card very much. In your instructions you say you cut the flower trio into the coloured card but to me it looks as though they are die cuts glued on top. Whichever method used the result is lovely.

In this fashion my friend Wesley Virgin's story launches with this SHOCKING AND CONTROVERSIAL VIDEO.

Wesley was in the army-and soon after leaving-he found hidden, "SELF MIND CONTROL" secrets that the government and others used to get everything they want.

THESE are the EXACT same secrets tons of celebrities (especially those who "became famous out of nowhere") and top business people used to become rich and successful.

You've heard that you use only 10% of your brain.

Really, that's because most of your brainpower is UNCONSCIOUS.

Maybe that conversation has even occurred INSIDE OF YOUR very own head... as it did in my good friend Wesley Virgin's head seven years back, while riding an unregistered, garbage bucket of a car with a suspended license and $3 on his banking card.

"I'm so frustrated with living check to check! When will I finally succeed?"

You took part in those types of questions, isn't it right?

Your success story is waiting to start. You just have to take a leap of faith in YOURSELF.

UNLOCK YOUR SECRET BRAINPOWER

According to Stanford Medical, It is indeed the ONLY reason this country's women get to live 10 years longer and weigh on average 42 lbs less than us.

(And really, it has absolutely NOTHING to do with genetics or some secret exercise and absolutely EVERYTHING related to "HOW" they eat.)

BTW, What I said is "HOW", and not "WHAT"...
