Friends Are The Flowers

Hello crafters!  Today's card colours are Iris, white and black.  I started by cutting the decorative die from the Priscella die set into a piece of coconut white card twice, slightly overlapping in the centre.  I backed it with Iris card.  Next I cut two more of the Priscella die, once in white and once in black, and I used the outer cutting die to cut them out of the card.  I shadowed the white one with the black one slightly offset behind and mounted it vertically in the middle of the card, covering the overcut area in the background.  Next I made a rectangular frame using Iris card and the Double Stitched Rectangle die set.  I added mounting foam and seating it over my stamped sentiment and added it to the centre of the card.  I cut a strip of double pearls in half and ran them down each of the sides of the background, then created three flowers using the Cosmos Flower die set.  I cut Iris card for the base and added a black outline edge to them.  I attached them in opposite corners and added white leaves from the set as accents.  The card was completed with white, iris and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2"  x  9 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue, I love both the beautiful dies used and the gorgeous colours but I find the overall effect a bit too busy for me however I am sure I can take some inspiration from this at a later date, busy making Easter cards at the moment.

Ann Topp said...

Good Evening Sue Again forgive my being late. Every thing is topsy turvy at the moment...including me. I think I am having withdrawal symptoms... out of my routine... Missing my dancing as it's all been cancelled.
But one thing I am certain of is... Partycraft...And your beautiful creations...never let's me down and something to look forward to every time I sign on. Today is no exception and what a great sight to behold. Just beautiful... And the nicest thing is I have just bought this beautiful die... Thankyou Sue... For giving us some kind of sanity in these and the next coming days and weeks ahead. Sending hugs and best wishes to everyone who needs them today. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.
