Sending Hugs

Hi crafters!  I used a background of Arctic Blue card and white card for my floral arrangement.  I cut the flat vase out of black gloss card.  I selected several of the leafy dies from the Beautiful Blossoms die set and cut them out of a couple of shades of green card.  I also cut two of the woody branches and two white lotus flowers.  I arranged all the pieces and glued them into place to create a rather moden looking floral arrangement.  I cut the Sending Hugs out of black gloss card and added it to a white shadow backing then attached it above the focal element.  I used Glossy Accents to add a few droplets as accents.  The card was completed with white and black gloss mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  x  8 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, another gorgeous sample, I had forgotten about this die set, I know I have it, a good time now to get it out and have a play, I do like it when you resurrect the older dies and give them another airing, so to speak, it reminds us of what we have in our stash, thank you for that.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Oh wow Sue this was my favourite piece of inspiration during the launch, there's something about your floral dies that always catch my eye and go to the top of my needs and favourites list. I'm going towards the CAS cards at the moment the less is more and this beautiful collection gives just that, it gives the biggest effect with just a few dies, I really need this new floral and forna collection. Hope everyone's day is a pleasant day xxx

Hi Sue, a beautiful and most elegant card that I loved on launch. Like Pat L above, this set is at the top of my list but is vying with the panel dies and the new Christmas ones!
