Sending Love & Hugs

Hello there my crafty friends!  For today's card, I started with a piece of white card and used Candy Pink Pixie Powders all over it.  I spritzed the powder with water and allowed them to air dry.  Next I cut four of the Cosmos Floral Panels out of the card.  I backed each of them with a white panel.  I cut a larger square of white card and attached the four panels around the edge.  I added glue to the flower centres then attached clear micro beads as accents.  I cut a small butterfly and dragonfly and added them to the panels.   I cut two small squares of white card using the Double Stitched Squares, then added them to the centre of the card.  I cut the Sending Love & Hugs out of a bit of leftover pixied card, then added an offset black shadow to the sentiment.  I glued the sentiment into the centre of the card.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 8"    8" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue
Such a pretty card! I’m away from home for a wedding and having to hotspot my iPad from my phone so nearly missed today’s post - but I managed the technology, a small achievement, and worth the effort to see this beauty.

Very pretty card Sue!

Scottydog said...

Pretty in pink. I love this design & would love to copy it but I don't make 8x8 cards due to the higher postage, so it won’t work on a smaller card. However thank you for the inspiration Sue.

ursula said...

Oh I just love this card, the pink is so striking, a really lovely idea setting the panels around the square and adding the square with a sentiment in the centre....I really do like this idea...I love my big cards, so ideal....thank you Sue....luv Ursula xx
