Belated Birthday Wishes

 Hello crafters!  I seleected a piece  Arctic Blue card and embossed it with the Twill Weave embossing folder for texture.  I cut the background on the diagonal and added mounting foam to both pieces.  I attached the pieces to another piece of white card with a small gap between them.  I cut the Sunflower Stained Glass Circle die out of black card.  I added a white backing piece to it, then began paper piecing it.  I used custard card for the sunflower petals and khaki green card for the leaves.  I filled the flower centr with glue then sprinkled Black Onyx glitter on to it and allowed it to dry thoroughly.  I attached the stained glass circle to the upper part of the card.  I cut the Belated Birthday Wishes in black and glued it to the lower part of the card.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  x  8"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

I do love these shades of blue with the faintest of texture to them the arctic blue is so beautiful, a perfect colour as a base for your really pretty design today Sue. Who wouldn't mind that their card was a day or two late if a beauty like this came through the letter box.
Have a lovely day everyone xxx

Hi Sue. Love how the stained glass window die, although quite simple, makes such a statement on the card. Love it.

Morning Sue - my favourite flower, but who doesn’t love sunflowers - they’re so cheerful! The sunflower works so well against the Arctic Blue - just like a summer’s sky. The diagonal cut is really effective in setting off the 2 elements of the card - love it! Thank you Sue - Colleen x

Love and hugs to everyone

Hi Sue, a beautiful CAS card. I love the embossing folder and it looks good being split on the diagonal. I also love the Sunflower Stained Glass Circle with paper piecing and the black glitter.
