Beautiful Inside And Out

Hello there my crafty friends!  I cut the Chrysanthemum Stained Glass out of white card twice.  I glued one of them to a piece of clear acetate.  I used the Pearl Tints to fill in the flower, leaves and background.  I set it aside to dry thoroughly.  Once dry, I glued the second die cut on top to hide any areas where the tints touched the top of the die cut.  I cut two frames from the Double Stitched Hexagons and added mounting foam to the back.  I raised the smaller frame up a bit higher than the larger one.  I cut a larger piece of white card to use as the background, then added the two frames to the top of the card.  I glued the Stained Glass circle into the centre of the frames.  I added mounting foam to the back of this piece then added it to another piece of white card that was cut larger to add the sentiment.  I cut the Beautiful die out of aqua card and black card.  I shadowed it then glued it to the bottom of the card.  I stamped the rest of the sentiment and cut it out with the tag die from the set and added it below.  The card was completed with white, black and aqua card mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2"  x  9"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Good Morning Sue. At last we are home from our holiday in EGYPT. Lovely holiday until two days before we came home when my husband was admitted to hospital.I
Very frightening experience for me.
I can't go into detail it's too long. But to tell you he was fit to fly on our scheduled return flight with a clean bill of health and we are now SAFELY BACK AT HOME. THANK GOD.
Today's card is beautiful Sue. I love the pastel colours and the design is very calming. Another one to recreate. Thankyou Sue.
Sending hugs 🤗 and best wishes to everyone who needs them today.
Kind regards Ann Toppcards in Leeds
