For My Friend

Hello crafters!  I started this card by selecting a piece of custard card.  I embossed it using the Rose Bed embossing folder.  I used spray glue over the entire piece then sprinkled Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz on it.  I cut a frame using the Clipped Corner Rectangles in white.  I added mounting foam to the back of the frame and attached a piece of custrad card.  I seated the frame in the centre of the card.  Using the Layered Daisies, I cut several flowers out of two shades of white card (coconut and bright white)and cut the leaves and stems out of two shades of green card.  I added yellow centres to all the flowers then assembled the flowers and glued them into the frame.  I cut the For My Friend sentiment in black and glued it beneath the frames daisies.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7" x   9"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Good morning Sue and all that pop in to see today's breathtaking inspiration. You've shared some beautiful projects lately but this is absolutely stunning, it's gorgeous, a happy start to a new day and what a way to start, this would deserve to be mounted on the wall in a plain shadow box, it would definitely bring a smile to the recipients face every time they looked at it.
All good news from biopsies and scans, I'm now going to settle with a hot coffee and catch up on the world figure skating ⛸
Love and caring to all blog family xxx

Hi Sue. What a lovely spring card today. So pretty with the daisies. Love the yellow colour which is quite unusual for me as I usually shy away from that colour on it's own.

Such a beautiful spring card, look forward to seeing all the little daisies coming up in my lawn, this reminds me of them....the launch once again was great, some amazing dies, thank you Sue...luv Ursula xx

Scottydog said...

Well I rarely use yellow or ‘custard’ but the custard elements really compliment the daisies perfectly. I bet the sparkle in real life is amazing but you have managed to capture it in your photos. Thank you Sue.
