This card is huge ( about 10 x 7.5 inches ) and after all the small cards I have been making of late I found it quite a challenge ! This is one of my " choose a colour for the background, make up lots of components and then fiddle around until you are happy adding bits in to balance mistakes " kind of cards !!! Do you ever make ones like that or are you too disciplined and organised !!!
The card used is pink pirouette and naturals ivory with pretty in pink to accent.
Making these flowers is a bit of an obsession at the moment so Rosie gets one on her card with an antique brad ( how did I craft without these ! ). My components are made from using several stamp sets : You are Loved, Artistic Etchings, Nature Walk, Four Frames and the sentiment is from the Sale - a - Bration set Elementary Elegance. I also threw in a piece of DSP cut using the top note die .
I love to layer and stamp in between; I know it's a bit messy for some but it's my style of crafting and that's very much what it's about for me - finding your own style ! I used two inks : chocolate chip and soft suede and enjoyed adding punched edges using just about every edge punch I own from SU : eyelet border, scallop trim border and corner and the dotted scallop ribbon border. The flowers were punched using the scallop circle, fancy flower and itty bitty punches . In addition I used the decorative label punch to shape the sentiment and used my new favourite toy - my Sizzlits Junior Type Alphabet dies to make my letters and numbers ! Phew ! I think that's all ! It's almost taken me as long to list all the materials and tools used as it did to make the card in the first place !
The SALE - a - BRATION continues to the end of the month so still plenty of time to join up or get your freebies; please contact me via the link on my profile if you wish to take advantage of these very generous offers !
Off to get ready now; we are out for dinner tonight at our favourite bistro to celebrate Rosie and Richard's birthday's ( no cooking for me ! LOL ! ).
Thank you for stopping by; it is so sweet of you to visit !
