Good Tuesday morning everyone.
Hope you all had a good weekend and didn't get too wet and blown away, and stronger winds to come too. " Where's our Summer ".
I can't believe this is my 1st card for June, before you know it, my year will be up for the design team, it's going too fast.
I am having a relaxing Sunday, as Craig and his girlfriend Hannah have come over with a leg of lamb and all the trimmings for a lovely roast. I have to say it smells wonderful and I'm sure it will taste even better because I haven't had to lift a finger. Lets hope they don't clear off before the washing up though!. Knowing my kids they will.
Here goes with the card
Sue Wilson Portuguese collection- Lisbon
Sue Wilson Portuguese collection- Porto
Sue Wilson Finishing touches- Classic Foldover Flowers
Sue Wilson Embossing Folder- Bed of Roses
Sue Wilson Finishing Touches- Maidenhair Fern
Sentiment John Lockwood- Dogwood Flower Frame set
Creative Expressions- Iced Snow
Ranger- Perfect medium
Cosmic Shimmer embossing powder- Detail Black
Creative Expression- Blush & White
Creative Expressions Foundation card- Blush & White
Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle Texture Paste- Polar White
First I matt & layered, Blush ,Silver & White card and then embossed it with the bed of roses EF, I then made a smaller layer with the same set of cards. Then the two pieces of white card that had been embossed I grouted them with Polar white sparkle paste, and layered them with sticky pads.
I cut out 2 of the large folded flowers in blush felt 2 of the smaller folded flower in white and 1 with the small die in blush and cut in half to make 2 small flowers and arranged them on the card and added the leaves and the dandelion clocks. For the frill at the base of the card I cut 2 of the large folded flower dies and snipped off one edge attached to some bush felt with some thin pink ribbon and diamantes. For the focal I cut out most of the Lisbon die and backed the largest with double sided sticky sheet then put the fancy largest die cut onto the sticky sheet. I would have done this more simply, but it was an after thought as I wanted to add glitter. I cut the fancy centres out of the Porto and Lisbon dies and layered them with sticky pads for dimension. finally added 3 butterflies from butterfly stash and added 3 sparkles to each one.
I hope you like this one too!
