LOVELY

After cleaning out and organizing my craft stuff all week, I just had to make a card.  Found this new (to me) challenge and it ends tonite - so another reason to make a card.  The challenge is Inspired By..., but their theme also fits The Card Concept and Concord & 9th's floral challenge.


I stamped C & 9th's Hello Lovely with black, clear embossed and colored with alcohol markers.  Used a hexagon die to dry emboss part of the background to echo the hexagon shape in the Inspired By... challenge.  After fussy cutting and mounting on the top of the card, I couldn't bear to cut off the edges, so will just use a larger envelope. I added some extra "dots" with a black glaze pen, since the stamp had lots of spatter on it. Couldn't decide on a sentiment either (and really didn't want to take away from the floral arrangement) so will put one inside when the time comes. The colors from the Card Concept photo inspired me and my style for it is clean and layered.



Thanks for stopping by and love to read your kind comments.

  5. AMAZING!! LOVE your design Betty. Such a gorgeous flower spray and it looks even more amazing fussy-cut and over top of the dry embossed hexagons. You have a lot of patience to fussy-cut this time, but it's the most beautiful design I've see with this image. Having the stems of the flowers go beyond the edges of the card base gives them so much movement. xx
