I purchased the 12"x12" Collection Pack
because I couldn't decide which to have! So for this card I made a 7x7 tent fold card and to it I added the first layer flat, cut slightly smaller of the Dream Big
page but first I stitched around the edge with embroidery floss 357, inking the edge with Brushed Corduroy
and then distressing the edges.
Next I took Amazonite
and cut a 6x6 piece, after that a slightly smaller piece of Slow Down,
capturing that sentiment in the bottom left of the page, I did just a little stitching in the top right corner before adding ink and distressing the edges and sticking it down to the Amazonite paper. To this I added foam to the back before attaching to the base card.
Next I gathered some embellishments I thought I may use. All from 49 and Market,
plus some blue lace and an ivory daisy from my stash.
Here you can see how I have put the flowers together on the card. Firstly I die cut a doily displaying the opposite side of Dream Big and to the underside I attached the blue lace. Before adding it to the card I put down a couple of leaves from Vintage Artistry In The Leaves - Foliage. I stamped a Happy Birthday on to a scrap of the paper and added it to the doily and then went about adding the flowers I chose from the packs.
Here you can see the sentiment I have chosen to highlight on the card front. This card is for my sister who works tirelessly for her community and has just become a Nana and I'm so hoping she will start to slowdown a little and take time for herself.
To finish the card off I have added Self-Adhesive Pearls - Denim
along with some sequins and a couple of butterflies who come in with the leaves.
Thanks for stopping by again, I do hope you find time to pop in to The Mad Scrapper,
either online or the bricks and mortar shop as there are lots of beautiful things to see.
Until next time, take care
