Today I'd like to share a card I have made for The Mad Scrapper blog It is for my sister and brother-in-law to celebrate their anniversary.
This card uses the fun Sommartider-Badshorts paper by Maja Design. I have used both sides today along with a corresponding solid cardstock called Starfruit-Blisssmoothies by Bazzill. Janine has 4 different papers to show you in this collection and all are fun and zesty. I'm thinking they would be great for beach or summer layouts too.
Here are a couple of photos to show you the papers I ordered along with 49 and market flowers and single-flowers which come in loads of colours and sizes, and the cute vintage rose in ivory which in the end I didn't use but I will soon.
To start with I took a 6x6 cardblank and added the plain yellow leaving a small border. I used the yellow side of the Badshorts paper distressing the edges first, then I cut a slightly smaller size and used a curve edge die to remove a corner with more distressing on the other 3 sides. I added this to the card with foam squares.
I cut out a doily in the yellow and added a stitched circle to the centre. This was placed on the card and to it I added cheesecloth to soften the underneath of where the flowers will go.
Here you can see the flowers in place with the addition of a couple of brads (had those years lol) to the centres of the daisies and I have added some leaves in a lovely zesty lime green which is in the paper too.
To finish off today I have added lovely snow pearls about the layout to match those in the flowers. I also stamped a sentiment to a strip of yellow and added to the space at the bottom.
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you can leave a comment just to let me know who has been. Till next time, take care.
