Time is whizzing by and I cannot believe it's July already!
I wanted to share a very simple card that I put together the other day. I posted this photo on my social media:-
Then I settled down to create a card using some of the products. I dropped the butterfly, substituting that for some mulberry paper flowers in my crafty stash and swapped out Nuvo Crystal Drops for some Nuvo Glitter Drops instead.
And ................... this is the result !
I have had the beautiful intricate Sizzix/Tim Holtz Bouquet Die for sometime now and really have been itching to do something pretty with it (its on sale now folks!). So I die-cut it in white card stck and also die-cut a heart frame using some layering heart dies. I die-cut a heart from the intricate piece with the larger of my pair of heart dies, and then stuck it to the reverse of my heart frame. I backed that with a gorgeous piece of Mauve Purple Weave Textured card stock from Tonic Studios, before adhering the topper to the front of my pretty pink card base.
As I said earlier, I used some mulberry paper flowers to decorate the heart. The two small white flowers were already sparkly with glitter, so I decided to echo that by applying some Nuvo Glitter Drops (Silver Crystals) to my little Rose.
I added some pretty gold leafy branches which are from the new Petite Floral Potpourri Etched Dies from Amazing Paper Grace.
The sentiment has been stamped and heat embossed in some Lawn Fawn Gold embossing powder. I have to say that I really do like this embossing powder. It is a very fine powder and produces a really super smooth and crisp embossed finish.
The sentiment is from my Altenew Sentiment Strips 2 photopolymer stamp set.
I love using soft pastel colours and I think these work beautifully together for this card.
Hope you likey.
Thanks for stopping by.
Bye for now. I am off for a nice hot coffee. See you laters!
Happy crafting everybody!
