Well the weekend is nearly over. I have had a busy weekend working on wedding stuff. We have also been up to the hospital this afternoon as my Mother-In-Law had a knee replacement operation yesterday. She is very sore but hoping that this will help with her mobility. She is in her late seventies but still leads a very active life. Hopefully, she will be out on Thursday. I will let you know how she gets on.
Today I thought I would share a card that I made using a new stamp set from Honey Doo Crafts that I got just before christmas. The stamp set is called Flowers for design and this is the first card I have made using it.
I used one of my favourite embossing folders for the background. I find this embossing folder so versatile and love the images on it. I embossed a piece of white card and then cut a circle aperture in the centre. For the centre of the aperture I used the stamps and stamped onto vellum using versamark. This was then embossed with white embossing powder. I used various shades of purple promarkers to colour the flowers. The vellum was mounted onto purple card and then the embossed piece mounted on top. I stamped, embossed and coloured two of the larger flowers. These were curled for added dimension and then stuck on the card around the aperture. The sentiment is from an old stamp set that I have and this was also embossed with white embossing powder on vellum before cutting out and mounting onto purple card. Some purple gems and sparkly dazzlers to the centre of the flowers finished the card.
Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think. A bit different for me but love the effect.
