Good morning my crafty friends. Here is the DT card I told you I was off to make yesterday for http://gruffiesandguests.blogspot.co.uk/ the theme is flowers and ribbon, With a prize of 7 digi's for one lucky winner from http://www.bugaboostamps.com/
I started this card as always with choosing a image from the House mouse triple CD and then took inspiration as always from the colours used in the image. I chose a backing paper of the same colour of the flower in the vase and embossed it with the embossalicous knit one folder to give it texture. Then I cut the image out using a tonic circle die and a border from the next size up and for the back layer I cut a solid circle from the tonic butterfly doily die using the closest colour to the orange I could and then a white layer from the same die and layered them together so the solid one would show through the holes. Then I used the Sue Wilson die from her Scandinavian collection Copenhagen and cut it in half to put behind the top and bottom of the frames to give a bit of a lacey look to it. Behind the image frame I used the tonic butterfly border punch to create a lacey border. I cut a backing piece to give a border around the outside from the same colour card I used for the center frame and flowers and layered it all on to the card. Then I made the flowers from the Sue Wilson finishing touches-delicate daisies open dies which are my newest favourite and placed some pearls in the center to match the card. Then I added a bow,as always, in the same colour theme and place a ready bought rose in the center. I hope you like my creation and it will inspire you to have a go. Happy crafting everyone
