A few recent cards
It looks quite simple but surprising amount of work,
base cream card embossed with swiss dots embossing folder.
Gold pearl card cut and embossed in a Sue Wilson design spellbinders die edged with black soot distress ink. Stamped sentiment cut with labels 4.
Black flourish die from Cheery Lynn.
The poppys are my own design cut from red canson Mi'Tientes cherry red paper, inked with black soot before being sprayed with lava red cosmic shimmer mist and a hint of of mango blaze. 3 were layered with black cuttlebug snowflake dies scrunched up to form the centre. The other three were wound around diamante pins before being shaped. Leone Em fronds punched from gold card to hide the pins. And finally in the corner 3 faux pearls using cosmic shimmer gold pearl pva glue.
I was so pleased with Jackies card I decided to make one similar for another friend from Playdays, Lorrs.
This time I went with a patchwork embossing folder from docrafts on pearl card which has been distressed with frayed burlap ink.
I used a spellbinders pendant die, scalloped circle nesties, circle nesties and a sentiment from SU.
Again the cheery lyn flourish die.
The flowers are my own pinwheel design cut in various sizes and inked with several yellow & red distress inks. Sadly I was in a rush so photoed the card while flat and in the box.
Huge apologies for yet another bloomin variation on the poppy card, if you think you're bored with them I'm even more bored lol. Hubby loved the poppys so much I've had to make an identical one for his dads 80th birthday and today I've had to make one for our friend Daves birthday.
Dave is hugely patriotic and has many many England flags around his house. For those overseas the English flag is white with a red cross and our national flower is a tudor rose. So for Daves card I had to go with red and white and I drew a tudor rose for scal. You can't see if from the picture but I went with a SU lattice folder which looks like basket weave from one side but the side I have facing is lots of tiny crosses. Real red SU ink & card and white card from Annamarie.
