I have been bursting to share this! :D lol. My card today was recently featured in the 'Cutting Edge article in 'Scrap & Stamp Art Magazine', and I was so chuffed and proud when I found out it had been chosen.
I thought it fitted this weeks theme of 'Frame It' over on our Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge perfectly too as it uses one of my favourite frame dies - Polynesian Sails Oval.
I started off with a 6 x 6 inch Kraft Card base and stitched and layered MME Paris & Co papers. I framed this fun Lili of the Valley image with the top part of the Polynesian Sails die and used the matching Angel Wing to create the backing in Kraft card. The border is the brilliant Pennant Die which I cut twice, once in Kraft and layered a 2nd cut in paper for contrast. The embossing on this die is perfect and always comes out superb.
I made the variety of flowers using a mix of Build A Flower dies and the larger tatty flower is BAF #2. I then added the tiny flowers using the Buttercups in Embellishment #2 set, and finished the card off with some pearls and pearly brads.
The corner metal embellishement was hand-made by me on a wire jig and the pins were hand-made by my blogging buddy Karen. I printed the sentiment on my pc.
All dies used on this card are:
