Autumn Flowers

Hi Everybody,

Last week I made a card for the magazine freebies and in it I water coloured some flowers in shades of brown and mustard and I really liked the look that they gave.

The video was SC&P162 Build a Bouquet  and these are the flowers that were started in the film

So I decided to make a card from the whole panel and I quite like this one with the added lace along the bottom

I simply cut the flowers out with circle die from the piece that I started to colour in the video and then used a larger circle to cut the gold mat

I used the piece as part of my design and matted it onto more gold card

Once layered up with the circle elements no one will know that there is a hole in the under layer ... but I have made use of the embossing and splattering that was done in the film

So two birds with one stone really as nothing has been wasted, and it makes a really pretty focal point for my card.   Swap out the sentiment and it could be for any occasion

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  11. Hi Christina
    Love your card and matting it onto gold really sets it off. I sometimes cut from the middle if the base layer as it can't be seen and saves on card.
    Best wishes

  20. Hi, Christina,
    I'm a day behind with my comment, sorry about that. I'm still getting over the disruption from Easter only to realise that it's yet another bank holiday on Monday lol. What a good job I don't work or I'd most likely turn up on the wrong days😃. This is a wonderful card, kiddo, I love the colours and those flowers are just beautiful.
