Morning all....

A rather colourful card for this week's 'freebie'

This is a 7" card  and I scored and cut a 'Z' fold on the front of it

A strip of pretty designer paper was adhered to the right hand side and I used a Distress Oxide in 'seedless preserve' to stamp the image.  I chose that as it goes well with the colour of the flowers on the paper design

The sentiment, by Creative Expressions, was stamped and heat embossed 

I used the Fmm air drying clay to make the flowers and cut several in various shapes and sizes.  These were left overnight to dry thoroughly then I coloured them using several colours in the distress oxide range

I added several colours of Tonic's NUVO Drops to the flower centres and a few on the inside of the 'Z' fold

The package that the card will be in will also include a box for when the winner sends/passes it onto their recipient

You may be pleased to know that the card is not heavy at all because of using the clay to make the flowers

As usual you have until 6pm Friday to comment on this card should you like your name added to the draw

The winner will be notified on Saturday's blog

We ship internationally at our expense too

Until tomorrow....

  1. Yet another lovely card with a different take on the usual 'june' flowers. Ive not used this product, im guessing its very light in weight once dried - ill have to check it out. Im amazed at all the products you use and alot of them ive never heard of xxx

    1. Thank you Pam

      The product is extremely light and very easy to work with. Once the flowers were coloured and dry I sprayed them with a pearl spray I would normally use on my cakes.... I forgot to mention that in the description above! x

  2. Love FMM clay!! A different take ona Z fold card - the flowers add detail to a simple design! Thanks June!

  3. It is a beautiful card June. I dont have any Oxides but I have used one of my craft club ladies's and love them. xxx

    1. Thank you Wendy

      I love using the distress oxides, they are great for blending too x

  4. I haven't used this clay but it certainly produces beautiful embellishments. Have just bought some Oxides and still experimenting. Thank you June.

  5. Hi June,
    what a very stunning creation and such a lovely design.
    Those flowers are so pretty and gorgeous.
    I have not heard of that clay is it like the paper clay ?
    I too love my oxides only have 4 colours but use them together to create lots of other colours as you will see in my card today.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
