FOR SOMEONE SPECIAL

Good morning everyone!  It's good to be back, but please bear in mind there may be the odd day when I'm unable to post. I'm hoping today is the day I get the final result regarding my neck problem
I thought I would start the week with a 'fresh' look and chose green as it always appeals to me as clean and fresh

I used a white 6" square scalloped card base and one of the largest dies in the Tonic Craft Kit 18 to create the pretty edge on the card front

I then used 2 pieces of decorative papers from the June 2016 edition of Making Cards, I added a little colour on the edges using a NUVO Hybrid ink pad in 'Lime Burst', then adhered them to card, I cut a narrow piece of green card and embossed it using Creative Expressions 'Falling Snow' embossing folder.  I used the same green card for the inside

I made 3 flowers using CE's 'Perfect Peony Complete Petals'.  I die cut these from white card and added colour using Ranger's Distress Oxide in 'Twisted Citron'.  I didn't want the whole of the flower to be one dense colour so in places I left the petals partially white

I added NUVO Dream Drops in 'Supernova' to the centre of the flowers and onto either end of the sentiment.  The sentiment stamp was also part of the Tonic Craft Kit 18 too
On this photo you can see the green card on the inside

I also made a matching envelope

Until later....

  4. Welcome back June, you have been sooo missed and I don't mean just your cards. Let's hope you've just had a 'little' (not so little) hiccup to the start of the year and that things will start to look up for you.
    AS for your card, as can only be expected, it's beautiful and would be so appropriate for you. Xxx

Good morning all I've been unable to craft for a few days as I 'stumbled' and broke several nails to the point the nail bed...
