Good morning blog friends....

I hope you all have had a good weekend and the weather was good for you

For today's card I used an 8" square ivory card base and made smaller panels of black and ivory

I then added the pretty paper that reminds me of lace and distress the edges a little

The frame was a little challenge in that I die cut it 6 times in ivory card and once with black card.  I need height to the frame but due to the design I was unable to add any mounting foam!  I do like the die.  I added the black card under the top layer to give a shadow effect as well as distressing all the edges

The tag is from the same die set, die cut in black, again for a shadow effect then ivory

The orange flowers are from the first Crafter's Companion Monthly Kit (I haven't bought further since)  the other roses and leaves from my stash

I will be decorating the inside of the card once I decide where it's going

  • ivory card - Craft UK Ltd
  • black card - Creative Expressions
  • lacey paper - First Edition 8"x8" paper pad 'Mulberry Kisses' 
  • orange flowers - Crafter's Companion
  • black soot distress oxide - Tim Holtz
  • die set - Amazon- ?HobbyHouse
  • sentiment - unknown
Until tomorrow....

  1. Love the 'vintage' look you have crated here June! The 'lacy' paper is beautiful! Such a useable layout - ideal to keep 'in store' for any occasion!

  2. Hi June this is a stunning card. I love it. Take care. Hugs Jackie

  3. Beautiful card, love the Lacey look paper and the flowers are gorgeous. Super card all together

  4. This is gorgeous, but wow...cutting the frame 6 times must have been a real chore! I can see that you can't use foam tape on this openwork design though.

  5. A beautiful card June. In those colours it could even be a C card!

  6. Gorgeous card June, just my cuppa, xxx
