Good afternoon craft friends...

I have been doing a' tidy' on my craft papers as I knew there were lots of pretty papers that had not seen the light of day and have made a decision to use two per week, well, hopefully, at least one per week!  So here is the start

Most of my 12"x12" papers have been bought in Canada each year when visiting my dear aunt and this paper is one.  A very pretty peachy/apricot, I love the mottled colours

I have used a DL white card base and used one of the double pierced ovals to die cut the paper then the centre of the 'Cathedral Background' plus the first size outer cutting die (from the same die set) to die cut the decorative design, in white card, prior to adhering it to the paper

I used a selection of flowers to create the floral display

There was a little of the paper left over and I stamped one of the sentiments from the 'Inspirational Sentiments' onto the paper using Jet Black StazOn Ink

I used the outer die from the Frame One Die Set to die cut the frame on white card then added mounting foam to the back.  I then used the inner die  from the same set, to die cut the sentiment, once cut I adhered it to the white frame and glued it towards the bottom of my card  

I added a little glue randomly to the flowers then sprinkled them with glitter jewels but have yet to insert  paper and a verse to the inside of the card

  • DL white card base ~ 21cmx10cm

  5. Lovely Card June. Thank you for sharing this.

  6. Beautiful card, June, such a pretty and feminine design. xx

  7. I love that soft peach with the white die cutting and flowers. I think we all have a stash, or two or three of pretty papers that we haven't used yet, so great idea to start using them on a regular basis. I'm wondering how you send these cards with 3-D florals on them through the mail, or do you save them to give only in person?

    1. Thank you Karen

      I do my best to give this sort of card to family/friends, but, I do have card boxes and have sent them via royal mail


  8. Such a clean looking card June - so pretty. Love the Cathedral die - o h no - maybe need it!!!!

  9. This is absolutely beautiful June. The background colour and flowers co-ordinate perfectly x
