MANY HAPPY RETURNS & FRIDAY FREEBIE

Good morning craft friends....

Well, today's card has colours I wouldn't normally put together!  But, in 'the flesh' it looks 'pretty' according to hubby!

I must say the two dazzlers in the centre stamped flowers are exactly the same colour as the smaller ones dotted around the card!  Even the three at the top look a totally different colour to the bottom two!  How the colour changes so drastically when a photograph is taken beats me! 

The base card is a 5" square  pale peach card with the same size and colour top panel.  The panel was cut at an angle to reveal the stamped images underneath

In issue 193 of Simply Cards & Papercraft there is a gorgeous A4 stamp set and I used one of the larger flower 
stamps for this design.  I used a Memento ink pad in 'sweet plum' and coloured the flowers using one water coloured pencil.  I also, gently, brushed the 'sweet plum' ink over the top of the roses

Copper bronze card was added behind the diagonal panels and the sentiment

In the same magazine there are some beautiful papers and toppers.  I used some of the paper for the inside of the card as well as the 'Special wishes' tag

To complete I stamped the front and back of the matching envelope

  1. Very eye-catching - eye is drawn to the flowers at the top left. I did a card like this at a workshop in Doncaster a couple of years ago - such a useful design for many different occasions!
    Thanks for reminding me!

  8. Oh, this is such a unique card design with that angled cutout to show off the stamped florals behind it. I almost never think to decorate the inside of a card but it really does a beautiful, finished look.

  9. This is such a beautiful card and I really love the pink flowers. That is strange how the purple embellishments look like two different colors but I've had problems with color coming out strange in photos as well. Either way though, they are the perfect detail.
