MAY YOUR DAY BLOOM WITH HAPPINESS
Good morning crafters and blog friends....
I hope you all had a good weekend and the coming week is kind to you
The paper I've used on today's card has been in one of my stash boxes for sometime and I thought it was time to put it to good use, as opposed to coming across it once in a while, giving it a stroke and thinking I will use that soon! I no longer remember from where it was bought or if it came as a freebie with one of the magazines
Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine how much craft goodies I would gather over the years and that is why I never named dies etc etc as, foolishly, I always thought I would remember the names. I am in the process of rectifying this, it should only take me 10 years ;) I'm joking but I am sorting my goodies
So, enough of this chit chat and onto the card:
I used a white 5"x7" card base and added a smaller panel of black card
A smaller panel of the blue paper was then adhered to the card
I made two aster flowers from white card and deliberately left parts of the petals white for a more natural look. The stamens were also left white
The sentiment was stamped then a piece of double sided adhesive sheet was placed over it then die cut. Once die cut I removed the adhesive sheet and added glitter jewels over the whole area. Mounting foam was added to the back then placed onto the card
To complete the front I added white pearls to two corners
I used a flower punch on the white insert then adhered it inside the card
A verse will be added at a later date
I've still a little of the blue paper left so I cut two pieces to fit on the bottom corners of the envelope
