A card made with the Don and Daisy stamp 'Coffee time' or tea time here in England.
I framed it with the MD Passe Partout die.
I layered the stripe backing paper onto orange card followed by the pink floral paper.
For the embellishments I added an orange ribbon, a pink fabric flower, tulips cut from MD die LR0209, tea set from LR0315 with some pastries made from polymer clay which I have from when I used to make miniature food for dolls houses. I finished with 3 small black pearls.
The next card was me with too much time on my hands, so I was playing around with different techniques and materials.
I used a mask and homemade texture paste for the wire mesh and homemade crackle paste for the heart with the sentiment (need to practice this). I stamped embossed and cut out the dragonfly, made the daisies and used some flower soft to give some texture to the centres.
Close up of some or the elements.
I enjoyed making this though it took a lot longer than the first card.
I was inspired to make this card by the Cute Card Thursday Challenge as I do like to use lace in my cards when appropriate.
I distressed the edges of the pink backing paper and layered onto dark red card. Then I cut a strip of patterned paper, distressed and stuck down one side. Then I added the lace top and bottom.
I cut a scalloped heart out of patterned paper and a fancy Die Sire heart out of pink Centura card. Also a corner out of the pink card with MD LR0143.
The large rose and pink buds were bought. The smaller flowers and leaves were made with a punch and the cream leaves with MD dies LR 0156 and LR0157.
I used an Anja Label MD LR0241 and embossed the sentiment in silver. I cut a butterfly out of cream card and pink vellum and finished the card with assorted hearts including a metal heart below the flower.
