A little something just for you


It has been a few days since I have been in the craftroom and managed to get in here this morning!  I enjoyed making this floral card and drew inspiration from a few challenge sites - the floral theme comes from Quirky Crafts - handmade flowers and ribbon, what I did with the flowers comes from AnnaBelle Stamps - paper piecing, what I used came from Papertake Weekly Challenge - bingo and I used ribbon, diecut and button, I followed the sketch from Card Patterns #170 and included embossing for Crafty Catz.  Here is my card ...

for my handmade flower I stamped AnnaBelle Stamps 'daisy delights' on patterned papers (2 medium and 1 small), fussy cut all removing some petals from the 2nd medium and smallest flower, applied a broad tip embossing tool to the back of each flower so it curls and assembled togther with silicone sealant beneath the petals so that when the flower dries it still maintains its curvature even through the posting process! (using foam tape it tends to flatten out once it gets to its' final destination in the post) here is a close up ...
 
... an another showing the curvature - I even curved the 2 leaves and again used silicone sealant so that the curves in the leaves don't flatten out.
 
materials - wheat card, C'D dutchess cardstock; Cosmo Cricket 'tea for 2' papers; AnnaBelle Stamps 'daisy delights' and 'squared posies' (title); Staz On timber brown ink; MFT little open scalloped edge die; Quickutz polka dot embossing folder; Ranger white opal liquid pearls; Shamrock buttons; AnnaBelle Stamps natural cord; Twill - natural; silicone sealant.
Thanks for looking.
