Happy Sunday everyone. I had a lovely day yesterday. I was made to feel very special.
Today sees the start of a new challenge on the Scribble and Scrap Challenge blog. The theme is always anything goes and there is a prize so it is worth having a go.
This card was made for a commission. The inspiration came from the pattern on a mug the lady who wanted the card made shared with me to show her friend's taste.
The background was made with striplet die Eternal Rings by Sue Wilson it was cut three times without the cutting edge to make the lattice. I found a patterned paper to put behind and then I used CS Pearl PVA glue to add the pearls. This was left to dry for a few hours while I did the rest of the cutting.
To cut the name I used my Tonic letter dies.
This was made with one of Sue Wilson's Flag dies and Britannia word dies. I love the piercing round the flag.
I made the flowers with the Tim Holtz's Tattered florals Sizzix die, The centres were made with a Spellbinders die. Some CS pearl PVA was added to the centre of the flowers.
I made a matching box for the present I had to use two sheets of A1 card to make the box.
I am a very lucky lady. For my birthday my mother-in-law gave me the rest of the money to buy the ScanNcut. In fact she gave it to me a few weeks before this meant I was able to take advantage of a very good offer. The Happy Birthday is an included file and the first thing I cut with the macine. I think it is going to be very useful.
I would like to enter this card for the Crafting Musketeers Challenge this month the theme is Use a Die-cut.
Have a wonderful day today.
