Beautiful Blooms to send you on your way...

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

Well the working week is well and truly under way. I had such a fun filled crafty weekend it was hard to go back to work and settle back into routine. It is nice to have good things to look back on and to look forward to.

We are getting near the end of term and a few people are leaving. This means there are a few leaving cards to make. In fact I shared one last week. The one I am sharing today is an A4 version. There is lots of room for signing inside.


It might not look it but is definitley A4. The best thing is I downloaded a cutting file from the internet put it on my ScanNcut and I had a beautiful trellis for the background. I cut two and cut of a side from each and overlapped them to cover the whole card. I stuck the trellis to a patterned vellum. 


The flowers were cut from white pearlised paper with my Tattered Floral Bigz dies. They were coloured with Distress ink and shaped with a ball tool. The centres were cut with a small Spellbinders die that came from another flower set. I used CS Pearl PVA in the centre of the flowers. The green flourishes were made with a Tonic die. 


The sentiment was cut with  Signature die.


I used so many snippets making this card I would like to enter it for Pixie's Snippets Playground weeks 181 / 182.

I would also like to enter this for challenge 26 at Crafting Musketeers - Shades of Summer

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

Such a gorgeous card with a real English rose garden feel. The flowers are gorgeous with the striking black middles. The traditional paper in the background suits the card perfectly. I would melt if I received this card!!!
