Good morning fellow crafters and bloggers, Alison here :) and what sweet entries we have had so far this week in our 'For Mum' challenge. You still have plenty of time to join in, and you can just link your entry here.
Now I had a blast making this card, as it was really something different for me. I usually have some kind of image as a focal point on my cards, but seriously these dies are so gorgeous, they can take the limelight all on their own!! I dont think it looks like its missing anything at all, and it really was effortless to create something that just fell together so well.
I hand stitched my papers and tucked 2 contrasting layers of one of my favourite border dies - the Anastasia border - its so delicate!.
I cut out 2 hearts in ivory pearl card - the bottom layer is one of the
DL106 - Heart to Heart Lace Doily dies, and the top heart is the largest of the DL128 - Two of Hearts. I thought they worked lovely together :)
I then added B117 - Fanciful Flourish, as a base to lay my flowers on which were cut from D137 - Sweet Williams, B149 - Cuties 1 and B150 - Cuties 2.
Other dies used on this project are:
I hope you find time to play along with our challenge this week, and I look forward to seeing some fab entries. Dont forget, there is also daily inspiration from the other talented members of the DT over on our Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration Blog
Have a smashing week, and thanks so much for visiting today.
