Fantastic Day

Morning my crafting friends, hope you are all safe and well. Thank you for visiting my blog and for all the wonderful comments you make, I do hope you like what you see and do come back to view more.

A very warm welcome to Sam, great to have you on board, if you have a blog please do let us know so I can return the favour.

Now for todays card I have used the free die you got from Tattered lace Magazine No 2. Its a beautiful, delicate die and a lovely shape. 

I first die cut two of the dies using Crafters Companion Centura Pearl card sliver, this enabled me to then measure how big of card I would need for mounting/framing. I cut a piece of CC Centura card big enough to leave a boarder around the die cuts and matted this up with some free paper from the Tattered Lace Magazine, I attached the die cuts in the center with PVA glue.
I cut a frame out of more of the CC Centura Pearl card Silver and attached this over the top using foam pads.  I chose some flowers out of my stash ( I made these awhile back using SB Delicate Asters and CE Foundations Card) and placed these in the bottom corner of my card. Instead of adding some leaves I decided to add the little strimmers of card that actually came out of parts of the die, I felt they looked good amongst flowers, like long twigs!
For the finishing touch I added a sentiment that was from an old Hunkydory card kit and there you have the finished card.

Card dimensions 6 X 6.

Thank you for looking, Jacquie xxx
