Hi everybody. I am back today with a floral card made with Crafty Individuals stamp Spring Flower Garden bought recently and used for the first time here, and a square birds and flowers frame die which I bought some time ago and have only just got around to using, and unfortunately it doesn't seem to be available anywhere now.
I die cut the frame from white card and being quite intricate it did take several goes to get it to cut properly. I then stamped the flowers on to my base card using Versafine Olympia Green and coloured them with Distress Inks and a waterbrush, also used a bit of blue for the background. I then stuck down the frame over the top of the flowers using wet glue. As I had placed the flowers so that the base of the stamp was hidden beneath the frame, some of the flowers were rather hidden by the leaves and flowers on the frame, so I did snip one or two away from the bottom part so that the flowers were much more visible. I finished by adding white gel pen to the flower centres, and a sentiment banner strip again using the Olympia Green ink, and then heat embossed with WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder.
Thanks again for visiting my blog and I'll see you again soon.
