Hi there. Now it is early summer I have lots more anniversaries on the calendar to make cards for. I have used three NBUS dies too which are the Cape Daisies and Delicate Fronds which are by Sue Wilson from Creative Expressions, and an XCut nesting die set Ornate Frames.
I started with a snippet of white card cut into an approximate 6" square and embossed with a Docrafts Embossing Folder called Hearts and Kisses which is difficult to find at the moment. I extended it to make it square, and then using my brayer I inked it with some Peacock Feathers Distress Ink and made it slightly darker with Adirondack Eggplant Ink.
I then cut this piece with the Ornate Frames using the four largest dies. I then inked round the edges of the main mat and each of the die cuts with the Eggplant ink. I also cut the smallest die shape out of another snippet of white card and stamped a sentiment on to it also using the Eggplant ink.
I die cut two of the Cape Daisy flowers and one of the delicate fronds and blended the same two inks on to them using some blending foam. I cut the frond into several pieces so I could frame the flower.
I finished by adhering the nested die shapes by size and replaced the smallest patterned piece with the sentiment plate in the centre, and layered up the flowers and fronds on to a corner of the Ornate Frames.
Thank you for stopping by today and I hope to see you again soon.
