Firstly, a big thank you to Heather for becoming my first follower. I only noticed this morning so thought that I had better pop another card on the blog sharpish..........oooh, the responsibility!
Secondly, I apologise for my lack of David Baileyesque photo skills on some of my pics as some were just quick snapshots before blog creation was a twinkle in my eye (or a pain in my............laptop!)
My friend asked me to make this for her relative's birthday a couple of months ago. She wanted it fairly flat (we are all more postage conscious, I guess, these days) and covered in flowers.
I started with an 8x8 card base cut from an A3 sheet of white hammered card, then rounded the corners. The next layer is also white card with rounded corners and on the top portion, I have cut out the Spellbinders Fancy Lattice to make it look like a trellis. On the base card, I inked the bit that will be seen under the trellis with a pale pink ink.
Next, I cut a job lot of flowers from the Spellbinders Jewels and Flourishes set, in different coloured card along with two of the large flourish in white. Also, I cut the leaves from the Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms set.
I glued the flowers, leaves and flourishes to the trellis layer, added a little bling to the flower centres and corner, foam padded the layer then added it to the base card.
The sentiment was stamped and heat embossed onto a label from the Spellbinders Labels Eight set. I then "nipped" a bit of the lattice so that I could seat the foam pad on the sentiment on the base card rather than flattening the lattice (Hope that makes sense)
That's todays hurried offering as I have just got back from the dentist (booooooo) and I have some washing to hang out before the next instalment of rain/hail/snow/locusts (delete as applicable in your area). I also need to feed Mr & Mrs B, our resident blackbirds, who have nested in our garden for about 4 years now. They have beautiful babies and they come for their chopped up grapes and strawberries, at least 3 times a day.........in fact, Mr Duck thinks the Bs get better and more frequent feeding than he does lol !!!
