Red and Cream . . . . . hopefully a dream

Good morning my blogging chums. Hope you are all keeping warm and cosy. Its been more wet than anything in this end of the pond. . . . . . .supposedly weather for ducks but not for this one, I can assure you. I don't think that I'm as waterproof as I used to be lol !!!
After seeing the news, I hope that Val is safe on her sojourn to Egypt and I hope that Jacquie is milking getting the washing up done for all its worth. Now would be a good time to hint at a dishwasher. The fellas tend to be more receptive to large white goods when they have had to do the job for a few days.

Now today's card was made because I wanted to use this particular piece of paper. 
The base is 6x6 cream card topped with a sheet of First Edition Neroli paper (adore this pad).
I then cut a slightly smaller piece of red card and cut an aperture using one of the SB Decorative Labels 28 and also two apertures using the leafy die from the SB Botanical Swirls and Accents set.
I then stamped "Happy Birthday" in Versamark and clear heat embossed as I wanted it to look subtle. 

I cut a SB Medallion One out of red card and the HC Sunkissed Fleur set from cream card
I foam padded the red layer to the base, then foam padded the Medallion in the centre of the aperture. I shaped and assembled the flowers and popped them in the corner, also with the red leafy cuts from doing the apertures.

Bits of bling added and twas done!

Thanks for popping by and for your lovely comments. Be good and lets be careful out there (and if you spot a pair of pink wellies poking out from under a hedge, run for your life and don't look back hahaha!!!

  3. Gorgeous card Ang! I love the negative die cut leaves behind the flowers. That medallion looks amazing too! Try to stay dry! We're enjoying 80 mph winds here. Backyard is full of broken tree branches. The joys of living on the east side of the mountains. Have a great day!

  4. Morning Ang,

    WOW! STUNNING! AMAZING! So, so beautiful Gal, love everything about it, colour, papers, they are gorgeous, the die cuts, colour and the 'Happy Birthday'. Brilliant work. I hope you enjoyed making it as much as we have seeing it lol!

    The guys are starting to get grumpy, especially when I remind them the washing up needs to be done around 10pm!!! I do dry up for whoever washes lol! Thanks for the nod on a dishwasher but I don't like them, prefer to wash up by hand...mens hands at the moment lol! Wound still not completely healed, its still a little open so had to keep it wrapped...really, honestly, much to the dismay of the men lol!!!

    Take care, oh its raining ducks here Ang.

    Love & Hugs

  7. If I spotted your pink wellies out of the bottom of a hedge, I'd like to think I'd rescue you and pull you out! Love the card, the flowers set it off beautifully.

  10. Hi Ang, what a clever little duck you are, I love the way you have cut out the leaves from the card to form the design and then used them with the flowers, best wishes Jackie

  13. Hi Ang
    This is such a clever card. I would never have thought of creating an aperture with the leaves. This works so well. I love the flowers too. I have the same flower die, but mine have never looked like that. Did you use a special paper stock? Great design.
