A few days ago I posted a card I was asked to make by my friend's husband for his wife. This is the card I made to give to her from me and my hubby. The colours are the same as the last card, because I know she loves turquoise.
I decided to make an easel card. The main image is a Sweet Poppy Stencil 'Honeysuckle Circle'. I put the white card and the metal stencil through my Big Shot with an embossing mat to get an embossed design. While the stencil was attached to the card, I used a dauber to dab blue Distress ink over the embossed design, before die cutting into a circle with a Creative Expressions 'Double Pierced Circle' die. The blue mat is SB Scalloped Circle die cut and the blue, embossed background was done with a SB 'Dainty Dots' embossing folder. I made the flowers using Sue Wilson, Creative Expressions 'Striped Nasturtiums' and 'Petite Vinery' dies. I added a few pearls, the blue ones were coloured with Promarkers to get the colour I wanted. The sentiment is raised up on foam pads to enable the card to stand up.
This is the side view of the card.
The stencil and Striped Nasturtiums are NBUS, so I'll be off to Darnell's NBUS Challenge with my third card.
