Something New...

Happy New Year (2 days late I Know!)

I have taken a break from crafting for the Christmas period until yesterday (today when I'm Writing this) and have just dropped Mr Next Door off at the airport allowing me to get straight back to the craft room.  Todays offering is totally new and was made in the last few minutes.  Now I have had loads of ideas floating round my head for the last week and this card was one of them.  However this simply did not turn out How I wanted!  Im sorry if this one disappoints.

A very simple card with die cutting and stamping using simple blue and cream card and a blue chalk inkpad.




Dies used are Spellbinders Gold elements one and cherry blossom dies ( for the flowers)

More tomorrow, Enjoy...

  12. Hi John
    This is a beautiful card! I like the way you have set the background within the frame rather than matted on top. How did you secure it?
    Best wishes
