A Little more seasonal...
I thought It was time I showed something a little more seasonal especially as Yesterday was the hottest day of the year so far and I was melting in the studio (Garage)! I liked the idea of rotating between Christmas and normal so I thought you might like to see this card! I can't promise I will switch between every day as this tomorrow and Saturday will be Christmas but I will try!
Today's card is simply made by stamping the Floribunda stamp to die for from Sues latest, non festive, release and colouring it using the fabulous Cosmic Shimmer watercolour palettes. I then cut the image out using the largest die form the Lisbon set and mounted it (without foam for once) on a piece of lilac foundation card.
To make the top piece I simply embossed a sheet of coconut white card with the A4 quilted leaves embossing folder and cut an aperture to one side again using the Lisbon die set. I then rubbed pewter gilding wax over the raised are and buffed it off with a dry wet wipe.
Hopefully you will agree this is an appropriate card for the weather!
