There is a little bit of an autumnal feel to todays card but I think its just the colour change the shades and this would look really spring like.
I started by cutting a square of coconut white foundation card with the noble double pierced squares and then cut the outline die from the Lucy frames and take set into this. I backed this with a piece of tan card and cut the detail and the next outline die from the set into the correct place in the piece. next I cut a larger square of papyrus foundation card and cut the outline into this so it sat behind the tan pattern finally I cut the final die in the set in white and phone mounted all of the pieces together as shown.
For the background I cut a piece of tan using a larger square die from the noble set and whilst in the die embossed the piece using the honeycomb haven A4 embossing folder, this technique gives a beautiful debossed pattern.
I made up a spray of flowers using the chrysanthemum die in various colours from the card and backed this with the lace edged leaves cut in papyrus.
Finally I added different sized and coloured gasless to the centres of the flowers and a few mats Andreas to frame and finish the card.
