Shabby Blue...

Happy Sunday,

A simple card to share with everyone today made with just the Gerbera Lattice background die.


I simply embossed a piece of the shaded Velum I had on the last Hochanda show using the Gerbera lattice die which embossed the pattern into the emu and cut the flowers in places giving a neat but shabby background.

I wrapped pieces of organza ribbon around this and added flowers at the meeting point.  The flowers were made by cutting the remains of the velum using the lattice die and cutting the flowers out.  I grouped and shaped these adding a Crafts Too Diamond in the centre of each.

A few mats and layers and a simple, shabby but hopefully elegant card is finished.

Enjoy...

  20. Hello John,
    This is exquisite!!!
    Sorry I've been AWOL with the dreaded lurgie but have been scrolling down to see the cards I've missed and have to say that yesterday's where you were unsure of the colour is beautiful. In fact all your cards are gorgeous, a bit like you ha ha.

    Beautiful card. I haven't yet tried vellum and I think maybe I'm getting a bit 'long in the tooth' to keep trying new things.
    Hope you enjoyed your day off John.
