Ice Silver Squares...

Happy Wednesday,

A little more complex card today as I feel I have been neglecting the Square Gerbera frame and I have had so much fun using it!

I started by cutting the Gerbera Square background die out of Ice Silver lustre print card.  I cut each palm out using the stitched square die included in the same set.  I flat mounted these onto more of the Ice Silver and foam mounted each square onto a larger 7" x7" square adding mats and layers to make this n 8" x 8" card when finished.

Next I cut the Gerbera Flower die twice to give me 12 flowers in two passes form one A5 piece of card ( well when its special card you want the most value from it!)  I shaped the flowers using a ball tool and made up six individual daisies I added glue in the centre and added Crafts Too white micro beads in the centre for texture.  I cut the matching Gerbera Leaves in more of the white twice giving me 6 sets of leaves( the other A5 piece of card was perfect for this agin great value)

I cut the With Love tag sentiment the outline and then the outline die with the stitched die together to make a frame and added all of these to make the sentiment tag with dimension.  I arranged this with the leaves and flowers around the left of the card creating a spray focul point.

A classic Me card I feel.

  14. Hi John
    What a gorgeous card today, so pretty. I haven't seen the frame die in real life yet and hadn't realised it's size, I thought it was much bigger from the photos. Isn't it lovely, i must have a think about getting that one when the craft spending pennies allow it.
    Love Diane x

  20. This is a beauty. I love that you used the square frame in quarters and using the silvery paper for everything gives it a very elegant, formal feel.
    I am arranging some of your embossed Gerberas on a card that I started yesterday and after seeing yours this morning I am borrowing a bit of your floral arrangement for my card. So much better!
    Have a wonderful day,
    Stephanie K

    A beautiful card John and so elegant. I'm hoping to get the Gerbera die for my 87th Birthday in two days time even if I have to buy it for myself.
    Thank you so much for sharing.
