See the Flowers...

Happy Thursday,

Another card made using the Scene card box die today there will a quite a few of these popping up over the next couple of weeks as I loved making them!

If you missed the video yesterday you can view it here as well as on my you tube channel HERE

Todays card uses the same technique to make the bike iwever I have altered the front by adding a window through this using my media plate rectangle die set.

I stared by cutting the Holly and Ivy die set in gold mirror card.  I spray glued this to a piece of white card and cut the panel out using the rectangle di in the Scene card box die set.  I then cut the centre with the oval die from the media plate die set adding a gold layer cut with the smaller stitched die in the set.

For the inside I embossed a piece cut with the sane rectangle from the set and slid this onto the box.  I used the waste form the front ( the gold and white ovals) and matted and layers these into the centre.  I then simply added the Holly and Ivy sentiment form the Holly and Ivy set and the poinsettias.

I stamped the poinsettias in gold izink pigment ink onto vellum then cut the whole set out using the matching die. I made up three flowers adding white micro beads in the centre of each flower.  I arranged these to one side on gold Ivy cut form them mini swirl ivy dies included in the holy and Ivy die set.

I love the way you can see the sentiment through the window on the front but the flowers wont get crushed!
