This is another of those late at night inspirations. I loved what I saw over on Muse
This card is done my Jenni Murray, and I love the three little squares. I thought on it off and on over the week but had Dad's 90th birthday to deal with so it wasn't till tonight that an idea actually came to mind.
I used a die that cuts out the 3 curved squares.
I decided to add acetate to the inside so I could use a bigger flower and it could be supported on the front of the card. I stamped 'My Friend' on the inside of the card and lined it up so you could see both words when the card is shut.
I put some leaves on the inside on the stem and one on the outside on the acetate.
I then put a slightly smaller flower on the inside and it was able to sit at the top of the stem. This is not the flower for the leaves or stem/sentiment but it was what I wanted to use.
From here you can see the flower on the front and inside the card.
Here you can the acetate behind the flower and the lovely shimmer on the flower which was watercoloured with Zig Markers and Wink of Stella pen.
I also decided to add some patterned paper along the side but wanted to do full length as it just didnt look right as 2/3rds. I then added a pelmet along the top of a die cut piece of pale yellow paper that went with the stripes. Hence they now look like curtains in a formal room.
Finished off by stamping 'Seriously You're The Best' at the bottom. I really like how this turned out. When the card is shut you only see the top flower but when opened the inside flower allows the stem and leaves to be connected to something.
So I took my inspiration from the pale yellow patterned paper; the three little squares and the lone flower.
Would like to add this to :
There we go, all done and still 2 hrs to go. Thank you so much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.
