Well, hey sweet friends! I’ve been one busy girl and I’ve been keeping a teensy little surprise under my hat. I have a crazy wonderful announcement coming up and I’ll be back to share a little bit about it in the coming days. In the meantime, today is Day of Giving Friday which means that one of you readers who leaves a comment, gets to win this card. My card today is a thank you card using with my favorite Thanks from Quietfire Design and my favorite to make flowers using Spellbinders Contour Layered Blooms – you can see a no fail way to make the flowers HERE.
This is a relatively simple card. I started out with a 5 x 7 card based and layered in some gold mats. For the background I’m using a digital paper from a sweet friend Iralajima who sells on Etsy. Overtop I layered Spellbinders Vertical Chain and then placed this lace motif from my stash and it seemed like the perfect place :-) I made three flowers using my Spoon Flower Technique, and varied the size, one medium, one small and one tiny. Last but not least I pulled the banner from Spellbinders Decorative Swallowtail Tags to stamp my sentiment.
