Thank you lilies
Hi there Fellow Crafters, Friends and Visitors,
The weather in our neck of the woods has not been good today, it has rained most of the day. I suppose I shouldn't grumble as we have had an exceptionally good year so far lol. At least we got our lawns cut before the rain arrived, hopefully that will be the last cut of the year.
I thought I would show you a card I made back in May 2011 for Sue and Harvey of Imagination Crafts. I love this stamp set, the lilies are very pretty. So here we go, this is how I made it.
I matted a piece of white card onto a black base card, leaving a border of black card showing. I then matted a piece of black card onto that and rounded off the corners using a corner rounder punch.
I used the flourish stamp from the set and made a square shaped border using a black inkpad. I then
overstamped the flourish with the dotted flourish stamp using a Versmark pad and heat embossed with gold embosing powder. I added the little dots stamp in four places and glued tiny gold seed beads to a few of the dots.
I then trimmed around the stamped shape and glued it to the base card. I added a gold circle to the centre of the card. and cut out a smaller black circle onto which I stamped the 'thank you' stamp heat embossing it with gold embossing powder. This was then glued onto the gold circle.
The lilies were stamped onto white card, coloured with a Promarker pen and gold seed beads added , then the lilies were glued to the bottom edge of the circle using silicone glue.
The ribbon was coloured with the Promarker pen to match the colour of the lilies. That's it guys, hope you all have a lovely weekend. Thanks so much for stopping by to visit my blog I love to hear what you think of my creations and I really do appreciate your lovely comments.
Take care of yourselves. Hugs Jennifer xx
