A Card for that Special Friend.

Good evening Peeps,

Well what a brilliant show it was on Create & Craft !   Sue from Imagination Crafts  managed to fit in so....many demonstrations in that hour!  and weren't all the Santa sleighs fabulous and all so different!   Tonight I have a card to share with you, I hope it may inspire you to have a go.   I have used Imagination Craft's  lovely new Art Cutz flower & leaves sets along with their new Alchemy wax.

Fold the white base card in half down the crease line, making a 7"x7" base card.   Matt a smaller square of black card onto the white, then a smaller piece of pink card onto the black.

Glue another piece of black card 3"x6" to the left hand side of the base card, leaving a narrow border showing around three sides.

Using a black ink pad, stamp the 'Friendship' stamp to the top right of the card and the 'Blossom by blossom' stamp to the bottom right.

                                     Glue three black rhinestones to the bottom right of the pink card.

 Paint the flourish from the Art Cutz butterflies set and a flower from the flower set and  a leaf from the leaves set, with black Gesso.   When dry, put the flower and the leaf through an embossing machine along with the daisy curl stencil and emboss.   Leave the flourish plain black and glue between the words 'Friendship' and 'Blossom by blossom.'   Glue a small pink ribbon bow to the centre of the flourish.

Take the flower and leaf and gently rub some silver Alchemy wax over the surface.   This gives them a metallic look.     Glue these onto the black panel.


                         Card finished, hope you like it.   I'll be back again soon, hope you will too.

                                                             Love and rainbows,

                                                        Happy Crafting,    Hugs  Jennifer xx.
