This is actually my second card. I used the Top Note die cut from first (see below) as the main focal point. Isn't this paper beautiful? It's from the fabby Sale-A-Bration set of papers called Sycamore Street. You can earn this set free when you spend £45 during Sale-A-Bration. Drop me an email on email@example.com to place your order.
I mounted it onto Sahara Sand and used my Paper Snips to trim to shape. I then attached it to a panel of Summer Starfruit. The sentiment panel is from Vintage Verses and stamped in Tangerine Tango. I snipped a banner and then roughed up the edges with my Paper Snips. I also roughed the edge of my card base. I added 3 medium Basic Pearls along the bottom.
My second card (actually the first I made!) has a mat of Summer Starfruit then I used the Bigz Top Note to die cut a panel of Sycamore Street. A second die cut of Whisper White was inserted back into the space. My far side was a little uneven so I added a strip of patterned paper to cover it up. I stamped the whisper white panel with the Bloomin' Marvelous stamps. Clear embossing some of the leaves. I added the largest of the Basic Pearls along the bottom so they stood out. I wasn't sure if this was CAS enough for either of the challenges and so created the top card.
Both very different yet following the same two challenges.
I was at my Jazzercise class this morning. My neighbour runs a brilliant class in the local Village hall. Today to my surprise one of the songs featured Pachelbel's Canon. A beautiful piece of music which I had as my Bridal March. How weird to be doing a Jazzercise routine to it!
Take care, keep cosy. xx
