Flowers for a friend

Hello lovely people,

It's a doubly exciting Friday today as I have next week off work and I am sharing a card that I am really really pleased with, using some gorgeous new stash :-)

This is my Dies to Die For DT card this week so as usual you can find all the product links at the end of my post.

These floral stamps and dies were a big hit with quite a few of the DtDF DT and I have to say I was smitten too!  I tried stamping them in different colour inks on different colours of card and colouring with different mediums, and all versions looked lovely!

I had to pick just one though for my first card and decided to go with white heat embossing on Kraft with Copic colouring.

I was delighted when I found the perfect matching papers to use with the Kraft flowers and then even more so when I realised my new word dies would look lovely on here...it's fab when a card just comes together so nicely!

As you can see I got a little dimension in here too by layering some of the flowers on different heights of foam pads and stacking up 3 of each of the letters.

Oh wow! Kat this is such a striking card! Love the white embossing on the kraft and copics, who knew that could work so well?! Well, obviously you!! Isn't it fun to play and work these things out?! Utterly love this hun, an elegant, gorgeous, beautiful creation. Hope you enjoyed your week off. Did Dr Hubby get a break too? Sometimes it's just nice to potter on your own though. Hope it was fab. Mine was spent nursing a poorly wee boy. Dr's thought it was measles, so we've been locked indoors all week on some of the hottest Summer days we've had! Bah! So good to be able to get out again. Hugs, Wends xoxo

Wow Kat! Very striking. White embossing on Kraft is very effective, but die-cutting the images & layering really increases the impact. Mum x
