Here is my card this month:
You all know that I love my square cards and this fold really lends itself to square cards. . . so I stuck with what I know. . .
Beate Johns has been a long time favourite of mine - I love her style and she always amazes me with her creativity. I followed Beate's tutorial on how to make the Big Buckle Card on Splitcoast Stampers and simply adjusted the measurements for a square card. My front panel is 8.5cm from the fold.
The daisy stamp from the Daisy Delight stamp set is super cute. I heat embossed the flower in white and used emboss resist technique to add a touch of colour (Berry Burst) to the centre of the daisy. I wiped off the excess colour with a wet wipe to pop the white emboss on white card stock. The beauty is that this particular stamp has a matching punch - so I punched out the flowers with the punch, bent up the petals a little to give it some depth and stuck two of the stamped punched images on top of each other. I thought the Silver Faceted Gem was a great centre for the flower. I also scattered some Rhinestones as well to bling it up.
Heat embossing always wows people and I love how the white embossed flowers and leaves from the Wood Words set looks stamped on the ombre DSP from the Colour Theory Designer Series Paper Stack. I have stamped this image twice and masked the second stamp using a post it note so that the stamped image was well within the parameters of the DSP.
Don't leave us now. My beautiful friend Tanja Kolar is next in the hop and her creation is so cute!
