The Works

This card has a bit of everything in it and I just love how this card turned out. I was at my upliners Sue Madex borrowing ribbon yet again yesterday and she was showing me all the lovely swap cards from the Incentive Trip she went on. A couple of cards used flowers that had a double image which I thought looked great so I had to make one and try it out.

As with most of my cards they start off simple and then I keep adding layers. I thought I would do the flower through a window so when you open the card you have this lovely 3D flower

I had my daughter Rebecca on the job here she is both holding and photographing the picture as you all know my photography skills are not the best so she has taken lots of photos from all different angles. After doing the flower I thought it needed a bit of a lift so I put Crystal Effects on the flower and before it dried I added a bit of chunky glitter in the middle. (Oops there is still a little bit of pencil mark left) I definitely had to use the Stamp-A-Ma-jig(who thinks up these names) to get this positioned in the middle of the window.

Then I thought the front needed something extra so out came the punches. First the round punch and the scallop circle punch for around the window, then came the oval punch and the scallop oval punch for around the stamp "Fabulous Friends from the Oval All set. I actually coloured that little flower in with my markers and put Crystal Effects on that as well.

Next came the Eyelet Punch along with Pink Pirouette cardstock and some ribbon and the beautiful Bella Rose DSP. A very pretty card for someone special.
