... are sent today to Suzz, my fellow CR84FN DT buddy. I know that Suzz has actually got the card already - so I'm not spoiling any surprise. Do drop by Suzz's blog and leave her some love!!
I used our CR84FN39 colours - yellow, orange and brown - such warm, rich colours. There's still plenty of time to join in the fun.
I started off with a bright orange card base (and matching envelope). I attached a brown mat leaving a thin orange border and on top I layered some pale orange mulberry paper - just love the texture in this paper. I stamped the lovely sunflower image three times and used Promarkers to colour it in. I cut the base layer out using my oval nesties and then cut two layers so that I could decoupage the flower head. I layered the sunflower onto a brown beaded oval and I ran a pale yellow gingham ribbon through the holes. I like this effect. Finally, I added a simple sentiment by stamping directly onto the mulberry paper.
