This card came together really quickly. I really like the simplicity of the design and these colours are just gorgeous! There is a subtle tone-on-tone pattern in the backing paper that's really pretty with lots of flowers and leaves. I cut the elegant frame using the largest of the Floral Oval dies. I made the central panel by cutting around the inside of the die with a scalpel, then I embossed it and added some colour to highlight the pattern. The elegant lady is a free stamp that came with a UK craft magazine. I stamped the image in Rich Cocoa and coloured with Promarkers, adding a touch of sparkle on the edge of her shawl and on the trim to her dress. I used a scalpel to cut out the image as I wanted it to look like she's standing in front of the panel. I stamped Best Wishes into the corner. Clean, simple and elegant - just like Ben's grandmother.
Have a great day - see you soon.
