And again ...

This is very similar to the Blossom card in my previous post, but this time I cut my daisies using a Spellbinders die and embossed them with my Wizard.
The Blossom papers from Craftwork Cards are great as the colours co-ordinate brilliantly.

And even more Blossom

Back to a square card blank this time I'm still coming up with ideas using the Blossom papers - they really are very versatile and co-ordinate with each other beautifully. I've used two die cut daisies again, scored down the centre of the petals and stuck them together. These flowers are quick to make but look good.
I especially like the combination of hot pink and chocolate brown on this card.

Happy Birthday

Another DL card today made with Blossom papers, Card Candy and an In Circle message mounted on a punched scalloped circle.

This was quick and easy to make but I think it looks effective. The Blossom papers are one of my favourites at the moment.

Thank You

Back to a square card blank again for this card. I used three strips of Blossom papers for the background. I scored the petals of four die cut daisies down the centres, folded the petals on the score lines and then stuck two together fo make one flower. The flowers were finished off with Card Candy centres.

I punched a scallop circle in card that matches the daisies, stuck an In Circle Message in the centre and used foam pads to stick it to the card. To finish off I added 3 pieces of Card Candy in the bottom corner.

To a Very Special Friend

I used a DL card blank for a change on this card - I mainly tend to use square cards. The papers are Blossom from Craftwork Cards - I really love this range.
The daisy is mounted on foam pads to give some dimension as is the pink oval which I punched out with a Stampin' Up punch.

Sketch Card Week 3

I made this for week 3 of the card challenge on the Craftwork Cards blog. I used three panels of Blossom paper - the top and bottom panels are actually the same colour in real life, but look a little different on the scan.
I punched holes with a Japanese screw punch and laced chocolate grosgrain through them, finishing off by tying the ribbon in a knot. I then added a die cut daisy with a Card Candy centre and a chocolate scallop circle with an In Circle Message in the middle. Both of these were mounted on foam pads.
