I have been home for a week now and have caught up with all the washing and housework and actually got around to spending some time crafting, more or less the first this year.
Here is one of the cards I have made. I used a set of Memory Box dies which includes a die to cut the blank background panel as well as the floral frame die. I used snippets of white, green and pink card for this.The sentiment was stamped onto the white backing with memento Rhubarb Stalk ink and an Indigo Blu stamp which came free with a magazine some time ago. I cut the frame once with green card and then again with pink and snipped the flowers away and shaped them slightly with a ball tool and fixed them over the green ones with glue dots. For the tiny bright flowers I used a tiny snippet and cut it into bits and just placed onto the appropriate places and ran it through the cutter again. The base card is a 15cm square, with the front covered with some plain beige backing paper from a magazine cut around the edge with a scalloped blade in the cutter. I used a Crafty Individuals background stamp and Memento Rhubarb Stalk ink, lightly stamping off some of the ink onto spare paper before stamping onto the card. I then stuck the floral frame in place and finished the flowers with tiny pearls in the centers.
