More Top Note!

I just love this top note die, here I've cut it out three times then cut each one into varying strips which are then layered on another top note, quite effective I think.  I stamped the leaves flourish from Vintage Vogue by stamping it off first to get a softer image.  The sentiment is from A Beautiful Thing set.

The flower is made using the Scallop Circle punch and scoring each of the scallops across the whole circle, then cut one scallop down to the centre of the circle and accordian fold the scores, three of these glued together then a brad in the centre and you're done!

Birthday wishes for a dear friend

rThis is a card I made recently for a dear friend who is in Canberra, yes it is prety much a copy of ones I've made previously using the rubbing alcohol technique but the finished look of this card is just sensational.  This will not see purple anywhere near the card!  I've used reds and yellows which are more her colours.

Hope it inspires you to create.
