Good morning everybody. Hope all is good with you. Not sure why I'm scheduling this as I will be up now as I, in a fit of madness, agreed to go into work for 7.30am. Not only that, I agreed to stay until 16.30!!! Note to self, engage brain before mouth in future.
Thank you for the comments on Mr D's card. I'm sure he'd try and eat it if he could.
Ita, lovely to know you're still paddling. Gosh, you have been through the ringer chuck but I look forward to the book lol! Great you still have your sense of humour and I'm sure everyone, along with me, wishes you well.
Sorry that the Easter theme is ongoing but I wanted to show the card I made for Nesta. She was thrilled, bless her and I have to admit, I was pleased with the way it turned out.
Now, I started with an A5 cream card base. I then cut another piece of cream card, slightly smaller and cut an aperture using one of the SB Scalloped Ovals, large enough to fit my daffs.
On this top layer, I stamped my Card-io Daffs stamps with various Distress Inks, added the "Easter" cut from an X-Cut Alphabet die and stamped and heat embossed the "Happy" above it. I inked the edges with Mustard Seed DI.
I lightly marked the base card, in pencil, through the aperture so I knew where to assemble my daff display. The daffs are actually flowers cut from the HC Sunkissed Fleur die, larger ones in yellow card, small ones from orange card. I shaped the orange ones to form the centres so they looked like the"trumpets" on daffodils.
The leaves are actually from the SB Carnation Creations set so no actual daffodils involved but I do think they look daffodilesque.
I then foam padded the top layer onto this and that was that.
I hope you indulge my artistic licence with the daffs.
I only have one more Easter card to share, just to warn you.
Hopefully, I will be back soon if today's 9 hour shift doesn't polish me off!!!
