Today I thought that I would show you the two cards that I made for my friend, for Mother. For both of these cards I used Tattered Lace designs and Charisma dies. The first uses the free die off of the front of the Tattered Lace magazine from last month (Issue 48). This card follows one of the tutorials to a certain extent too. I started with a 8x8 card base and used green card stock for the matting, and printed off one of the pretty papers for the backing paper. I then printed the beautiful Fuchsia several times and cut them all out with the die. I cut a hexagon from green card and then cut in halve and done the same but smaller in white and layered these to make a basket. I drew some lines from my basket to the top of the backing paper to make it look like the basket was hanging. The sentiment that you can see was printed straight onto the backing paper and I added a bow to the top of the card too. Then it was just a case of layering up the fuchsias as though they were hanging from the basket.
The next card uses flowers and backing papers from the Magical Midnight Watercolours from Tattered Lace and My Craft Studio along with the Lotti Dotti Square from Tattered Lace. Again I printed the sentiment onto the backing card before cutting out with the die. Although you can't tell from the photo the flowers has 4-5 layers.
Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
