You Make Me Smile!

Howdy peepsicles!

This is my 100th post!!! Whoopee! OK, that's the excitement over for today.

I would like to show you a card that I did last night. No occasion. The layout, colours and so on, just popped into my head. So I made it :) Here it is...

What you need...

Stamps: Labels, Fancy #2 Framelits Die & Stamp Set (657582) - Sizzix/Hero Arts
Dies: Labels, Fancy #4 Framelits (657913) - Sizzix; Chinese Rose - Marianne Design Creatables
Paper: Blissful 6 x 6 Bundle - Authentique
Card stock: white, pale yellow
Ink: Onyx Black - Versafine
Seam binding: Walnut
Decorative stick pin

What you do...

Wrap a double length of seam binding around a top fold 12cm square blank and tie in a bow on the left edge. Die cut a label in pale yellow card, and a smaller one in patterned paper. Mount onto the card, over the binding.

Stamp the sentiment onto white card. Cut out with a label die, mount centrally onto the other labels. Die cut two large roses and a small one in co-ordinating patterned paper. Make up and glue to the left of the label, under the bow. Die cut two leaves in pale yellow card and also attach these to the card. Finish with a decorative pin and a few pearls.

I'm really pleased with this card. It turned out just as I imagined and I didn't have to fiddle around for ages getting it just right. Sometimes you have an idea in your head and it just won't work out on the card. So frustrating, especially if you've spent hours choosing colours and arranging stuff only to abandon it. Grrr!

Hope you like. Thanks for looking. xxx
