Thank You Card

A quick blog post from me today! I got some fabulous new Craftwork Cards goodies at the Hobbycrafts craft fair at the SECC last Friday and couldn't wait to get stuck into the goodies! I've got lots more to show you including some absolutely gorgeous Gorjuss papers and toppers but that will have to wait till i've got a bit more time on my hands!

So for this quick card today, i've used the new gingham papers from the Floral Fusion papers at Craftwork cards - these were included in the Guys and Dolls Goodie Bag that i picked up on Friday - you can get the papers and other elements over at their website. 

This is a quick easy card, using a 6x6" card blank, some white pearl paper on the background, with the gingham papers matted onto kraft cardstock, a 'Thank you' sentiment matted the same way and some fabulous kraft flowers and of course candi! A length of black twine is wrapped around the blue papers and lots of dimension by using 3D foam and pinflair glue gel to layer the big flower.


Here's a close up of the main flower - i've put some crushed kraft candi in the centre and used Star Dust Stickles in the middle of each. Each petal has been bent out of shape to give extra dimension - i think my next card wil have even more layers!

Well, this card will be winging its way to a special lady who has been very generous with her time and talents and has been a big inspiration to me in recent weeks. Will let you know her verdict!
