a tiny touch of gingham


   A little goes a long way.That goes for the stripe of gingham on this get well card. I stamped the flower and colored it with Copic and die cut it with a spellbinders die and I then hand cut a tiny green mat.The front of a card I did a bit of dry embossing. I did a polka dot border on the side and the Hexagon a size larger then the matted flower on the front. I added the skinny stripe of gingham along the edge of the embossed polka dot.To finish it off I stamped the saying on the bottom
  I love the texture on this card it really adds some interest to the focal point of this card with out distracting from it.
    I will be posting this on the Mod Squad Challenge Blog's gingham challenge. Stop on by and see all of the other fun cards that people have made.
  Thanks for stopping.

A simple elegant frame with a poppie


   Simple but striking too. I love how this card turned out. ( I say that a lot don't I?)
As I had said in previous posts I color and then cut out my stamped images and wait for time to create a card with them. This one I wanted to pop the color of the poppies and I found a lovely raspberry scarp of card stock that was a perfect accent with the poppies.I cut a strip of green gingham and then scored the card top and bottom of where I was going to place the gingham. It kind of framed it. I then attached the oval matted flowers.( oh I added the simple small sentiment " so sorry") I used a sympathy saying inside the card.

Pretty pink poppie

 
  I had stamped a page full of poppies at a stamping weekend months ago and colored them while watching T.V. awhile ago.I cut some round some oval ,etc. I then played with mats and colors and this one need a pop of color and the gingham was just the ticket for this card. It brought out the green in the stem.
     I stamped the flower and colored it with Copic markers and then die cut it and the mats with Spellbinder die's. I cut a piece of gingham as well as the black mat and then used a corner rounder to each of the corners. I think this helped the design flow better. I attached the layers to the card and then added a fun thinking of you saying at a slight angle on the bottom right hand corner.
    This card will be entered over at Mod Squad Challenge Blog for it's gingham challenge.
