Firstly - I apologise for the colour of this card - it looks nothing like as yellow IRL, and the colours do all match really!
You would not believe how long it took me to make this card! First of all I made a large flower out of the gorgeous deep purple tissue paper, but thought it did not look right for a special acceptance card - look out for the flower on another card soon though. So then I could not decide what to do. I wanted to use a C6 landscape card and emboss the base card, but of course the Cuttlebug embossing folder I wanted to use is not the right way round to emboss the bottom half of a card, so I had to look for a separate sheet of paper to use. I've seen other people separate their folders, but I was not brave enough to do that - I really have an aversion to 'breaking' things LOL! Then, the folder is not wide enough for this size card. So I had to move the paper across and emboss more than once for the full width - which left a mark where the join was - unfortunately, you can still see the line a bit.
Then, after lots of fiddling, I made the paper flowers out of tissue paper using a daisy punch - each flower has about six layers of tissue paper. I love them - definitely gonna do that again! Didn't have a stamp with Acceptance on it, so had to use peel offs.
I was really pleased with the finished card, but my photo really does not do it justice.
I'm going to enter it in the following challenges:
Freshly Brewed Challenge which is Anything Goes
Allsorts Challenge which is Embossing
Well, that's it from me for now - better wash up before going to bed!
Love, Andrea xx
