Special Day

Hello everyone, today for my DT card at Cheery Lynn Designs I have been having fun layering their Stacker Dies to make a frame, adding finishing touches with the gorgeous Daisy Chain Die.

I started by cutting out my large square die along with a smaller square to form my aperture frame. Next I cut out another square frame in yellow cardstock and cut along the pierced edge with my gullotine and inserted behind my frame along with my lace edge that had a little Distress Ink added at the edges. I added foam strips to my frame and placed on my card.

My Blue Tit bird was coloured in with Distress Inks and a Black Fine Liner Pen. For my Daisy Chain I positioned 4 strips around my card and layered my flowers twice, shaping them on my Embossing mat adding pearls to the centres and hiding the joins with a Daisy.

My sentiment and frame were layered up with foam strips and a little cheesecloth and pearls for extra detail.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and for all the continued comments left, I love reading them.
