I'm here with a card that I made for you today, and I hope you like it as much as I do!
I was looking through my beautiful D-lish Scraps flowers that had just been delivered, and the way they fell onto my work-surface (after I'd excitedly ripped open the box lol), they reminded me of a secret garden. That's my inspiration for today's card.
First I created the cardbase, which was just white cardstock that I ran through my embossing machine, with a Tim Holtz bricks embossing folder. I then added Distress Ink over the top in Rusty Hinge, Fired Brick, Weathered Wood and Spiced Marmalade, with a touch of Walnut stain to really age the bricks.
Next I made the door--for this I diecut a piece of kraft cardstock using Lil Inkers stitched dies, and then I added stamping with Neat and Tangled On the Strip--the woodgrain one. I then added more distress ink and even a little paint, and some green gelato to make the wood look a bit more worn. I then added my beautiful Metal Box Lock from D-lish.
Next I set about arranging my flowers around--note to self, BUY MORE IVY!! It's so delicious, I can't wait to get more!
I tried to ensure I got a variety of colours around the place, without it looking too carefully planned.
That's it! I hope I've inspired you to look at your flowers and think about ways to re-create a scene that you might find them in real life!
Here are the products I used:
Brown Leaf 20mm
Alder Flowers-Periwinkle and Orchid
Metal Box Lock
Rambling Rose Yellow and Light Pink
Have a great day!
