Next I die cut the candle from Silver Metallic Paper, Blue Glitter Cardstock, and Ivory Shimmer Paper and inlaid it into my washi tape cardstock. I die cut three snowflakes from silver glitter paper and inlaid those as well.
The lace eyelets took a bit of time to assemble (I used a glue stick & piercing tool), but otherwise it came together easily ... and looks so cool. I also added the coordinating Be Original Stamps to my stash ... love this combination.
It was also a perfect opportunity to join in the fun at the MFT Sketch Challenge. My finished card is 5 1/2" x 6".
For some reason, this one was more challenging to me than usual. I purged a lot of my flower collection when we moved, so was struggling to figure out a floral design. As I was rummaging through my supplies, I realized my Martha Stewart Layering Daisy Punch would create the perfect bloom, so that was my starting point.
I tried several colors for the circle background and settled on green to bring in the contrast of the leaves. I searched for a wood grain paper that would work, but none had the grayish tone I was goin for, so I ended-up using a gridded designer paper instead.
I pulled in the purple and grey from the inspiration photo, and finished with a MFT Get Well Wishes Sentiment ... hoping this daisy bouquet would cheer someone's spirit.
