Today is ANZAC (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) Day, one of the most important occasions here in Australia. This day marks the anniversary of the first campaign fought by soldiers from Australia and New Zealand landing on the Gallipoli Peninsular in 1915. At this time we remember all those who have sacrificed so much, to allow us to live in such a wonderful country and the special bonds of friendship that have developed.
Tonight I’m sharing a shaped card, featuring Altnew’s ‘Just Because’ Stamp Set. I love this floral bouquet, which I watercoloured using Distress Inks. I have to admit that I love watercolouring. (You could probably tell when you look at my posts! LOL!) The effects are always special and a just a little softer and less formal.
I used Lifestyle Craft cutting dies to cut the front of the card, carefully hand cutting the overlapping sections of the image. This set is great, as it has so many sizes, and allowed me to cut another slightly larger, as a frame, before attaching it to the folded card. This base card was cut using the same die as the main image, but the die was placed slightly over the fold to form a hinged card base.
To finish, I added a sentiment made from Altnew’s ‘Wishing You’ and ‘Floral Frame’ stamp sets, and some pearls.
