It’s time for the first Watercooler Wednesday Challenge for 2019! This week is Dawn’s Feminine “Anything Goes” Challenge!
Today’s card is a very feminine birthday card.
The cross – stitch flowers are Waffle Flowers – The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery layered flowers. I love the way it reminds me of my days of cross stitching!
I must admit, when I saw this set, I fell in love and after watching a couple of videos, I thought it would be easy. However, although I’m really pleased with the result, I must say matching the layers is not that easy. I did find that you could cheat a bit and add a couple of stiches with pen, if it seems to be missing.
The card was folded normally, but then a section was removed from the LHS. The top layer was cut using Spellbinders – Curved Borders Two die and layered over some pale pink card, before being added to the card front. Along the side, I added a strip coloured with the same ink used on the flowers. The sentiment is from the same flower set.
Please head over to our blog and check out the wonderfully inspirational work by the rest of the Design Team! I hope you will find the time to join our challenge this month. Good luck!
