I really like how this card turned out!  Just a bit different and I hope the person I have in mind will enjoy it!

To begin, I cut the notice board from Hero Arts – My Monthly Kit – January 2019 –  1 with the fold and once with the fancy top.

Around the fancy front, I added 2 layers of Wink of Stella to give shine and interest, before  attaching it to the front panel.

I cut the centre board panel from black card and trimmed the bottom edge with my Friskers edge punch. The sentiment from  Hero Arts Florals Nasturtium Set was white heat embossed before the panel was glued to the front.

A circle of gold glitter card was then added on top.

To finish, I stamped and gold heat embossed Hero Arts – Floral Rose Stem, watercoloured with Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolours and fussy cut.

Although it had many layers, it cam together rather quickly. It’s a shame the shine isn’t as clear in photos as IRL!

Don’t forget to head over to our blog to check out the wonderful inspiration from the rest of our Design Team.

I look forward to seeing what you create this week!

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit.  I love to read your comments.

Have a great day

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.
