Sandy Hulsart - You are here!

For my card today, I began with a 5 x 7 white card stock base.  I chose 3 patterned papers from the Winter's Eve Collection and die cut them using the gorgeous Intricate Swirl Frames die set.  The Thank You is from the Butterfly Kisses Decorative Die set, I used white card stock for that.  I stamped Blossoming Coneflowers onto white card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and die cut with the coordinating Blossoming Coneflower dies.   I colored them with Copic markers and then arranged them on the layered frames.  I used spray adhesive on this card which is perfect for the intricate dies.  Another beautiful flat card!

Thank you for visiting and good luck with the blog hop

I really like the coneflower set despite not actually using mine yet. It works well with those frames. Perhaps now that Christmas crafting is over I'll play with the set this weekend.

Very pretty. Sometimes you just need a flat card, and these flowers fit the bill. I haven't tried coloring many flowers myself, even though I bought alcohol markers to do so :)
