Good Morning to you all and especially to all my friends in the UK who will be celebrating the Queens Jubilee, hope the weather keeps fine for all of those street parties ! It’s a holiday weekend here also in Greece and hope the rain stops so we can get out and about !
Make it Monday will be celebrating their first anniversary next week and to end their month-long theme of florals they have given us this beautiful colour prompt to inspire us. I really enjoyed taking part in their challenge a couple of weeks ago and when I saw this pretty photograph I knew I wanted to take part.
Here is my interpretation
I ‘m not sure quite how to classify this creation its a cross between an invitation/card/envelope. . The lacy envelope thingy was made with the help of my Cameo , easy you make think but its the result of ten attempts !!! It kept sticking to the carrier sheet and as its such delicate paper it kept ripping ! when I finally did get it of in one piece Mr pokey tool and I had a difference of opinion. I wanted to poke out all of the holes and he preferred to leave some in ! So running out of paper and patience on my tenth attempt I finally managed to get a perfect one !! I printed onto velum this gorgeous paper from Designer Digitals and using a Stamp from the SU set Sweetheart I stamped a little sentiment inside. Using a bigz die by Sizzix Flowers and Daisies I cut out several flowers and then coloured them with Pan Pastels in pink. Am loving those Pastels so easy to use I only wish I had bough more of them. Made my own brad with my I-Top tool using some old fabric and placed it in the centre.
Heres a photo of the inside.
The flower has a clip at the back so it can be attached anywhere else on the card once you have opened it. The insert could be glued in place and is perfect for an invitation or can be used as a little note card.
The back could have been left plain but I got a bit carried away and decided to go the whole hog and carry the colour theme all of the way through.
Do pop over to Make it Monday to see the amazing inspirational pieces by the very talented design team who I have to say are one of the nicest bunches of ladies in blog land !
Right enough crawling from me time for work
