Art Nouveau Layered Front Shaped Card - 7

A Little Play Time And A Fancy Shaped Card

Ooo, I do like a bit of fancy every now and then. Don’t you?

Anyway, I’ve been designing things for weeks and haven’t even given me the time to make something with it – how crazy is that?!

I even started thinking that I might have forgotten how to make a card! lol (never).

So I decided to ‘award’ myself some play time today and have a go at making something with one of the designs that I have been creating for my shop.

I have to say that I am pretty proud of what I came up with!

The card started with the Art Nouveau Fancy Flourish Layered Card set

I cut all of the bits and bobs out and assembled them together.

Here’s a closer look at the layers.

I then stamped out an ‘I Love You’ sentiment onto milk card stock using mini alphabet stamps and Memento ink.

The bountiful bouquet was created by forming a range of quilled flowers and leaves from coordinating card stock and paper.

It was all glued into place using Pinflair glue gel to ensure that it stayed lush and bushy.

… bish, bash, bosh – job done!

What do you think – pretty isn’t it?

Anyway – I’ve got some line art to crack on with – hope you liked this little creation and I’ll see you again soon…
