Leo has chosen a lovely photo which is light and airy but with the romantic feel you'd probably expect with Valentines day just around the corner!
We've also got a new Guest Designer working with us this month so I hope you'll head over and pay the blog a visit.
I'd just taken delivery of a parcel of goodies from The Craftz Boutique (soooooo sad they are closing :() - they always wrap up your goodies in pretty tissue paper, and on this occasion it was a zebra print, wasn't it? So one element just chose itself!
Apart from the zebra print pattern, I also chose to incorporate the heart in a square picture frame, some text and the Orchid, with that fabulous shot of bright pink.
Here's my card:
I cut a square frame using a nested die set (Tonic) covered it with some of the zebra print tissue paper, and left it to dry
I couldn't find "the right" (you know how it is) sort of text print paper, so I decided to have a go at making my own, and came up with this, which I printed out onto Bazzill Diamond White card
Next I made the inner, silver frame using a die from the Heart nested set by Die'Namics and some dull silver card
Adding some scraps of chipboard for dimension I adhered the frame over the text and then fixed the zebra frame over the whole thing
The card blank is a 15cm square with a square of Bazzill Bling Black card for the mat for the frame section
As I couldn't find a suitable die or punch, I hand cut the pieces for the orchids (which is why they aren't particularly good) from scraps of card and glued in place to finish
That's all for this time, I hope you like it.
