Thanks for popping in! Hotter than yesterday here in the Southeast. To hot to move around much, except for a long walk, cool under the canopy of the greenwood trees. That was wonderful.
It’s been what one could call a mini holiday actually. A combination of extreme heat and our friend Jilly’s company stopped me hopping about, working, cleaning, planning, doing bla bla bla. In fact, Wurka and Hollick didn’t get a look in today. I even had an afternoon nap! Feel better for it too.
Here’s a simple step by step using a set of my favourite Clarity fresh Cut Dies. I LOVE these floral rounds!
BIG SAVINGS ON BOTH BUNDLES> Check it out…
Ironically, we named these dies Floral friends. And from where I’m sitting up here in the SHAC Shack, looking through the door, I can see two of my best friends, Dave and Jilly, chatting away. They get on well too.
Right. Simple step by step…
Pick one of the dies and cut it out of a black 6×6 cardblank. Pick a Designer Card Topper and decided which one you want to use. They all look lovely. Would make a fab set of notelets as a gift, too. If you’re looking at Christmas presents, this is perfect. I would be so chuffed to receive a box of these, to use all year round.
Let’s move on with one…
Using the nested circles dies, let’s add a flash of colour to the front too. We can use the same piece of card for the front AND the inside.
Pergaglue is great fot attaching. Got a good nozzle, and allows for a little wiggle room before it dries. Dot it around the image on the INSIDE of the black card,
Place the coloured disc onto the aperture on the inside and press down. Flip over to reveal the lovely floral aperture complete with beautiful background.
Next stop front ring. Dot the Perga Glue around the ring on the white back and simply position around the aperture on the front. This will lift the colour beautifully. Less blackness.
Use the scrap left to back a sentiment from our sticker book and attach where you think it looks good. Perga Glue, glue runner – you pick. Trim the black square back, or leave as is.
The Circle of Life. Yep. It goes round and round. That’s quite a comforting thought.
Lovely general card. Quick easy and very lovely too.
Can you see Jilly and Dave in the background?
No? Let me adjust the focus…
And now that I have adjusted my focus, I think I shall go join them, and make the most our our little mini break here in the garden. Good people here! I want to focus on them…the GOOD people.
Mmm. I can smell sausages on the Bar-B !!!
Love and Hugs.
