Special Friend

Hello everyone I hope that you are all well today

I thought that I would share with you a card that I made for a very good friend of mine 

The size of this card is 8" x 8" 
I started out by stamping my Stamping Bella image onto card and then colouring in with Copic alcohol markers, then I trimmed the image to the desired size and rounded of the corners with a corner punch.  Next I matted some pretty floral paper onto craft card and then stuck this to my card base.  I then took a different floral paper and cut it to about 12cm x 12cm and matted this onto craft card too.  I then used the Granada Die from the Sue Wilson Spanish Collection to cut out a mat for my focal image to sit on, the paper I used was a wallpaper sample but fit my colour scheme perfectly, I mounted this onto foam pads and placed it centrally on the smaller floral square.  I then matted my main focal image onto craft card and stuck this to the frame using foam pads

To finish off the card I used the Sue Wilson Finishing Touches complete petals and open petals to cut out my flowers and a few nice leafy flourishes.  some sentiments and wooden heart buttons finish off the card completely, and I am happy to say that my friend loved it

I hope you like it too and thank you for taking the time to read my blog 

Best wishes
