Hi all sugar friends, I hope you are all doing well, and that you are enjoying the December days.
Guess what, I`m all done with my Christmas cards. It feels good, but since I really love Christmas I probably will sneak in some Christmas projects anyway.
But the card I will show you today is as far from Christmas and winter as you can get, and I had a great time making this taste of summer. The wonderful image I have used is “To and Fro” from Sugar Nellies collection “Country Cousins”. Isn`t she just beautiful? You can buy her and all her cousins at Funky Kits.
I have colored the image with my Copics, and for the lace frame and edge I have used punches from Martha Stewart. The fence is a die from Magnolia, the leaves from Marianne Design, and the butterflies from Cherry Lynn. I have decorated my card with pearls, glitter, roses and a homemade flower.
The flower I have made by cutting five organza circles and carefully smelted the edges with the flame from a candle. You don`t have to make perfect circles, it really doesn`t matter for the result, but don’t cut them too small, they will shrink a lot when you heat the edges. I think my biggest circle was about 6cm. In the end I fasten the circles together with a big pearl.
