Yet another floral card to share today, made yesterday to cheer me up on a very grey, very wet Wednesday. Bit of a contrast today because we have blue skies and sunshine although still winter temperatures of course. For this one I've pulled out a long-retired stamp set which I've had for many years. These date back to well before stamp sets came with matching dies so anything we wanted cut out had to be fussy cut with scissors which is what I've done here - at least everything except the sentiment oval which was die cut. For the outer blue square I was unable to find a piece of card to tone nicely with the blue I'd used for the stamping so I simply inked around the edges using the same ink - perfect match of course. The white square had the darker blue swirls stamped before being put through an embossing folder for some texture. The blue plaque and flowers were fussy cut and the sentiment was stamped and die cut into an oval.
Embossing Folder - Art Deco style by Creative Expressions I think (no markings on folder)
Flowers, Swirl and Plaque - Everything Eleanor stamp set from Stampin' Up (retired)
Sentiment - free stamp onto stitched oval die cut Stampin' Up Stitched Shapes
