Mainly Diecutting

This is another card which I made quite a while ago but haven't shared. As a couple of the more recent makes are being kept for challenges here it is - hopefully I can remember what I used here.  I started with a piece of black card, die cutting corners at the top and a fancy border at the bottom, rubbing the lacy areas with copper gilding wax.  This was layered onto a piece of text backing paper and onto a card blank.  The words were die cut from scraps of black and popped onto a plaque made using some of the text paper and the frame cut from copper pearl card.  A matching flower  was die cut and a swirl which was just lying around on my desk were added. 

Thankfully we are back to more nice sunny weather after a fierce thunder storm with torrential rain on Monday evening - a bit of rain and the grass grows like mad though!!

Corners and Border - Crafter's Companion dies
Words - Crafter's Companion dies
Plaque - Sue Wilson dies
Flower - also a Sue Wilson die
Swirl - Marianne die (I think)

Today's Card

A quick visit to the blog this morning to share another of my cards which was actually made a little while ago but not shown.  The image was coloured to tie in with the colours of the floral background and I used up odd bits and pieces of card for the oval, border strip and the daisies.  We are still enjoying some wonderful sunshine and I hope most of you are having the same lovely weather where you are.
