…the larger kind we feel for what we give

Sharing a card I made for a colleague featuring a lovely flower die from Penny Black called Glamorous as the focal point instead of my usual stamped image.

I started my card with the sketch over at Sketch Saturday and decided to use another die to cut the circle element and frame my flower.  For the banner element I cut bits off a couple of Make it Crafty chipboards and simply brushed them with some Nuvo shimmer ink.  My flower is cut from watercolour paper and then distress inked so I could play along at the Alphabet Challenge.

I did my sentiment in two shades of purple ink, topping each with some clear embossing powder for a lovely bit of shine and texture.

I kept the background neutral and cut the circle frame out of my white cardstock, popping it up on some foam dots for a bit of added interest.  My embellies are also very minimal to keep the whole design quite CAS.  As that’s the current theme at My Time To Craft, I’m also linking my card up there.
