Fresh Cut Thank You

I just love Sundays when there is a Grand Prix on the TV, as my family know that I love them so much they always try to leave me alone, so it means that I can craft while sat on the sofa!!

Yesterday I went with my family to see the 3D film "Arthur Christmas" at the cinema, and as my sister paid for me, I've made her a Thank You card.

I will also be entering it into 2 challenges;

The sketch is from the Clean and Simple Challenge ,

and the colour palette is from the Color Throwdown Challenge

This is my card

I stamped the flower and text stamp on white card in brown ink, cut it into a circle and sponged the edges.The flowers were then coloured with SU Write markers and placed on a brown scallop circle made with the BS. I then drew around a plate for the dome shape on some blue card and randomly stamped the flower in red and blue on it, and the leaf sprig in brown. I stamped the sentiment frame and text in brown on white card before matting it onto brown card. This frame and the floral disc were placed on 3D pads on a square white card that had had the blue card stuck at the bottom. The finishing touch was the red ribbon.

Card = Bashful Blue, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, and white card from my stash
Stamps = Fresh Cuts and Just Believe
Inks = Island Indigo, Real Red, and Chocolate Chip
Tools = Big Shot and Nestabilities
Extras = Ribbon and 3D pads

At the cinema we had to wear the sexy specs that make 3D what it is, absolutely brilliant! , but I dont think they'll make it onto the catwalks of London or Milan anytime soon!!.We were all amazed that Nathan and Sophie sat through the whole film without a peep, in fact Sophie went to sleep!!, but if you have kids I can highly recommend this film, there are even the odd one liners for the adults!

Anyway, thanks for dropping by and I hope to be back soon.
