The countdown has begun for term to start and for me to be back at work ... I popped in for a few hours today but start in earnest on Thursday! I do enjoy being on holiday and only wish I could afford to retire or that I could earn money crafting but unless I win the lottery I will still be going out to work for a few more years.
I have squeezed in some craft this afternoon and this is the end result:
Not a flower in sight!! I cut up some card into strips for the white on white background - I've seen a background die that creates this effect but felt sure I could recreate it with my guillotine! The strips are adhered flat to the card base. I stamped the main sentiment with versamark on a scrap of card coloured with acrylic ultramarine paint before adding embossing powder and heat embossing it. I coloured some card with festive berries distress ink and then die cut 'Be' and 'happy' - once in the red card and then twice in white card, stacked the die cuts and added them to the card.
