It would seem that I am starting the New Year with a yellow and orange theme ... I guess it makes a change from the red of Christmas! I associate these colours with the start of the new day and Spring - at least they make me smile!
Today I've created a card for a special person ... one of my Aunts celebrates her 80th birthday this month ... so a special card was required.
I began by stamping and heat embossing the flowers and then ink blended shades of yellow and orange across the panel. I then die cut the square with stitched square dies, creating a frame for the panel. I also die cut the numbers both from the panel and from some black card. The central panel is mounted onto some fun foam to add dimension and interest. I stacked the numbers before adhering them to the card.
