It's time for #docraftsmonday once again! My lovely Grandma is an amazing 94 this coming Thursday and over the weekend, we held a kind a crazy Easter/Birthday family party to celebrate. I have been so manic recently, I haven't had time to craft but this occasion definitely needed a handmade offering...
I wasn't too sure where I wanted to go with the layout for this card, so I got all the elements
out I wanted to use and went from there.
This week's docrafts Creativity Club printables is a fab collection of brick and decking textures (photographed by Carly Barrett) in a monochrome colourway, so I started with that. The theory is a garden wall which has rambling flowers and butterflies climbing up it!
As usual, I went slightly mad on the dimensional side of things - my cards are not suitable for
posting unless you want to box them up! I used a mix of Xcut dies and punches as follows;
Xcut Butterflies A5 Die Set - XCU 503196
Xcut Large Dies Leafy Flourishes - XCU 503189
Xcut Dimension Butterfly Punch Stamp - XCU 2701000
Xcut Daisy Palm Punch
Xcut Tags and Bookplate Dies - XCU 503066
Xcut Petal Posy Dies - XCU 503065
I have to say, the Leafy Flourishes look so much nicer once they have been die-cut. This is the first time I have used them and will definitely do so again!
Add in a touch of antiquing with dye ink and a few Papermania adhesive gems and there you have it!
