Hello, Crafters.

Barring any hiccups, over the weekend I shall be launching my
 first ever online BOGOF (buy one, get one free) Sale, and it will 
run until the end of August. More details will follow very soon! 
Such exciting times!
Today's card is another example of how to use the large flower
 image from the Blended Seasons Stamp Set without having to 
colour the image. I stamped the image in Versamark on Crumb Cake
 Cardstock (CS) and heat embossed it using White Embossing Powder. 
Next I fussy cut the image around the white embossed outline
i.e. without leaving any edging. I took a piece of the Crumb 
Cake and white stripe design from the Neutrals 6" x 6" Designer 
Series Paper (DSP), and layered it onto a piece of Crumb Cake CS. 
I wrapped a piece of Burlap around the centre and adhered at the
 back using Tear and Tape. Using Dimensionals I attached the flower
 image over the Burlap, and then using more Dimensionals I
 attached the layer to the card front ........upside down!!!  GRRR!! 
I cut the card base in half and made a larger card base than normal
 in Crumb Cake CS, and adhered the image layer the correct way 
round! I used the HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU sentiment from the
 Best Bunny Stamp Set, and heat embossed it in white on Crumb Cake CS.

 Using  the small oval die from the New Night Owl Dies, I die
 cut the sentiment and adhered it in the top right-hand corner. I 
added a large Basic Pearl in the centre of each flower, and also a 
row of three smaller Basic Pearls in a vertical line in the bottom 
right-hand corner of the card. 

Later today, I'm hoping to pop back to give you the details of how 
my BOGOF is going work, and if all goes well, I'll launch it on Saturday! ☺

 In the meantime, happy crafting.
