forever friends...

forever friends
Hey!

Woo hoo! Happy Thursday! Happy 5th-of-the-month! Happy Clearly Besotted release day! :D

Yup, those sweet products we've been teasing you with over the past few days are revealed in full on Stephanie's blog and they're available to purchase from 10pm tonight (UK time)!

Today's card in the final sneaky peeks uses the set, Friends Forever. Clearly Besotted flower sets are always popular so I'm pretty sure that this set is going to be a favourite. Not only does it contain two beautiful floral images but the co-ordinating sentiments are designed using that gorgeous, script-style font juxtaposed against the bold typewriter font. Love. It.

I know the picture of my card is a little different to what you normally see here. All I can say is that I ran out of daylight and I'm incredibly fortunate to work with a photographer who has a studio in our offices to photograph cards...*wink* (Thanks, Tym!)

tips and tricks
  • Although the sentiment is 'friends forever',  for design purposes I switched the words around. This still works (I think!) and the sentiment fits nicely around the flower. 
  • I originally planed to just mount this rectangular stamped panel onto my card front, but felt that was kinda boring. It also meant I'd have more white space to think about! So I opted to curve the top by drawing around a circle die. Easy. 
Well? Have you got your shopping list sorted for tonight? If you need more enabling, then be sure to take a peek at Stephanie's for the full reveal and more links to the Design Team sharing inspirational projects! :)

Thanks so much for visiting today and over the past few days. It's so good to be back blogging and creating - I promise I won't leave it it a couple of months before my next post!

Lovely card, the rounded edge is unusual and add a "je ne sais quoi" to the design.
