Sunkissed Burst!

Good Morning! I hope that your new year is getting off to a good start. Not very much to tell you from this end really other than we are getting tidied up in the house and have taken down the decorations for another year. Oooh, the house does look bare, no more glittering tinsel and twinkling lights, nevermind, we will look forward to this December when they will be pulled out of storage and once again do their magic in our house!

This card (on the left) and its box (on the right) are shown at the top of my website page. This card measures 21cm x 21cm and the box lid is 22.5m x 22.5m, the base would be 22cm x 22cm. I have used card, paper and pearls from my own collection. For the decoration in the centre of the card I have used Marianne’s Petra Ornament die, I have stamped the sentiment onto the smaller die in this set and layered it up on the next die to add dimension. I have then layered this again using Petra’s Heart, which I have cut out twice and stuck it under the blue layer so that it “peeks out” from the side and the top to add more interest to the card. The flowers are Heartfelt Sunkissed Fleur die together with a matching stamp. I have used Memory Box Fresh Foliage die and the leaves are all set around and beneath the flowers. I have then added flatback pearls to the centre of each flower, in varying sizes to fill the centre of the flowers. The box is slightly less decorated than the card and I have used a different sentiment. The sentiments are from my stash.
