Anyway, enough whittering and onto the card. I wanted a quick card to send to a friends who is having a rough time at the moment. The image is lili of the valley and I had stamped, die cut it and coloured it with copics ready to craft with some time ago. I used a decorative label die to frame the image and the same yellow to build up the layers of the card and die cut the hugs sentiment and layered it up 3 times to make it pop. I used a soft green card for the background to complement the yellow which I chose to highlight the sunflower. The ribbon was left over from the ribbons I bought to make my wedding bouquet with. I put a length of ribbon round the front of the card and stuck it down with some red liner tape inside the card. A simple white paper insert covered this up. The ribbon is wired and so I could pinch it in slightly where I attached the bow (made with a bow maker) with glue gel. I tried to keep the card reasonably flat so it would post easily, I hope it cheered my friend up a little.
