Lexi's Creations.....No Straight Edges

Hi Susan here....

Well here we are again, two weeks have flown past and another great challenge has started at Lexi's Creations. This time the theme is 'NO STRAIGHT EDGES'. So we want to see curves, scallops, circles, ovals etc...but no straight edges.
For full details of this challenge, our sponsor and to get some fabulous inspiration for the challenge from our design team call across to Lexi's Creations Challenge Blog.

Now onto my card.....

I hope you like my take on the 'No Straight Edges' theme for this challenge. I used a die for the main card just slightly lipping it off the edge of my folded card, I have gently inked the edges and added stickles before adding the layers of deckle cut circles for the backing.
As usual the pearls are from my local market.

This is the view of the card stood up. The flowers are a mix from Hobby Crafts and Crafty Emma's. The leaves I made using deckle scissors, inks and a ball tool.

This gorgeous quote is one of John Lennons, I have designed the layout on the computer, I love this quote.
I used a die to cut it out with scallops, then embossed it using the same die, then I inked the edges.

This beautiful digital image fairy has been designed by Lexi Lee and is called 'Elaina', available from Fairy Dust Crafts. I have used chalks and stickles to colour the image.

Thank you for taking the time to look and for all the wonderful comments.
Love and hugs

  11. Susan, this is gorgeous. How on earth did you get that die to cut through two bits of card though! I did mine slightly differently by making a back which I glued on and used as stand.

    Your floral arrangement is so pretty too.
