Daffodil for You

Good morning!   My card today is one of those that can be used for lots of occasions.   I used it for a sympathy card but it could just as easily be a birthday, thinking of you, just because and more.

I started with a card base of the new Hera cardstock.  Even though it doesn't show well in the photo, this is a wonderful beige that works with so many colors and cards!

Gold Leaf Curious Metallic was used for the mat.  The gold is a rich, muted color.  I embossed it with the Heather Border for a very delicate and elegant border.  I rounded the corners of the mat for a little added interest.

I chose a daffodil outline sticker for the focal point.  I love to use the stickers!  They are quick, easy and give an embossed look with no mess.  I placed the daffodil on heavyweight vellum and framed it with a frame from the Oval Frames sticker sheet. The heavyweight vellum did not curl when I colored it and has quickly become a favorite!

I cut around the frame and then colored the daffodil with a variety of markers - 3D Souffle, Metallic and Copics.  It was easy to put a touch of adhesive behind the daffodil and adhere it to the center of the gold mat.

I hope you enjoyed my card today!   Be sure to check out this week's specials and new products here!
