Thinking of You

Hi Everyone, l hope everyone is doing well, keeping the colds and flus at bay here in Australia.  I have been off colour lately with a chest infection but hopefully I'll soon be on the mend.  It has taken my scrapping mojo away a little but trying to fight through it as I NEED to create. I WANT to create.
Below is a creation that I did for Couture Creations, Ultimate Crafts & Craft Concepts.

Some of you may recall a post I did for August where a work colleague asked me to make a 'card' for her with a quote on it.  Well she loved it.  She also had her surgery and so far, touch wood, all has gone well.  The staff where I work wanted to do something special for her.  Everyone gives flowers but we wanted to give her something personal where she could look at it and remember where she was and where she is now. To go with the gift, as per normal, I made the card, so that is what I am sharing with you today.

For the case base I made it to a finish as 6x8" in size in white cardstock.  I also cut a 4x6" landscape in white also.  I then chose some of the Magnolia Lane patterened papers, Floral Fancy and Elegant Lady and added them to the white cardstock as below. 

I then die cut  one of the Magnolia Doily dies and cut it in half.  I also used the Keepsake Kandy doily die cut in half from the Amaryllis collection from 2015. I then attached each half to opposite sides of the 4x6" matted piece as shown in the picture below. Prior to attaching the doilies to the 4x6" piece I adhered some matching pink venise lace to the two horizontal sides. Next adhere the doilies and then adhere to the card base.

Next I die cut the Thank You die in Snow White Ultimate Crafts cardstock  and backed it in Carnation pink Ultimate Craft cardstock and heat embossed a sentiment for my card. Using 3D foam dots adhere this to the left side of the card.

Using the Rose Cutting die cut 3 lots of leaves in Cyrpess Green Ultimate Crafts cardstock and cut 3 of the Drifting Feathers die.  Ink the edges of the feathers in a matching green ink.
Using one of the Camden Cottage Roses from Couture Creations remove the back two layers of leaves.  Lightly ink the remaining flower with a matching soft pink ink.  I then sprayed it with spray adhesive and scattered glitter over it. Using more flowers from my stash and some pink berries I finished embellishing the card.
