Welcome to another fun week at Casing the Catty. I hope you are managing with all the things going on. I’m working from home and I am getting used to having a sleep in each morning. I’m going to struggle getting up to drive an hour to work especially if it’s in the middle of winter!!
We are back for week 2 of casing the flowers of the Ornate Garden Suite. Now you don’t need to have the suite (although feel welcome to buy it from my store here!!)
I was inspired by a couple of the Ornate Garden images. For my background, I was inspired by the embossed background on the card on the bottom left. I cut out the large flowers from the Flourish dies and glued them to a base piece of So Saffron cardstock. As I got glue on the background, I sponged the whole background. I then embossed it with my favourite subtles embossing folder.
I’m really trying not to use Happy Birthday sentiments as I have so many birthday cards already. So I used the Flourishing Phrases stamp set and once again, my favourite Stitched So Sweetly dies.
I wanted to add some of the star (?) shapes from the dies but it was an outline die, so I glued it to Old Olive cardstock and cut it out by hand. I added a couple of the Gilded Gems for a touch of bling.
I’m quite happy with how this card turned out! I hope you like it too.
Next up is the lovely Peta.
We would love to see how you have been inspired by the flowers of the Ornate Garden Suite over on at our Facebook group.
