Lemon and Lace

 Lemon and Lace

This is an unusual colour scheme for me but a  happy one. Because the flower is made of lace I think it works well in white. I began the design on a rectangular piece of Penny Black Mix & Match Summer Sun cardstock by stamping the diamond design background stamp around the edge of the panel and the letter background in the middle. I then stamped the lace flower several times on in versamark ink and embossed in white embossing powder. To highlight the edges and the flowers I sponged some memento dandelion ink around the edges of the panel then sliced it into four pieces. I had a scrap left over so I punched a tag out and tied it on with embroidery floss. The four panels are popped up for a little added dimension.

I hope your day is happy and  sunny.

    This one is very cheery….would brighten a gloomy winter day. You come up with the most unusual combinations of stamps to make a work of art. This is beautiful…as always! LOL. Like the idea of slicing into 4 panels & popping them up. TFS

    I don’t use yellow a lot either but it is such a bright and happy color…..especially during these winter months. Very pretty the way you stamped the layers and then cut the image into panels. Great dimension by popping the panels.

    Heather, this card is stunning. It is so bright and cheerful. I need to make a get well card and I think I will see what I can come up with using yellow.

    That is so gorgeous, and definitely a surprise from what I am used to seeing from you. Nevertheless, a work of art.

    How fun to have a bright yellow card come our way in the middle of the winter. I am going to assume that the recipient of the yellow card I make today will feel just as joyous as I did looking at this for the first time. Beautiful card!

    I’ve seen lots of yellow cards this January Heather and I think we’re all yearning for sunshine! Your white lacy embossing looks wonderful and I like the panelled layout too. Vicky x
