A Posy for You


My entry this week for the Friday Sketchers Challenge, follows a lovely sketch from Beatrix, and I have called it 'A Posy for You'. It certainly was out of my 'comfort zone' not to make a square card, but in the end quite liked the 7 x 5 inch format I chose to use. Please click on the photos if you would like to see more detail, they will all open up in a large format.


The papers are all digital and the image is a really cute h'Anglar little girl holding a posy. The image is coloured with Copic pens and I have also added a little Magnolia butterfly to the front of the card. The ribbon is one from a previous collection from Raspberry Ribbons. Inside the card I have followed the design through and using Nestabilities circle and scalloped circle created a frame for a smaller version of the image.


As usual I have created a boxed envelope, this time for a 7 x 5 inch card. To make this I used the Enveloper Pro, and used D1 and C. To create the box effect, after I have scored the lines as per the recommendations for the card size, I carefully moved the card just under half an inch to the right of the first score line, and then carefully score a second line parallel - I do this to all sides, and this is how the box frame is made.



Thanks for taking the time to stop by, I would love it if you could leave your comments, I really do appreciate them. Thank you xx
