Poinsettias & Floating Windows

Hey, Happy Monday!

It's a lovely Autumn day here in the North East of England :) Today I thought I'd share a couple more cards from the class at The Paperlane on World Card Making Day (Saturday)...




This first is a floating window card, where the aperture window has some acetate sandwiched in between, to give the look that the poinsettia & leaves appear to be floating! I didn't want them to be floating randomly so made the design flow diagonally across the card.




Keeping in with the theme of poinsettias, my next card uses Pure Florals: Poinsettia, well a section of the large poinsettia from the set...




A non traditional colour scheme mixed with the traditional flower seen at Christmas. To make the poinsettias pop, I stamped them in white pigment ink on the red CS and heat embossed them with some True White Cosmic Shimmer EP.




That's all from me today, I've a few more cards from the day which I will be sharing later in the week, but I will be back tomorrow with something freshly stamped to share.

Until then, thank you for stopping by & have a lovely day :)
