Missing You Aperture Card


Hello again,
I'm entering into a new competition this week over at the CASE Study Challenge Blog! The basic premise is to be inspired by the featured card which this week is this one from September muse, Torico...

Such a fun design and heres my interpretation.

Incorporating papers from the My Minds Eye Indie Chic "Citron" pad, I used the aperture idea layered over patterned paper using a circle die on a 5x5 card. I then fussy cut a floral arrangement from a different paper and aligned it to the bottom corner, using foam pads to add dimension.
I then stamped a sentiment from Stampendous first in Chateau Gray from Versa and then overlayed with black StazOn to create a shadow look which I think looks really effective.

I then added one of the cut flowers to the opposite corner, again using foam pads, and decorated either side with gems using Pinflair.

I hope you like it!

    You're a new card maker! Yay! It's not easy to find a style let me tell you. I've been jumping from one into another ever since I started. lol! In the end, it seems to be a combination of several styles. ;)
