Just Because

Hello friends

I think I've almost caught up with everything and even got my project for Thursday club sorted phew!
I spent a lovely afternoon with my friend Pat on Monday and we chatted, drank coffee and ate some of my homemade buns and of course did some card making...

Having seen These lovely cards on Danielle Flanders blog I was inspired to try out this technique and here's what I came up with


The flower stamp I used is an old one by American Crafts - and I used the umbrella die from Impression Obsessions


I'm loving the Label Maker Sentiments from MFT ... There are so many combinations you can come up with


You can just see that I put some black CS behind the front of the card and slightly offset the umbrellas just to give a little more definition and shadow

I hope your having a good day ... We had wonderful weather and it's set to last for a few more days yet

Thanks so much for stopping by

Till soon

Great technique, so very effective. Liking the idea of the black CS behind and slightly offsetting the umbrella, works brilliantly. Loving those sentiments too x

It seems that "Just because" is about the best reason to make and send a card... lovely!

Charlene said...

Love Ros! The flowers are beautifully stamped and the umbrella's are wonderful popped up!

Stella said...

I love your take on this technique. Great idea to use this umbrella die. And we ar elucky we don't need an umbrella for the upcoming days; the weather here is great too.
Hope to chat soon:)

Ros I LOVE this card!! So bright and fun! The bit of off set of the umbrellas adds a great bit of dimension to them, they really seem as if they are floating!!

Beautiful card, Ros. Thanks for stopping by my mainly writing blog. I hope to see you there again soon, but I'd love it if you'd stop by my other site too, if it's not too much to ask?
Hugs,
