Now the sun is out, the daffodils are here - still mighty cold though!
Here's today's card -
Mustard Seed Distress Ink over some Coconut White Card. I made sure the ink was dry and then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations One World Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the pattern - the join is behind the topper so you don't really notice. I edged with Mustard Seed using Cut n Dry Foam.
For the topper, I used the Delicate Daffodil Single Stamp. I coloured the stamp using Mustard Seed and Peeled Paint Distress Ink. I lightly spritzed with water before stamping. I cut out using Spellbinders 5 x 7 Matting Basics B and inked through the die with Mustard Seed. I cut a mat out of yellow card using the Matting Basics again.
White Crochet Ribbon and added a Large Circle Dazzler.
