One Day Special Shows Continue today

Hi Bloggers.

One Day Special shows continue today at 9am, 1pm and 5pm. Hope you can join me.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I've used the CE Bark Embossing Folder (the one you get in the One Day Special Bundle) and embossed a piece of Coconut White Card. It's easy to extend the design on this folder as it's quite a random design.

I cut the frame from the Celebrations Shadow Box Die Set out of Coconut White Card and glued it on top of my embossed background.

I made a frame out of Coconut White Card using dies #3 and #5 from the Stitched Square Peg Board Die Set. I added it to my background using Woodware Foam Tape and then matted onto a couple of pieces of Coconut White Card.

I cut the top section from the Majestic Tree Die Set out of Forest Card twice, inking though the die with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide. I cut the trunk section out of Cinnamon Card and again inked through the die with Vintage Photo Oxide.

I cut the sentiment from the Life is a Garden Die Set out of Cinnamon Card. I added some hearts from the Bushel Basket Die Set cut from Rich Red Card.

I cut 3 sizes of flower from the Sunflower Bouquet Die Set out of Coconut White Card. I painted them using Straw Yellow Pixie Powder. Once dry, I shaped them using a Woodware Shaping Tool and a Moulding Mat. I cut some leaves out of Coconut White Card using the same die set and painted them with Pale Olive Pixie Powder. I popped a little CE Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet onto a piece of Dark Roast Coffee Card and cut 3 flower centres. I peeled away the backing and added Medium Clear Glass Micro Beads.

I completed my card by adding an 8mm White Pearl to each corner of my frame.
