Simple in Black & White

Sorry I'm a bit late in posting this card. I got the shape/idea from a card that Jackie Huckstep had made and then made it my own. Black and white always looks so good doesn't it? The centre cross over bit was embossed with a cuttlebug folder and the white sheet inserts behind and can be pulled out for the sentiment.

Always difficult.... crafting for a crafter!

It's always really difficult making a card for a fellow crafter - this one was for a demonstrator as well! However, Helen Meighan loves Daisies and this is one flower we did on a Jane Gill's class. It's very pale and soft - for those of you who know Helen, you'll know that she makes very pretty, soft cards, hope she liked it.

The Daisy was formed from a Woodware Daisy Punch (x2). The centre is then chalked to give a little green tinge and the yellow "dot" was cupped with an embossing tool. The leaves were from a Leone-Em punch. Scalloped and plain ovals and stamp - Stampin Up.
