Quick and Simple Friend Card With Deco Oval Die

Just a quickie little 6" x 6" card today.

I used a shop bought scalloped edge white card blank and cut a layer of spotty paper out of the Forever Moments Vintage Paper pack, I inked the edge with Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress Ink just to age it slightly.

I cut the smaller outer edge die from the Deco Oval trellis set from a different colour spotty paper out of the same paper pack and another out of white card which, again, was inked.  These were layered together and stuck to the top right of the card front with 3d foam pads for dimension.  The 'If Friends Were Flowers' sentiment was cut from matching patterned paper, inked very lightly and glued onto the layers.

The flourish was die cut out of the same matching patterned papers using one of the dies out of the Weaving Laurel die set and some flowers cut from white and the off cuts from the base layer were cut using the flower die out of the Flora Frames die set.

The card was finished with a few pearls as flower centres on the larger flowers and also on the sentiment.

I hope you like it
