Flourishes and Corners

This time tomorrow, I will hopefully be in Kent waiting to meet up with a lovely group of ladies.  We are going out for a meal and then off to the Clarity workshop on Wednesday and Thursday. I am really looking forward to it.  I have been to plenty of workshops, including other Clarity ones, but Cowden is really very special.  There is a wonderful atmosphere there - I wouldn't miss it!
This is another of my DT cards for HSE 24, this time using the remountable set  - Corners and Flourishes

I made two borders along the edges of a square piece of Theuva card by stamping the tiny corner stamp back to back
Ink round the edges of the card and lightly sponge colour over the whole area.
I used a Spellbinder DLite die to cut two squares and a small circle
Stamp the corner round the edge of the squares and blend some ink round the edges.
Stamp the greeting in the circle and ink round the edges.
Offset the two squares and stick together with the circle in the centre, mount in the centre of the other square
Stamp the tiny bow from the set, colour in, cut out and stick at the top of the squares
Mat onto the base card and add gems along the edge to embellish

The centre circle is not quite so stark white as shown in the picture here, it is actually more or less the same as the background!

There you have it - I'm off to pack...

Take care x
