Ornate Gardens in Blue…

Hi and welcome to my Blog.

Do you craft?

Did you know doing craft is a great way of relaxing and getting rid of all that stress….

In Australia we are having to stay home, trying to keep active in some way (that’s stress in it’s self)…and there is only so many times I can vacuum the floor in one day.

Find a craft, activity or a few different activities to do so then you have a variety. I always have a few different things on the go…most of the time I would say that’s not a good thing because then nothing gets finished. But at this point in time ‘variety is the spice of Life’.

Make sure that every 30 mins you get up and walk around the house…check on the kids, the cat or get a drink of water. Keep active…I’m lucky in that at my place I have a walking track in the house…when you walk in the front door you can go right go up the hall to family room and the continue through to the lounge and your back to the start…I’m just doing laps of the house.

What have made today?

I love Blue….For this card I used the different shades of blue along with Smoky Slate and Daffodil Delight from Stampin’ Up! ® Blends range to colour the flowers.I then used one of the frames from the Ornate Style bundle to cut the beautiful boarder. Use the Precision Plate when cutting out these frames, it will make cutting them so much easier. If you don’t have that plate then add a shim or a sheet of cardstock and run it though a few times until it has cut through.

The mat of Whisper White card stock was run through the Big Shot using the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.

I left this card free of any sentiment for two reasons, so it can be used for any occasion and I didn’t want to cover the stunning flowers.
