OK I've made one of those cards that I really don't like - I think it's just not me iykwim. The worse thing is it wasn't a quick and easy card to make, there was lots of fiddling and faffing around and I can't help resenting the amount of my precious time it took up!! My SIL saw and it and immediately said "Mum would love that!!" So I think I'm going to give it to my MIL for her birthday. The photograph makes the flower look like it's a pale salmon pink when infact it is actually almost the same shade as the card candy - so not sure what's going on with my photo - sorry!!
I made the card base using some ultra thick card from my stash. The white card with green swirls was created simply by running a piece of white card thorough a Sizzix Embossing Folder and then swiping the raised area with Distress Ink. The flower was made from a DoCrafts 3D Flower Stamp. I stamped the petals multiple times onto some pink textured paper, cut them out and added some dimension with a ball tool. The petals were then stacked and glued. The centre was stamped onto yellow paper, shaped and then glued into place with silicone glue. Once dried I added some Stickles. The leaves were stamped onto some green paper and again shaped with a ball tool. The Card Candy has been coloured with Promarkers.
