Where Ideas Bloom DT

Hello, my friends!

I have a new card to share with you today!

Many of you know I recently met my friend Marilyn in person for the first time.
This is the card I made for her to celebrate the occasion.

I was inspired by these sweet little Wooden Eyeglasses from Where Ideas Bloom.
I also used the lovely little Pink Floral Sequins, that you'll be able to find in the shop very soon!

If you haven't yet checked out the Where Ideas Bloom Shop,please do!
It's all loaded up and open for business.
Also, the rest of the DT girls have been very busy creating beautiful projects to inspire you.
You'll find all of them at the Where Ideas Bloom Blog.
Please head over there and join the blog.
That way you won't miss any of the fun! :o)

 I can honestly say that this is the trickiest and most time consuming card I have ever made.
It's actually an acrylic pocket card with multiple layers and dies.
The trick came in positioning everything "just so" to make it work!

The wooden frames were painted with silver metallic Smooch, and fastened to the acrylic with mini brads.
I then coloured the "lenses" of the glasses with my black Spectrum Noir marker. 
The acrylic was then adhered to the layered background with Score Tape on only three sides;
leaving the top open for the insert.
  I used several Cheery Lynn dies to frame the acrylic and hide the tape.
With that, the base was complete.


Moving on the the tag:
I used this fun image from Lacy Sunshine.
This image is made for Halloween but you know I don't do Halloween.
When I first saw it I thought it would be such fun to colour, and could be used for a get well card.
However, it also looks like someone who has had a lot of "work" done, right? ;o)
It was just perfect for this card!
So I coloured it and layered it up on this tag insert.


Finally, I made up my sentiment on the computer, printed it out, and added it to the back of the tag.
I included a personal message after the photo was taken.

  12. What a sweet idea....just love the sentiment you came up with. I also thought it was great that you took a Halloween image and turned it in your favour to something that was more useful. Those dies you used are just gorgeous, not sure my lil 'ole Cuttlebug would do such a great job with such a detailed die. Great job Nancy!
