GOING O.T.T. WITH MARIANNE CREATABLES

It's a beautiful Saturday here with the sun playing out with gusto!
I do hope the sun is shining for you all ;o)
Later this afternoon it's my granddaughter Avah's 4th birthday party and here's the card I made for her.

It's a bit O.T.T. for me, but little girls do like frills n things :lol:


The base card is just a folded circle cut with the magnetic circle cutter from WRMK...
The card stock crease cracked a bit when folded, so that mistake is covered with another strip cut with MS border punch and finished with a ribbon and bow.

The topper starts with a good sized (135mm diameter) Marianne Creatable LR0112. This die set comes with the 2 flourishes that I weaved into the finished card. It also comes with a rather nice flower and snowflake die, so quite alot there for your money ;o)

The smaller die cut frame is a Nellie's Multi Frame MFD005
Decoupage is Morehead
The lace flower I made out of bright white lace dipped into strong coffee, squeezed out in a tea towel to remove most of the strong colour before airdrying.
Avah's name is die cut from a set by Sizzix (Cattycorner)

This started out as a rocker card but, when I attached the lace flower embelli, it kept leaning to the left and looked odd. So a small amount of card is trimmed from the bottom to allow it to sit straight.

Many thanks for stopping by xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
