Veel Liefs. With Love Birthday Card.

This card was the WINNER OF THE ROBYN’S FETISH CHALLENGE # 310. And it made it to Top 3 at Dies R Us #46 – Use Scallops 

Hello Bloggers,

Today’s card is Veel Liefs (With Love) with Crealies flowers 3D. Somehow, if you look at the samples made by the Crealies design team themselves, you won’t see many 3D flowers really. They prefer flat designs. I really like some dimension on my cards, so there they are, the flowers:

The embossing, the foam padding and the raised on foam dots sentiment add to the dimension.

I used the very old MD Cr1206 basket here, just because I like it a lot :) This card is generally quite a time mix: the very old swirls, the basket and the Spellbinders scalloped border date to years ago, on the other hand there is a rather new Joy! square label; the embossing folders are somewhere in between. :)

PS.Detail: Neat Edges

The Veel Liefs square label (Joy!Crafts 6002/0403) has a tiny green outline. Obviously it’s a green square under the label. It’s cut to the size with a guillotine, which already produces quite a neat edge. However I find that a little bit more attention to these edges brings them to a remarkably new level.
