Birthday Dogwood

Good evening,

Here's a card I made today for a commission. I don't get many of these and usually panic when I get asked for something!!

I apologise for the awful photograph but I won't get the chance to take a picture of this one in daylight as DH is taking it to work with him in the morning.

I've used a Hero Arts stamp called Dogwood and heat embossed with with clear embossing powder and added some Crystal stickles to the flower centres. I LOVE this stamp, it is so versatile and beautiful too. I also stamped the same image onto the envelope. It's great that it's a large stamp, just what I needed for an A5 card.

Enjoy your evening!

Hugs, Clare xx

Oh wow Clare this is beautiful I love that image and the clean and simple style gives this such a classy and elegant look to it. I know what you mean about being in a panic when asked to do a card for someone else I'm exactly the same.

Hi Clare

I think we are all struggling with decent light to take our photos. I waited all week hoping for a ray of sunshine and in the end took them in the kitchen under the lights.

I love Hero dogwood, it's such a versatile stamp and your use of it here is so elegant.
