Totally over the top ~ but I love it!!!


Today’s card is totally over the top – I love it but it is a card that you would have to give in person rather than put in the post because I just don’t think it would survive!

It is one of my footling cards – I shared one a couple of years ago – footling was a favorite expression of my beloved Aunt Di ~ is just picking up some ‘items’ and playing with them until something comes together .

So here goes……………..



The card has a little bit of pretty much everything – die cutting, dry embossing, sponging, stamping (inside) metallic thread, rhinestones, Wink of Stella.

Card Base:  11 x 4 1/4 Blushing Bride ~ scored at 5 1/2

Inside layer : 5 1/4 x 4 Whisper White Card

Ink Color: Blushing Bride

All the dies used in the card come from the Botanical Builder Framelits and the side pieces were cut by lining up the die on the front of the card before running thru the Big Shot then flipping the card over and placing the die on the back of the card front ( if that makes sense!)   Once the cutting was done it was run back thru the Big Shot with the Elegant Dots embossing folder.

Then it was out with my scraps of Blushing Bride, Basic Black and Whisper White to cut out, sponge and curl the various flowers, leaves and stamens.

Anyway – I enjoyed my footle and got a very pretty card from it.  Let me know your thoughts 🙂
