It's Your Day!

Hi, everyone!
I have a card to share today that I made using lot of my new crafty goodies. Here's a look at it :

To create this card, I first took an A2 card base and die-cut a frame which was slightly smaller than my base. You must be bored seeing this frame die on all my recent cards, but it's my absolute fave currently and I love using it for my card panels :D
Then, I die-cut a circle using the Stitched Circles die by Gina Marie. I further die-cut this circle to create a ring which I then colored using Tumbled Glass Distress ink. I then inlaid the die-cut circle back into the negative space and added a die cut hexagon border in the back which was also colored using Distress ink Fossilized Amber. This die was a recent buy and is by MFT. Sadly, it just got retired :(

I them stamped some flowers using the Daisy Blooms set by Mudra. These flowers have only two step stamping and so do the leaves, so I first stamped the base colors using Altenew inks and for the second layer I heat embossed it using Ranger Super Fine Gold Embossing powder.
The flowers and leaves were then fussy cut and foam mounted on the card base. I stamped and die-cut the banner before placing it on the centre of the die cut circle. I love the Mango Smoothie ink by Altenew, it's such a nice, and bright happy yellow colour. The sentiment is from the Brushed Sentiments set, again by Mudra.
I finished the card with some black spatters using Black Acrylic paint and a few sequins from my favorite, Pretty Pink Posh.

I'm linking this to the Ranganjali Challenge- My favorite technique is layered stamping & die-cutting, and I have incorporated both in my card, HLS - Anything Goes with Dies challenge, Wow Challenge- Flowers, Stempelgarten - Flowers and plants and SSS - Around the Border ( Used a frame die )

I hope you liked my card. I would love to hear your comments/suggestions regarding it :)

Have a nice day everyone!


  1. Such a beautiful card, Hussena! I did feel that you have used the die so much, but if the results are cards so fantastic, I have absolutely no complaints!! ;)
    I somehow feel like this one has a distressed look, although it is actually not so.. but I do love how it looks! Amazing!

  2. Wow Hussena... a happy floral card... love the honey comb design... and love the flower pot behind the card. I bought a colourful set myself and i use it as a stationary holder.
