A little krafty...

Hi's a wee quickie from me this evening!  

I have been busy playing with my new toy today, just trying to work out how everything works...

This has to be the most on the spur of the moment purchase I have ever made...just hope I have made the right decision!!

So onto the card, I actually made this the other night....and now I quite like it!!

This has to be one of the easiest cards to make, so first I die cut a piece of kraft card, I then stamped a few different stamps from the set called Water Blooms from Mama Elephant using a versamark stamp and then embossed with with embossing powder. Unfortunately this stamp set is out of stock but will be available soon. I then stamped some black spots. I aslo added black to the centres of a few of the flowers just for a little more detail.  The sentiment is also from the same stamp set. I added a die- cut scalloped strip and added some little pearls to this.

This is a gorgeous card Fiona, I love the look of white on kraft and the touch of black finishes it perfectly. Love the font of that sentiment :)

Its a beautiful card Fiona, really love the look of kraft cardstock with white embossing.
Look forward to hearing how you go with the Scan n Cut. I want one so badly but with our dollar so low I am still pondering do I or dont I.
