Breath promise of Merry Sunshine......
and that’s just what the The Daring Cardmakers are hoping for as we embark on the dare this week.
Last week we were asked to make cards featuring Aquamarine, the March birthstone and this week Lynda would like to see cards that feature the flower of the month…..…The Daffodil.
Due to the lack of papers and embellishments featuring daffodils I resorted to cross stitch again and stitched this little Host of Golden Daffodils in a little pot.
When I came to put it onto a card I couldn’t really decide how I was going to do it.
My first thought was to use an aperture card but then I had the idea of making into something that resembled a little canvas and mounted it so that it stands out from the surface of the card.
The card itself I wanted to keep quite simple so I decided on mats of Navy Blue and Yellow and finished it off with the addition of some brads and ribbon.
