It is quit a big card being 8" x 5.5" but the size is due to the scalloped die cut I used for making the blank card base. I have been trying to buy some more scalloped card blanks for ages but couldn't find the size I wanted when I came across this Large Scallop Card die by 'John Next Door.' As it was practically the same price as buying a ready made pack of blanks it won hands down. I also bought the Small Scallop Card die too. Now I will never run out of blanks, just cut my own. p.s. It also cuts like a dream with the added bonus you can cut the pattern paper with it too.
The digi is by Robyn's Fetish called 'Daisy Days'. Coloured using my Graph'it pens for a change and a gold gel pen. As usual I colour the digi first and then (with heart in mouth) go and look for a paper to match/compliment it.
I found this freebie one from Making cards August 2014 'Patchwork pals' had a flower on it in almost the identical design as the large daisy I had coloured in on the digi!!!! Luckily the sheet was large enough to die cut , then cut it in half and add to the front and inside of the card. After colouring I mounted onto blue card stock cut using my Prescut Rectangle die Stitch Hole PCD98. The sentiment was computer generated and cut with a woodware circle punch and then adhered to two further dies. The blue being Xcuts 'Bloom' die and the rasberry red Sizzix 657552 'Scallop Circle' die. Below is a close up of the digi showing the gold gel pen detailing which really sparkles as you turn the card to the light.
