Winter Fun

I've not made anything this week as been laid low with another cystitis attack and  Sis has had a IBS attack too so we have been commiserating with each other on the phone.  
I'm showing another of the Stamperia Rice paper cards that  I made. This is the second one in the set. 

I adhered the rice paper image to wide  d.s tape and then onto white cardstock as the image was semi translucent I didn't want another colour showing through. I then trimmed down so just the border was showing on the edge and attached to navy pearlescent  cardstock and then a larger piece of blue card stock.  I die cut the sentiment from  navy cardstock and then used the negative  part for this card. The sentiment is by Britannia dies and has gone back into my stash for using at a later date.  I then die cut the  Elaborate Edge Corner by Tonic from a scrap of  the same navy  pearlescent card . The corner die comes in two pieces and I have used the outside edge here. The inside edge is on another of the cards still to be shown. Adhered everything onto a piece of navy cardstock and then onto the white card base.

A striking card Mrs A., those are beautiful images, and an unusual corner die sets it all off xxx

Oh no, thank goodness you spread it and one didn't have both, on the plus side the antibiotic would deal with all - sorry my sick sense of humour being a regular on all counts.

Love the fabulous image of your card.

Good for you using this stunning paper for a card. It would be so hard to part with this. The card is simply gorgeous. I'm so sorry you are still having those episodes of cystitis. That is so painful so it's good to see you posting.

PS. I used to have cystitis every few days, then a lapse and then a few more days. My niece was the same, I discovered by drinking a pint of lemon water each evening and drinking more, I don't get it now, neither does my Niece. Such a painful condition. Hope it clears soon.

Greta said...

Oh how miserable! Hope you both feel better soon. This is really beautiful!
