A Smiley Pear





Here is a little card I made using some digi papers from Cosmo Cricket, some diecuts and a bit of stamping and spraying.








The background was printed, trimmed and stuck in place.  I used dies to cut the two oval mats. One in Brown and one with a pear design.  These were layered directly onto the card.








The pear stamp (A Stamp In The Hand) was stamped in Archival sepia ink and trimmed out, then coloured with a lime green alcohol ink pen.  This was mounted on foam pads.  The flower was made from printed cardstock which was die-cut using my Cricut and once assembled was sprayed with Green Dylusions spray.  This was stuck in place at the top of the card.








The mini tag was diecut and stamped with Papertrey Inc stamps and dies.  This was also mounted on foam pads after applying a brad. before colouring with the lime green alcohol ink pen.

The two flourishes were also die cut with a Sizzix die and stuck in place as shown.  Because of the dimension of the flower the card will be packed into a box.  I have entered this into the Simon Says Challenge too !
