I make no secret of my Love affair with Daisy Mae Designs. This is one of the older collections that I managed to get my hands on second hand on eBay. I have paired it with dies from my August Papercraft Society box and used a technique to cut the image that I saw used in the new Creative Stamping Magazine Issue 86. I haven't actually got around to reading the magazine yet. I just saw the technique while I was waiting for the kettle to boil. So have only read that snippet.

There is a video on my YouTube Channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner. I have used a different editing app which means I can speed up my videos and add a voice over. I think it works better but please let me know your thoughts. It means the videoing is easier, as I can break off when I need to and don't have to start again if one of the kids barges in half way through. But it does mean the editing takes a little longer. So has its pros and cons!

Cardmaking Tutorial

To begin I stamped and coloured the image

The image was then cut using 2 of the torn oval dies which were positioned as you see in the picture below

The intricate wreath was cut from Kraft card, while the wreath background was cut from patterned polkadot paper from the works. A sprig of corn die was also used on the Kraft card

These are arranged as below onto the green card base. 
The hessian ribbon was taped onto the bottom of the card and a bow made from twine and tiny buttons were added. As well as a few clear drops
The sentiment is the one from the badger stamp set and was heat embossed in Wow Earthtone Mint

I am entering this into the following challenges

Thanks for reading
