.......... that's the story with this card.
It started off as a 5 x 61/2" card (American size, sort of equivalent to our C6 - not a size I'm fond of, so I like this slightly larger version). The accident came when I made the box to put it in. It was a too small - aaaargh. I just couldn't get the motivation to make another so decided to make the card smaller. Chopped it in half and then realised that I would loose the mat and would have to mount it onto another card blank and be back to square one. What to do? Then I had one of those 'Eureka' moments 'why not make a stand for it. So that's why this ended up not quite as planned.
I used my Cameo to cut out the stand, the leaves,butterflies and flourish. The frame is a Nestie and the sentiment was done on the computer using a font called English.
I just used some roses, ribbon and tiny beads from my stash to finish.
I quite like how it turned out, so may do some more like this.
