A happy accident.............

.......... 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.

Beautiful card Sue. I love all the fiddly bits that you cut on your Cameo. I wish the Cameo files would work in my Pazzles,we dont have as much choice in WPC files. Linda x
