Friend to Friend

Hi there Blogger Friends!
Today I am posting a card I made for the
CAS Mix Up Blog and this months challenge
is using something I have had on my 
'Techniques to Try List' Rubber Bands.

This was so much fun using
Rubber Bands, Stamping, Heat Embossing, Dies.

I started by adding rubber bands to an acrylic block
then Versamarking onto my white card stock with
Yellow and Egyptian Gold Glitter embossing powder
randomly over the page.
I cut this with a stitched die and also 
the MFT peek a boo die.
I then cut out my gifted daisy die several times
in white and leaves in gold and vellum.
Attached the popped background then attached
my daisy which I finished off by adding
some lemon flower soft to the centre.
To complete my card I added my SU sentiment
with the gold glitter and popped after cutting it
also from a MFT stitched die.

And there you have it!
I enjoyed this technique and 
have more in the making. 
Couldn't stop at one!

Till next time - Thanks for dropping in.
Love reading your Comments.

Love this card. I wondered how you did the background until I read your description. I haven't seen that technique for a long time. Great design here and I really like your colors. Cutting out the little square for dimension and then having just the flower for the focal is genius!!

This has elegance written all over it, SS! I haven't done this technique in a long time. I love that you embossed it. I never would have thought to do that. Very stunning card.

It is fun isn't it, Ina? I played around with the technique using my new brayer and have a card ready for posting. I never thought of heat embossing the marks but it looks wonderful, as does that gorgeous flower.

Wonderful card design and I love your rubber band background. It has been ages since I did that technique!

Sometimes these techniques are addicting aren't they, Ina? Your gold rubber band stamping is so pretty and elegant! Love that daisy with the soft yellow center! Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up!

So pretty Ina. I have only done the rubber bad technique once, It did not turn out this well. Love that you just added the one flower to let the background be the star.
