Bella Bleu B-Side card!

I wasn't too keen on the Barely Banana and Whisper White sides of the Bella Bleu designer papers, so I was determined to make something with it! The pack has sat on my desk for a few days until inspiration struck!!

The gentle, but fresh, colours made me feel spring-like, even though I sat watching it snow. I decided to take an idea from the little bag I made for the Stamp With Us challenge and do some faux stitching using my Mat Pack, Paper Piercer and white gel pen.

The base card is a standard A6 size using Kraft CS. I chose two complimentary paper designs and split them roughly 1/3 to 2/3 on the front of the card, a further complimentary paper strip was used to cover the join. On a piece of Kraft CS I drew a couple of stalks in pencil, then, using the pricking guide from the Mat Pack and a paper piercer, I pricked holes along the stalks. Using my white gel pen I created faux stitches in between the holes! I die cut some daisy flowers from Whisper White and Barely Banana, layered them with Crystal brads and stuck them at the top of the stalks. A knot of Whisper White grosgrain ribbon finished it off.
