Candi Flower

Here's the finished candi flower card. I used papers from the tiny prints set, also by Craftwork Cards (I love gingham). The sentiment stamps are bold and gorgeous - I cut mine, so that I now have effectively three sentiments - celebrate, in style, and celebrate in style.......I used an aniseed flexmarker to colour the leaves and little dots, and added just a few tiny gold beads



the butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch....


Going back to gingham - I have no idea why I love it so much, and always did, even as a child. When I dabbled in dressmaking in my teens in a desperate effort to extend my wardrobe, I seem to remember pink ginham - I think I wanted to look like Doris Day. (Younger readers, go and google ). I have had gingham curtains, cushions.....but these days, I get my gingham fix from pretty papers. Don't even get me started on polka dots, I could bore for Britain on that subject. So spots, dots, stripes and  checks  are all firm favourites. What patterns do you return to time after time?

See you tomorrow x

  2. Beautiful card! I've not commented before but I am now because I absolutely love gingham too! I don't know why either and I also started young! I see but I made my daughter a dress of pink gingham with a white pinafore. Too funny!

  3. This is lovely Enfys. The stamp is gorgeous with all the card candi. Love gingham papers too. I am also a spots and stripes girl. I just find them so versatile to use.

  11. Since I was a child I was always interested in dots, checks and stripes. I still love them. I always have paper, material, etc. in this design. What makes us so fond of these patterns? I guess it is the "little girl" in me.

  12. Oh yeah, I made two gingham dresses for my daughter and granddaughter, one in pink and one in blue with white ruffled aprons. They were full length and beautiful.

  13. Smashing card Enfys. I love gingham with memories of sitting by my mothe as she sewed gingham clothes for me. Now I sew using a lot of it as well as dots. Love, Joan in Port St. Lucie
