Just Because

Hello bloggers, today's card is a lovely 'just because' card.  I really love the papers I have used on this one.

This card began as a 5x7 card blank.  First I adhered some striped paper down the left side of the card and then added some floral paper down the other side. The papers were from my stash and i think they were free ones.   Next using some white card stock and Spellbinders Borderabilities 'poinsettia' I die cut the strip that goes across the card.  Once die cut and still in the die I inked through with peeled paint and festive berries distress inks.  This was then adhered to the card blank with foam tape and then cut to size.  Next I stamped out the sentiment using Staz-on ink pad and Polka Doodles 'sentational sentiments' stamp set.   This was die cut using Spellbinders back to basic tags and the edges were inked with a ProMarker.  It was then attached to the floral strip with a red pearl effect brad. The floral strip was then adhered to the bottom of the card blank.  Finally using Spellbinders 'blossom five' die set I die cut three different sized flowers from coloured vellum.  I then went over them with an embossing tool to give them definition and texture from the white lines.  This was then layered up and adhered to the card.
