Quilted Flowers

I haven't made an aperture card in ages, so I thought I would give it a go :0)  I started this one by folding a white sheet of A4 card in half and then trimming one inch from the front.  I added a strip of lace using DS tape and then covered the front with some card that I have had in my stash for years.  This one  is called Tasty cranberry by Memories complete.  I then used my nesties to cut the aperture and make the brown frame.

I used a piece of cream textured card stock inside the card and stamped along the edge using vintage photo distress ink.  I very rarely stamp in black any more as I find that browns can often give a softer finish.  Some times only black will do though :o)  I edged my stamped image with worn lipstick distress ink and then added lace. Lining your image up with your aperture is easy when you know how.  I line mine up in the aperture itself  and then close the card.     

Flowers next.  I'm still working on using multiple flowers on cards.  I think I am getting the knack of it now.  I added a bit of glitter glue to the tips of the flowers and to the flowers that I stamped on the edge for a bit of extra glitz.  The stamps that I have used came free with a magazine that I bought recently.

The sketch for this card came from this weeks challenge over at Card Patterns and I will also be entering this card for the challenge over at Allsorts Challenge Blog, who asked us to use flowers.
