Daisy Teapot Card

I am inspired this year to make as many construction cards as possible,so this week I made my first gatefold card. It took me ages to make this card and I fiddled with the Copic colouring, added glitter and dimensional magic to the flowers, and then layered them with dimensional adhesive. I literally killed one set of flowers beyond retrieval with the heat gun (don’t ask) but in the end all the flowers looked pretty. I seem to have an affiliation with bright colours especially pink and green and I really enjoyed the coloring in part …a lot!!!   I decorated inside and out to match, and fell in love with this teapot which even has some gorgeous polka dots on it. I cut a second bee out and layered him over the top, the larger wing I cut and pulled forward to give the effect of flight. The line of tiny words under the bee inside the card says…You’re one in a Buzzillion…Naturally this teapot says it all, friendship and a cup of tea… what more could you want!!!!Daisy Teapot January 2012 010
