Celtic Charm


Hi and Good Morning  :)  I hope everyone is enjoying some lovely summer weather?

My card this week for Cheery Lynn Designs uses some of the gorgeous celtic borders, mixed with some wonderful classic and newer dies too.

I started off with a 6 x 6 inch card base, and layered MME paper onto DCWV textured card.

I cut 2 different celtic borders, Celtic Band and Celtic Weave and then cut 2 x Ivy Corner Flourish, chopping one in half to rearrange the form.  Both flowers were made from Shasta Daisy Strip and held together with a pearl brad.

I coloured my digi image (Crafts & Me) in then matted onto a scalloped rectangle.  I cut the Dream Big words and layered onto both the image and tag.

Pretty simple card, but I think the dies all tie in together so well!

All dies used on this card are:

B200 - Celtic Band
B201 - Celtic Weave
B310 - Shasta Daisy
B261 - Tags 2
B315 - Ivy Corner Flourish
CM-2 - Scalloped rectangle
B245 - Dream Big

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, im still struggling to keep on top of things, but I will be back properly soon.  Dont forget there is always fresh daily inspiration over on our Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration Blog, so remember to take a look and checkout our weekly challenges too!.

I hope you have a smashing week!

So classy with the delicate colours & absolutely beautiful with those Celtic die-cuts echoing the patterning in the image. The way you've used the die-cut words is terrific too.
Take care of yourself
Much love
