Big and bold

Good morning everyone, I hope you are all as well as you can be, if a little damp...hugs
I know we needed rain, but it started raining here last night just after 7pm, and it hasn't stopped yet!!!

I was inspired by a Docrafts member to make these cards This is what she made (hope the link works) and these are my take on them.

 Basecard for this one is PMD ivory linencard, folded and cut to fit 6x6 envelope. I used ivory because it is softer than the white of the other card.
Flower petals punched with SU.
Flower centre cut with the smallest Spellbinders oval die.
Backing cut from a 6x6 square (from stash) with Memory Box square stitched die.
Foliage cut with Cheery Lynn die.
Tiny beads from stash to finish off.

For this one I used a 7x7 card blank from?
Frame is the negative from the card above.
Flower made the same way.
Foliage cut with Marianne die.
Sentiment stamped and cut with SU.
I found lots of seed beads whilst delving into boxes looking for something else and used some for the flower centre.
Flowers are raised with sticky foam pads.
They really are very simple to make so I cut some kits for my friends to make last night, it was my turn to host our Friday session :o)
