Dydd Gwyl Dewi Hapus
I Chwi I Gyd
Happy St. David’s Day
Dydd ein nawddsant yw hi,
Dydd i gofio Dewi.
Fe aeth allan i bregethu,
Ac roedd hefyd yn addysgu,
Ym mhob cornel fach o Gymru.
Boed yn ddiwrnod braf i chwi.
Ive made a card and would like to enter it into a small number of challenges:
- Glitter Geeks – Week 8 – St.Davids Day
- Allsorts Challenge Blog – Week 143 – It’s Your Choice
- Creative Inspirations – Challenge 152 – Anything Goes!
Heres the card:
This is how I made it:
The topper on this card is a little bit different in that it’s a “shattered pyramid” (Spring Daffodils Shattered Pyramid Sheet by Sarah Edwards). This sort of topper design is easy to cut out and not to difficult to put together – although I do put some glue on the back of the foam strips I use to attach the pieces to allow me to slip them into place. The base card is an 8″ x 8″ white card with a decorative edge (Cupcake Crafting 8×8 inch Scalloped Cards – I think). To the front of this I attached a panel of background Floral Swirls A4 Backing Paper by Ammie Sanders which I’d printed onto Super Smooth white cardstock and cut with a wavy edged cutter. I matted the base image of the shattered pyramid onto a piece of Centura Pearl Snow White card-stock and trimmed to give a fine border. I then matted this onto a piece of green Satin Board. I wrapped a piece of yellow organza with satin border ribbon around the spine of the card and tied it in a bow before attaching the matted image to the card front using 2mm deep, double sided foam tape. I used 1mm deep, double sided foam tape to attach all the “shattered Pyramid” pieces. I finished off the card with two peel-offs – a silver draggon in the bottom left corner, and a greeting “Cyfarchion” (Welsh for “Greetings”) the other side.
