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.

I’ve made a card and would like to enter it into a small number of challenges:

Here’s the card:

 cup74979_172 - card03 - Spring Daffodils Shattered Pyramid Sheet

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.
