Hello crafty friends and it’s another sunny morning here in Chester.
Whatever is it coming to – we’ve had sun 3 days in a row now!!!
So after the masculine card yesterday, I thought I’d even it up a bit and share one which is a bit more girlie, and ….
… it’s this one here.
I made this card up when I was demoing at Bolton and I used creams and whites, and I was quite pleased how it turned out. So I made it up again using pinks : )
I used one of my fave EVER Tonic Studios Dies and this is the beautiful Deco Oval Trellis set.
The base card is an 8x8 and it’s cut to just over 5 1/2” wide, and I added a pink mat using dimensional pads. Then I cut a slightly smaller piece in white and using the largest inside edge, I ran it through the machine, then stuck it down onto the pink mat, again using dimensionals.
Then I cut another piece from white card using both the outside and inside edges, added some Nuvo Diamond Glitter around the edge using a Nuvo Glue Pen, then I stuck it down onto the card, lining it up carefully with the pattern underneath.
Finally I cut another in pink from the smallest outside edge and added that, again using dimensionals.
You may have guessed that I love building up layers!!
I made some little blooms using the flower elements from the Entwining Trellis Plush Peony Die set.
For the 2 largest flowers, I cut one in white and another from pink using the largest flower die, then I used tweezers to gently curl the edges back before running a ball tool over them to bring the petals up. Then I layered them together. I cut another in white using the second smallest flower and then ran the ball tool over it and then stuck it down.
I made one more using the second largest and the smallest flower dies, which I stuck down onto a bow I’d made.
Next I added some Nuvo Crystal Drops in Pearl White to the edge of the centre pink mat and also the centre of each bloom.
Finally I cut a small oval using one of the elements from the Tent Gift Bag Die Set, stamped a sentiment onto it then stuck it down.
And that’s the card all done.
Thank you for stopping by today and enjoy the sunshine.
Crafty hugs to all,
