Cream and Pearl Elegant Card No. 2

Welcome Back

When I make new designs I often make several cards using the same theme and flowers and this one is another card I made using the lovely lace edge die from Spellbinders, and I have teamed it with a beautiful embossing folder from Anna Griffin.  The lovely sparkle on the roses comes from Rajni Chawla’s Frosting Powder.  It is an amazing product that totally transforms your flowers and is currently being released worldwide.

Materials Used:

Cardstock – Shimmer cardstock, White cardstock, Purchased base card 7” x 5”

Dies – Spellbinders A2 Devine Eloquence, Graceful Floral Lace, Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose, Classic Rose Vines

Stamps – Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose, Classic Rose Vine, Classic Rose Leaf

Inks – Colorbox Coral Rose, Memento Bamboo Leaves, Versamark

Embossing Powder – Stampendous Aged Ivory

Heartfelt Creations Deluxe Shaping Kit

Art Glitter Dries Clear Adhesive

Art Glitter Ultrafine Glitter – Crystal

Embossing Folder – Crafters Companion Lattice Edge

Pearl strips

Gemini Machine

Spray Adhesive

Peelcraft sticker

Foam squares

Instructions:

I have used a pre-cut 7” x 5” card base but you can cut your own using a piece of white 10” x 7” cardstock and scoring at 5” along the long side and fold in half for your card.

Die cut the lace edge out from the shimmer cardstock and then emboss using the instructions for your die cut machine.  Adhere to the bottom edge of the card.  Cut a piece of shimmer cardstock at 7” x 2 ½” and adhere to the top of the card.  Cut a strip of shimmer card 7” x ¾” and emboss using the lattice embossing folder.  Adhere to the card as shown and line each edge with a pearl strip.

To make the sentiment frame die cut the small frame from the Devine Eloquence set and then emboss the die for a textured finish.  Adhere to the centre of the card using a double layer of foam squares to give height to go over the pearls.  Add the peelcraft sentiment.

To make the flowers stamp with Coral Rose ink, sponge the colour over the stamped images and then die cut.  Shape the roses using the Deluxe Shaping kit.  Once flowers are completed spray with spray adhesive and sprinkle Crystal glitter over them for a sparkly finish.

To make the leaves stamp using versamark and emboss with the Aged Ivory embossing powder.  Sponge with Bamboo Leaves and then die cut out.  Shape the leaves with the Deluxe Shaping kit.

Trim the leaves and add to the top right corner and bottom left corner using a combination of Dries Clear adhesive and foam squares.  Add the flowers as shown.

Happy Crafting
