Cherish Every Moment

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -
Ha ha! Looking at this photo the flower looks huge but I don't usually use the largest flower in a die set so this time I did! I doesn't look that big in real life! Anyhow, I like it!

So, the background is Coconut White Card embossed with the Creative Expressions Bed of Roses Embossing Folder.

I cut the largest die from Sue Wilson's Auckland Die Set out of Wisteria Card. I then cut the largest 2 dies together out of Coconut White Card twice. I glued these 2 die cuts together and then glued them onto the Wisteria die cut. I 'coloured' in the flowers in the die cut using CS Crystal Sparkle PVA (some on order!) and put aside to dry. Once dry, I cut the largest 2 dies in the Auckland Die Set again and then added this die cut to the top of the others to give a neat finish.

I stamped the sentiment from Phill Martin's Mini Baroque Inspirational Sentiments Stamp Set using Blue Violet Archival. I cut it out using a die from Sue's Wellington Die Set. I cut a mat out of Wisteria Card using a die from the Auckland Die Set.

I cut some leaves out of Coconut White Card using Sue's Laced Edged Leaves. I made a huge flower (lol) using Sue's Orange Blossom Complete Petals and Open Petals and added an 8mm White Pearl.

I assembled the card as shown adding some White Pearl Corners and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.
