I hope you're enjoying the Spellbinders Pick of the Day with Sue. I love the new Decorative Elements dies - I have those on pre-order so should have them to play with soon and some in my Amazon Store.
Today's card started with the flower. I made it using Spellbinders Blossom Five just to see how it would work. Then, of course, I had to make a card so I could use it.
So, as I said the flower is made with Blossom Five - Sorry can't tell you the sizes I used as I don't have the card at the mo. I made it using some Creative Expressions Foundations paper called Floral Dream, same method as the flower on yesterdays card. The paper is double-sided and I used the other side for the backing paper popping it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Radiant Embossing Folder. I cut some 'leaves' using the Venetian Motifs die set.
I stamped the sentiment which is from the Studio 490 Sentimental Art Stamp Set using Cobalt Archival. I cut it out using the Spellbinders Venetian Motifs die set and then cut another from plain white card. I really is best to use some greaseproof paper when cutting these dies as they are very delicate. I stacked the motifs on top of one another turning slightly.
I popped some Self-Adhesive Film onto some Coconut White Card and cut a mask out using the Venetian Accents die set. I ran it through the machine a couple of times to make sure it had cut through the self adhesive film. I did not emboss it. I peeled of the backing and dipped it into some Creative Expressions Glass Micro Beads. This is a great way of using the mask die. It also looks great with glitter.
I assembled the card as shown adding some Creative Expressions Self-Adhesive Pearl Swirls and I pierced around the edges with my Tim Holtz Ruler.
Thanks for stopping by.
