Thank You

Hi Bloggers.

I have another Wisteria coloured card today - I seem to be reaching for that alot at the moment.

I cut the largest 2 dies of Sue Wilson's New Zealand Background Die Set (I'm currently out of stock of this die but will have more soon) out of Wisteria Card, leaving a border around the edge so it measured 7" x 5". I love the pierced detail on this one. I trimmed a piece of Coconut White Card so it was just a tad smaller and glued it to the back of the background.

I cut dies #3 and #4 together (where #1 is the smallest) out of Coconut White Card and glued the die cut to the fall away piece when I cut the background. I added them to the background using 3d Foam.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Elegant Sentiments Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Blue Violet Archival. I cut it out using #3 die from Sue's Wellington Die Set. I cut the #2 die from the New Zealand Background Die Set out of Wisteria Card and matted the pieces onto my card using 3d Foam.

I cut all the dies in Sue's Sweetheart Flowers Die Set - the open petals in Coconut White and the complete petals in Wisteria. I glued the open dies cuts to the complete ones at the centre only and added some White Pearls. I cut some leaves out of Coconut White Card using Sue's Laced Edged Leaves Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 3mm White Pearls to the flowers in the background die cut and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.

The Crystal Sparkle PVA that I used in this post is due in today and can be ordered from my website here.

Thanks for stopping by.
