Today's card was a variation of one that Sue Wilson made. I had slightly different dies on the One Day Special shows so I remade it so I could demo it and didn't really manage to demo much of it after all!
Coconut White Card using the Creative Expressions Dotted Daisies Embossing Folder - my piece of card just fitted perfectly. I matted onto Custard Card, Pastel Green Card and another piece of Coconut White.
Sue's Hobnail Vase out of Coconut White Card 3 times. I trimmed the top third off one and on another I removed the feet and cut two thirds off it. I added CS Pearl Lustre Gilding Polish to all 3 vases.
I cut the 2 dies with flowers on them from Sue's Lily of the Valley Die Set out of Pastel Green Card 4 times and out of Coconut White Card twice. I removed the flowers from 2 of the Pastel Green die cuts as I wanted just the foliage from these. I removed the flower buds from the White die cuts a few at a time and glued them to the 2 remaining complete Pastel Green Die Cuts. I arranged these on my card with the tallest vase added on top with several layers of CE Mounting Cushion.
Sue's Spring Daffodils Die Set out of Rich Green and out of Custard Card. I cut the heads off the Custard ones and glued them to the Green ones. I cut 3 trumpet pieces out, shaped them and added them to my flowers. I arranged them on my card inside the middle sized vase which I added with layers of Mounting Cushion. I also added a little more foliage by cutting the dies once more.
Creative Expressions Petite Lavish Sentiments onto Coconut White Card using Watering Can Archival. I cut it out using one of the pair of dies from Sue's Indonesian Collection Mini Frames Die Set. I cut the outer die out of Custard Card and glued the the 2 pieces together, adding my sentiment with a piece of Mounting Cushion.
5mm White Pearl to each corner.
