I'm launching a new One Day Special on Hochanda today at 6pm with some lovely Sue Wilson Dies. I hope you can join me.
Here's today's card -
This card was a bit of a labour of love (no pun intended) so I thought I'd share it today so that it doesn't get overlooked.
I have some of Phill Martin's embossing powders on the show and all 3 of them are the really the focal point of this card.
I started by cutting dies from Sue Wilson's Jennifer Die Set
out of Coconut White Card
- dies #1 and #2 together and dies #3 and #4 together. I pressed them into Clear Perfect Medium
. I added Chic Viola Embossing Powder
to 2 of the opposite corners, Titanium Embossing Powder to the other 2 corners and Decadent Denim Embossing Powder to the centre. I heat set them both and then added more Perfect Medium, more powder as before and heat set again.
I cut die #2 and die #4 from the Jennifer Die Set out of Coconut White Card and added my embossed pieces to them using CS Glue
I cut my letters for my sentiment out of Coconut White Card using Sue's Alphabet Grid Die Set
. I double embossed the letters in the same 3 Embossing Powders, alternating the colours used. I cut a banner out of Coconut White Card using Sue's Stitched Flags Die Set
- I made the banner longer and got points at both ends by keeping the straight edge outside of the cutting plates, turning the die around and slotting it back into place and cutting a second time still keeping that straight edge outside of the cutting plates.
I glued the letters in place using CS Glue, shaped my banner and added it to my Jennifer frame using Foam Pads
in the centre and CS Glue at the ends.
I cut the outer and inner dies all 3 sizes of the flowers from Sue's Pinwheel Floral Die Set
together out of Coconut White Card twice. I cut both of the leaves out of Coconut White Card twice. I double embossed the largest flowers with Chic Viola Embossing Powder.
I double embossed the middle sized flowers with Decadent Denim and the smallest ones with Titanium Embossing Powder.
For my background, I embossed a piece of Coconut White Card using the Creative Expressions Tulip Twist Embossing Folder
. I matted onto Stone Card
and then Coconut White Card.
I completed my card by adding some 8mm White Pearls
to the centre of the flowers and to the corners.
