Petite Petal Striplet

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

I started by creating an acetate background. I popped a little CS Clear Varnish Lacquer onto my Craft Sheet. I added a drop of CS Rose Pink Intense Pigment Stain and a little CS Frosty Dawn Diamond Frost. I added it to a piece of  Heat Emboss Acetate in patches. I added some more Varnish Lacquer to my Craft Sheet and this time added Citrus Lime Intense Pigment Stain and Aurora Sparkle Diamond Frost. I added this to the gaps in my Acetate and then moved both colours around a little so that the while area was covered and put aside to dry (about 20 mins).

I cut both dies from Sue Wilson's Petite Petal Striplet out of Coconut White Card. I cut the outer die out of my Acetate background and out of Coconut White Card. I glued my decorative die cut on top of the acetate and then onto the Coconut White piece.

I popped a little Rose Pink Intense Pigment Stain onto my Craft Sheet and brushed it onto a piece of Coconut White Card. I did the same with Citrus Lime Intense Pigment Stain. I cut the striplet from the both and used the fall away pieces for the flowers and leaves on my striplet panel.

I stamped the sentiment from the Woodware On the Bright Side Stamp Set onto a Piece of Coconut White Card using Onyx Black Versafine Ink. I matted onto Black Card and then Coconut White Card. I added my striplet panel using CE Mounting Cushion.

I cut the largest 2 pairs of dies from Sue's Pinwheel Floral Die Set out of Coconut White Card. I cut the outer dies only out of my Acetate background and out of Coconut White Card. I glued the pieces for each size together and made my flower adding an 8mm White Pearl to the centre.

I cut a pair of leaves using Sue's Windswept Grasses Die Set out of my card that I coloured with the Citrus Lime Intense Pigment Stain.

I completed my card by adding a 5mm White Pearl to the corners.

Thanks for stopping by.
