pearl card 19 x 19
pearl card 18 x 18
extra pearl card for sentiments and strip
flower stamp by Dimension Forth
silver embossing ink
antique rose distress ink
spellbinder embossibilty folder
Martha Stewart punch
I started with the 18 x 18 card and I wanted to emboss it so I had to cut it to fit into the folder as I only have a cuttlebug and it wouldn't fit. I then distressed with the pink ink.I joined it back together and covered it up with a piece of mirri and a piece of pearl card that had both been cut with the punch and I distressed the white strip.
I them made the flowers by stamping them out with versamark and embossing with silver. I then added the pattern on them with the pink ink and added more colour to the reverse of the vellum when the ink was dry on the patterned side. I printed the sentiments onto some pearl card (after mega fights with my new printer that isn't a patch on my old one) I covered with embossing powder as it was coming out of the printer and the ink was still wet to catch it. I made faux nesties out of mirri and mounted it on the card.
I made a box to fit and added the name to one side, I inked up a strip and stamped with a stamp out of the flower set, and added another flower. I really enjoyed making this card as it is a mix of allsorts.
