Thank you Card
Again, Good afternoon everyone. I promise this will be the last card for today, this is a flatter card from me, you know how I love doing quite Dimensional cards, but I guess it's good to make a flatter card to cut cost's at the post office, as this will fit in an envelope. I hope you like it.
Cosmic Shimmer- Flake & Glitter glue
Stampendous- Rose stamp
Craftynotions- Gilding Flakes, Verigated Green
Sue Wilson- French Collection- Provence
White seam bindind ribbon
Random rose mould
Marther Stewart- Crafter's Clay
Odd piece of green material for the leaves
I started with an 8X8 White card, then with a slightly smaller piece of white card I stamped it with
flake & glitter glue using the rose stamp. As Sue say's you must clean off your stamp before using the flakes, as the glue could damage your stamp. Sprinkle the flakes onto the glue and using a rubbit scrubbit pad move the flakes over the glue until covered. Then still using the rubbit scrubbit pad lightly rub to take away excess flakes and return to pot. I then cut and embossed the largest of Sue's dies from the Provence set with white card and then used Tim Holtz Distress ink, I used iced spruce, wild Honey and also mixed the two until I had a suitable shade of green mix. I used a piece of cut and dry foam on all 3 colours to make a marbled effect. I then cut the rest of the Provence dies out and embossed them and stamped part of the sentiment, ( For my Friend ) from Creative Expressions fanciful phrases, then layered them using sticky pads for a little dimension. I then made some roses with crafter clay, cut a few leaves, tied a messy bow with seam binding ribbon and attached the roses.
I hope you like this different one for me.
