Good Morning – hope you have started Friday off well and the day is going well. I have another card for you today from my Special Reason Class last weekend. I really do love this bundle and want to show you it’s more than just another flower set.
This card has a few elements to it and I was concerned that the ladies at class would get frustrated but they got through it with out any tears so they must have loved it right?
Here’s the card …
Looks involved right? It has lace, it has ribbon, it has vellum, it has leaves and flowers, it has a frame and, of course, it has grunge and rhinestones!
It’s not really as hard as it looks but it does take time doing each step and truly, once all the pieces are cut, it’s quite easy to put together. My ladies did well and agreed it truly is a piece of art – frame and all!
My card was inspired by this card by Claudia Maser – a demonstrator from Germany
- The Flowers and Leaves – all cut with the Stylish Stems Framelit Dies (Occasions p42)
- The Frame – cut with the Layering Squares Framelits Dies (Annual Catalogue p193)
- The Grunge – from Gorgeous Grunge (Annual Catalogue p123)
- The Sentiment – from Special Reason Stamp Set (Occasions p42)
There is literally two stamps on this card and that’s it. The rest is just a matter ofcutting and layering the pieces before sticking them down in place. When I do cards like this I lay all my pieces down and rearrangement them if I feel the need till it looks as I’d like it to and then I get out the Tombow Multipurpose Glue and the Mini Glue Dots and start adhering it all down.
Do you see the vellum leaves underneath? My card just needed something and just something as subtle as vellum leaves gave it the depth it needed and now I want to put vellum leaves on everything! Trust me – you’ll be noticing them over the next week or so!
