Today you have I am sharing one of my cards with you, Inspired by John Lockwood, he was fantastic on Hochanda yesterday, he shared so much useful information, he made me really want to buy some Colour Cloud Inks !
Onto today's card, I started with an 8 X 8 inch card blank from Anna Marie Designs, I matted it with some Creative Expressions (CE) Iris Foundation Cardstock, and then a piece of white card embossed with (CE) Eternity Embossing Folder and then matted that over the Iris.
I then took another piece of White card and cut 3 (CE) Quilted Blocks Striplet Die cuts, I then used Iris card to cut a mat to layer the striplet die cut on to, this had a small border of the Iris card showing all the way around, I then die cut 3 of the striplet outline die cuts out of some double sided adhesive sheet, put it into the centre of the Iris striplet die cut and covered it with Cosmic Shimmer Iced Snow, I then added plenty of Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue to the White Striplet die cut and placed it onto the Iris mat, I repeated this for other two panels, and then glues these to my card base. (you must use plenty of glue to adhere the white striplet to the Iris panel as it has to adhere to the Iced Snow)
I took the Ornate Oval Just for You Die and cut the outer frame, the decorative Inner and the sentiment out of white card, then another of the larger ovals out of the Iris card, this has a piece of Double sided adhesive to it and some Iced Snow, I mounted the sentiment and the decorative inner onto the Iced snow covered oval, I put some double sided foam on the underside of the outer white frame, added a little Cosmic Shimmer glue for extra adhesion and placed it onto the Iris oval. I added some pearls all around the frame (although Paul managed to shift one out of place whilst photographing), I then added a few adhesive pearls to the Quilted Box die cuts, a satin ribbon bow, with a pearl dazzler in the centre and a tulle bow behind.
I finished the top and bottom of the card with a strip of pearl flowers.
I hope you like the card, I love the sparkle!
Have a lovely day,
Love and Hugs
