Hi there everyone. Another birthday and I made this card using a Spellbinder's die set called Flowers Whisper which I very luckily won over at The Snippets Playground recently and I used snippets of gold mirri and white card to die cut this pretty flower, and I also used another snippet of white for the added mat which I cut and then added the fancy edge to using a set by Claritytstamp which cut into the card called Fresh Cuts Nested Doodle Frame-Its. There are two sets with five different edges in each, and then a die which cuts out all ten frames using one die to do so.
After cutting the mat and adding the fancy edge I cut the flower die twice in gold and then white and used the gold frame which I stuck onto the ornate mat, and I then infilled the leaves with the gold pieces, and the flower itself with the white. I also added the sentiment which I embossed using WOW Metallic Gold Rich Embossing Powder. I decided that the flower would look better with a bit of added colour so I ink blended the petals with Spun Sugar Distress Ink being ultra careful not to get any pink on the surrounding white frame. I then finished by attaching it to the card.
Thank you for visiting my blog today and I hope to see you again soon.
