Monday Giveaway...All White again!

Happy  Monday,

I hope you all like today's card as it is this weeks giveaway.  Simply leave a comment and Mr ND will randomly select one commenter to receive this card.

I started by cutting a full panel of the new eternal rings striplet from Creative Expressions by Sue Wilson die in coconut white foundation card however I didn't use the outline die so that just the filigree section was cut.  Next I cut the outline die next to the flower filigree cut.

I then cut another of the triplet dies into a piece of white and foam mounted it behind the aperture.  I then mounted the whole piece onto a few layers of white with more foam tape.

Next I cut three of each of the Camilla open and closed petals, again in white, I added the open petals on top of the closed ones.  I filled the space with cosmic shimmer crystal lacquer this gives the flowers a beautiful domes effect and shine.  Hopefully the next picture will show this...




Finally I cut the two dies in the new Ivy set and added these to the trellis work before adding the flowers and a messy bow made with white seem binding...




Ingredients:
Coconut white foundation card
Craft Dies by Creative Expressions for Sue Wilson
Eternal Rings Striplet
Camila Open and closed petals
Ivy
Cosmic Shimmer crystal lacquer
White seem binding
Stick on petals in white


Just leave a comment to win this card,  Enjoy...

  4. Hi John. A gorgeous card and someone is going to win it, what a great way to start our week! I love the white on white, and the striplet looks great layered like this. I will be having a go at this one on Wed. when I meet with my lovely crafty friends : ) I must get some Cosmic Shimmer crystal lacquer though as I really the look it gives to some flowers : ) You did confuse me with your stick on PETALS in the Ingredients list. I wondered what new goodie I had missed. It took me a while to realise you meant PEARLS! (Ok, it's early isn't it : ) )
    Stay safe and warm. Take care.

  25. Hi John,
    Gorgeous card - I must be wanting spring to come because I'd just add the teeny weeniest touch of green to the ivy leaves.

  47. Hi John,
    Loving the white on white card today. There is something simplistic yet elegant about it. Like that you used real pearls on it. The PVC dots are nice but nothing beats real pearls.
    Happy crafting.
