Today's giveaway features my all time favourite Sentiment which is why I had to have a large version of it in my first release of stamps! This sentiment is taken from the Lotus frames and sentiments elements set from Creative Expressions. Here I have tied it with Spellbinders Labels 42 and Labels 42 decorative elements. These spellbinders dies are the ones I had on the show for my stamp release which is why they have been featured a lot recently. I am feverishly working away with Sue's dies for something in April, so there will be some (for that read quite a lot) of these featured later in the month.
Back to today's card, I started by stamping the sentiment, which as I said is one of my personal faves as it is really true, in black archival onto coconut white card and cutting it out with labels 42. Next I inked through the dies using stormy sky distress ink. Next I cut another label the same size and inked this one in black soot, very lightly, to give a contrast and make the sentiment 'pop'. I then cut 2 of the largest dies in the decorative accents in aqua foundation card and matted the 4 die cut together rotating them 90' each time within foam tape.
To make the card up I made a card blank at 21x21cm in aqua and added a few layers of White and aqua making each layer 1/2 a cm smaller each time. I ran a square of the coconut white card through the quilted flower embossing folder and added this.
To finish the central element I made a square mat at 16.5x16.5cm in aqua and added a 16x16cm panel. I then tied a strip of zircon seam binding around it twice and added the sentiment panel on the top. Finally I added a messy bow, which is made in a similar manner as my double bow which is featured on my video tutorials page, a pearl spray and small pearl embellishment to finish.
