It was brilliant to meet so many people yesterday at Daisies don't forget we are doing it all over again today! Today's card is a simple stamped card perfect for a lazy sunday which I won't be having this week either!
I stated by stamping the rose trellis triplet stamp successively down a sheet of pink card from my stash with perfect medium. I them dusted pearlescent mica powder across the stamped area. Perfect medium makes the mica adhere to the stamped image and on a deep shade gives a beautiful shine as well as looking like a watermark. I cut this piece into a panel and added it to a 18x18cm square of coconut white foundation card which I had matted onto vintage silver foundation card (I am kind of running a pink, white and silver theme this week as we all do when we get crafting!)
Next I stamped the rose bud from the rose bud elements stamp set on to the pink and heat set it with cosmic shimmer detail silver embossing powder adding a sentiment from the same set. I then cut it out using the centre die from the Sue Wilson Caribbean collection background die. I matted it onto a piece of silver foundation card and hand cut a border around it.
To make the medallion I die cut a piece of vintage silver foundation card and drew around the outside of the die as this die is an inset and doesn't cut around it. It is then easy to cut the shape using a pair of scissors. I then added this to a pice of the pink card and cut the pink card along the line of the silver. Finally I added PVA pearls around the frame, this die gives you a little circle to place the glue dots on which means you can't get them in the wrong place! A simple 21x21cm card blank with a layer of coconut white just finishes the piece.
