Feeling Noble and Majestic...
Well I'm sure you all know by now my love of the noble dies I was so happy that Sue designed a new shape for the noble range this ornate shape which comes in three different styles which are perfect for layering!
I stared with the ornate pierced die and using the largest die in the set I made a card black. By using the die i got the advantage of the beautiful shape, embossing and piercing all the way around my my card blank. I then added the filigree section and die cut this int the front of the card only.
To make the glittered lilac layer I die cut a piece of lilac foundation card wit the largest and the centre shaped die form the set. I also added a sheet of double sided adhesive to the piece before cutting. I layered the largest piece behind the filigree and added a sprinkling of Diamond Sprinkles to the adhesive hat shows through the filigree section.
I then die cut the centre filigree section from the Lavish accented noble die set using the matching outline die. I added this to the smaller piece of the lilac with the adhesive and again added diamond sprinkles to the visible adhesive. I hen cut the smallest die in this set and foam mounted all the pieces together.
To make the topper I cut 2 of the new maidenhair fern dies in the lilac and added dusty concord distress ink to colour the edges. I then cut one of the new majestic butterflies in lilac and 2 in coconut white then cut into one of the white butterflies as these are designed to be cut down to make a smaller butterfly. I then altered them up with the smallest on the top. Finally i layered these onto the fern die cut and placed the whole topper on the card. To decorate I added pearl PVA riots around the frame and on the points of the butterflies.
This is a die cut heavy card however the colours really compliment making it look less complicated than it is. I know that not everyone will use as many layers as I have here however there are ideas that I hope that you can take some ideas form this one!
