Yet another card from my stamps to die for show however this one didn't get demoed so I thought it deserved its day in the sun anyway! This was made using the Prefect Peony stamp to die for that matches the Montreal die from Sue's Canadian collection from Creative Expressions.
I stared by stamping the Perfect peony stamp using indigo mint colour cloud blending ink onto coconut white card. Next I added sheet of double sided adhesive and diamond sprinkles. Next I cut the out;in and the inside of the stamped image using the matching dies form the Montreal set. I then added a 5mm stick on pearl onto the centre of each peony in the design.
I then stamped the sentiment, form the live, laugh, love clear sentiments gets from Creative expressions, again using the ink on a scrap of foundation card. I foam mounted the stamped image above this and trimmed down any of the backing card that showed around the edge (it doesn't matter how careful I am I always need to trim a bit!
Finally I added it to the front of the card with a bow and a couple of stick pins I made using the Stick Pin elements kit.
