I missed this one...

Happy Wednesday,

I can't believe I missed posting this card as it was one of the first cards I made with the Sue Wilson November release of dies.  I think because I made it first I thought I had posted it!

Its in my favourite colours of periwinkle and coconut white, with a bit of pearl added of course!

I stared by cutting the trellis edger die by fitting it back in at 90 degrees to make a squareof trellis.  Sue Wilson has filmed a whole you tube video on this on the Creative Expressions youtube channel where she explains this technique.

I backed the trellis with periwinkle and used cosmic white dimensional PVA at every junction.

I then cut a larger mat using the edger from the same set and offset all of these panels onto a panel of card embossed with the Provencal lace A4 embossing folder and coloured with pearl lustre metallic gilding polish.

The central panel is cut using the Tahiti die set in periwinkle and adhered to a piece of double sided adhesive covered in diamond sprinkles.  I layered up the other dies in the set finishing with a l;are pearl centre and studded with PVA.

I made up a set of the starflowers cutting each size flower twice each in the 2 colours.  I mounted these along with the matching swirls that come with the set.

  31. John this is another perfect card, i love everything about it from the design to the colours.
    I can't help thinking the flowers look a little lost on this one which is a shame because they are beautiful too.
    Saying that i still love this card.
