Vintage Floral Circles...

Happy Tuesday,

Ready for tomorrows launch of my stamp range on Hochanda I thought I would share this card that I made to showcase the new Vintage Floral Circle background stamp.  This stamp was delayed from the original launch and only reached me last week!










I stared by stamping the circle onto a piece of vintage gold foundation card using perfect medium in random pattern as shown.  I then added snow-cap brilliant sparkle embossing powder and heat set this which makes the design show in white with a sparkle which is better seen in real life!

Next I repeated this process onto a piece of velum and backed this with a circle of vintage gold, both cut with the Sue Wilson noble double pierced circles dies which fit the stamp perfectly!  Next I cut a series of the stitched flag dies in the papers form the new Kraft and Gold 6x6" paper stack from DCWV.

I made up the card as shown with a layer of the ribbed white foundation card ( available on the show with Kraft card and the return of the gloss black reversible card ( early waring on this as It sold out so quickly last time)  I finished with a chrysanthemum cut in velum with a small gold dazzler as the centre and foliage of the Olive Branch die, all by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions.

I will be demoing a version of this card on one of my shows on Thursday at either 9am, 12pm, 4pm or during Final Call at 7pm so tune in to see how this was made!

Enjoy...

  12. Morning John, I absolutely love the stamp but not sure I like it on the gold card, I think I will use a different colour background.

  13. A beautiful card which to my mind has a very masculine look. Ideal for the many who find it difficult to make a mans card.

    Hugs to all

  19. Like the way the background has been made and the use of vellum instead of card to accent it.

  32. Eh up John
    Perhaps it needs to be seen in person as the colour isn't showing well on my screen. Love the stamps and sentiment though.
    Best wishes

  35. Hi John. Lots of really good ideas on this card but to me, the overall effect is a bit confusing. Of course, it might look less confusing in real life.
