Today I thought I would share a card made by mixing one of the media plate backgrounds with a die cut frame mixing my two loves of stamping and die cutting!
This creates quite a simple yet hopefully elegant looking card that is all made form white card a real bonus!
I stared by making the background using the large size media plate I covered the plate with verbena and wax colours of the Izink dye ink pads. Next I took some of the small leaves from the Circle Leaves clear stamp set and created a resist in the plate. To do this simply inks the stamps with perfect medium and stamp thrips not the plate. The resultant ink is then used to stamp the leaves onto the paper. Once this has been done in servile locations I then inked the stamps with more of the verbena and stamped these onto the plate. To finish I closed the stamp press pressing the media plate onto the card making the textured background I used for this card.
For the central element i used another piece of background made in similar colours and cut the 2 outline dies from the floral frame form Find it media. I repeated this with a piece of white card to make drop shadow around the die cut ( by cutting the white frame into two pieces and adhering it into the back of the coloured one.
I cut the pattern in white and added this into the correct place on the frame adding white stick on pearls for detail and highlight.
I made and added a silk ribbon messy bow and foliage again cut from the scrap piece of background. I arranged it as shown adding mats and layers of white and green to highlight the design.
