What again...

Happy Monday,

Ive titled this post what again because i seem to have used the Gerbera Lattice die again on this card, I'm starting to think i have a special liking for this one lol

This is a more complex version of the card I shared yesterday.

I stared by cutting the lattice into a piece of white parchment  I then foam mounted this ( by using foam sheets under the edges and small pieces in the centre of each flower so that the pattern doesn't sag) over a piece of the ombre vellum I must get some more of this.

I mounted the background on a set of frames cut with the plain squares form Press cut adding layers of white and silver ( to match the Crafts Too diamonds in the centre of the panel flowers)

On another piece of the ombre vellum i stamped the Gerbera Daisy clear stamp iusing perfect medium and heat set it with izink glitter clear embossing powder.  I cut the flowers out using the matching die ( which cuts all six flowers in one pass)  I stamped and cut this twice which was easy to do on the A5 vellum as the stamp and die are A6 sized.  I shaped the flowers using a ball tool and made ups each flower using 2 of the same size for each.

I added a bow of ombre ribbon from my stash and sprayed the flowers accross the centre.
