Beaded Petticoat Card

Hi guys!  An all occasion card for today, not even a sentiment on it!  I started with a floral background paper and applied a piece of sticky adhesive to it.  Simply peel off the backing paper and dip it into the clear micro beads to coat it and give a great texture to your background.  You can see it more clearly in the second picture below.  I stamped the Bella Rose from Heartfelt Creations, coloured it with pencils and cut it out with the matching die shape.  I cut out two of the Bella Rose swirls and inked and stamped it through the dies.  I dyed some American seam binding with Antique Linen distress ink, tied it into a bow and scrunched it for a shabby chic look.  I added two crystal stick pins and a button with twine to complete my focal element.  For the bottom of the card, I cut three borders using the heart edgeability insert and triple scallop edge.  I matted milk coloured card behind the heart inserts for a contrast.  I like the petticoat look that the multiple borders give.  A sentiment could be added quite easily to the upper corner or as a tag hanging from the bow if desired.  Hope you like it!  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue Pink for the girls looks impressive and difficult to achieve but your description breaks down all the components very well and it's sounds easy to do. Will have to give hs a try.

I like the petticoat effect you got with the dies. And...micro beads are one of those things I stuffed in the back of the craft drawers, but you've reminded me lately to get them out and use them. Thanks

Morning Sue.. Lovely card. Sally

Karen said...

Hi Sue, not really my taste but I love the swirls and the use of micro beads which can be transferred to other ideas. You do many different cards I guess you can't like everything all the time

Anonymous said...

Hello Sue.
The Micro Beads really lift this paper, will give this a go but will use a ribbon flower or one made from vellum. Thanks once again Sue, have a good day.
best wishes. Bren

Hi Sue
What a pretty card. I really like the triple frill at the bottom and also the fact that you've used coloured pencils for the rose. Again, love the micro beads - must get these next time they're available on C&C.

Craftypurpledragon said...

Hi Sue,
You seem to be changing from the queen of the bow to the queen of the micro bead, actually come to think of it you reign supreme in both!
Love and light.

I love the layout and design details of this card Sue - especially the swirly bits and the microbeads. I think the rose has been beautifully coloured in and am jealous of the way you have shaded it. I must keep practising. For me though I would prefer a slightly paler pink but it is still a very beautiful card.
