A daily papercrafting blog which features my handmade cards showcasing Creative Expression's products including my own line of cutting dies and embossing folders, Cosmic Shimmer, Ranger, Spellbinders and more which use various techniques and ideas to hopefully inspire the creativity in you.
Good Sunday morning all! I started with the background of this card first and embossed a piece of silver card using the Bed Of Roses embossing folder. Once embossed, I paper grouted it with Polar White Sparkle Texture paste and allowed it to dry. The texture paste fills in the lines on the pattern and adds a bit of shine and sparkle to the background. Next I cut four Canadian Borders out of coconut white card and put two of them together on each side, slightly overlapping the swirls and glued them to each side of the background edge. I added some white flat back pearls as accents. For the focal element, I cut the Montreal die out of white and backed it with another piece of white card, then cut the centre out to create a frame. I added mounting foam to the back and attached it the centre of the card. I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with the centre die in the Canadian tag set. I cut the entire tag to seat it on and glued it across the Montreal. I glossed two pieces of Trailing Ivy by coating it with Cosmic Lacquer and allowed them to dry. I attached them in opposite directions from the sentiment and glued a few silver Peony flowers to it. I added a pretty pierced base layer, a thin silver mat and then just a final white mat to complete the card. The finished dimensions are 8" x 9" in size.
