Good Sunday morning all! Today's card is quite simply a case of the dies doing all the work for you! I started by cutting eight of the Hobart Adornment out of coconut white card. I selected Iris card to add to the combo as it pops nicely against the white. I cut two squares of Iris card, one at 4 1/4" square and the other at 6 1/4" square. On the smaller piece, I glued the Hobart Adornments with the straight edge to the edge of the card, centring them on each side. I matted this piece with white card then added mounting foam and placed it in a diamond orientation in the centre of the larger square. I glued the remaining adornments so the straight edge lined up with the straight edge of the smaller piece and the tips pointed towards the corners. I stamped my sentiment from the Elegant Sentiment clear stamp set by Creative Expressions. I cut the inner die from the Melbourne in Iris card, matted it in white then cut the centre out to create a frame for my sentiment. I added pearls and mounted it in the centre of the card. I completed the card with a pierced white mat, a thin Iris card mat and a final white layer. The finished dimensions are 7 3/4" x 7 3/4" in size.
