Good Sunday morning all! I have a really sweet girly card for you today. Sorry the pictures are a bit shadowed, but hopefully it is showing up on your screens as a wisteria and white colour combo. I started by cutting an aperture in a piece of wisteria card with the Bruges outer die. I embossed the card afterwards using the Jacobean Floral embossing folder while the die was still in place, It is a bit more work, but you get a pretty void around the aperture edge where the die remains. I added a piece of white card to the bottom into which I scored vertical lines. I added a strip of white pearls across the connection and tied a double bow out of some pretty matching silk ribbon from my stash (found on Ebay) with a pearl button centre. I added mounting foam to the back of the piece to raise it for dimension. Using the Silhouette Blooms Stamp to Die For, I inked it with Clear Perfect Medium and stamped it onto wisteria card. I heat embossed it with white embossing powder and cut it out with the Bruges die. I cut the inside of the stamp out to create a frame and then seated the decorative centre from the Bruges die matted with a wisteria card to show through it. I recessed the piece down into the aperture opening. I stamped my sentiment and cut t out with a small oval and inked it lightly with Chic Viola Colour Cloud and added it vertically to the centre of the card. I accented it with a few small poppies then completed the card with white and wisteria mats. The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x 8" in size.
