Good Sunday morning all! I found this one in one of my older files, but I liked the relative simplicity of it so I thought I would share it today. I started by covering a piece of acetate with a sticky adhesive sheet. I turned the acetate over and sponged on Flake and Glitter glue and waited for it to turn clear. Once it was ready, I coated it with Persian Dawn Gilding Flakes and used a rubit scrubit to refine them and remove the excess. Next I turned the piece over and removed the backing paper from the adhesive sheet and coated it with clear microbeads. It gave an interesting look as you can see the gilding through the acetate and the micro beads. I matted it with a piece of black card. Next I cut two of the Geneva outer die, one in silver and one in black. I used the black die cut as a shadow behind the silver one. I added mounting foam to the back and attached it to the background, adding glue for extra hold. I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with the Pierced Flags and tucked the end under the oval frame. I used the Classic Rose die set to make two 3D flowers out of silver card. I seated them at the end of the sentiment with Lace Edged Leaves, tulle and black jute as accents. I completed the card with white and black mats and layers. The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x 7 1/2" in size.
