Sweet Violets

Todays card has been created using the new Flourishes Violets Clear Stamp Set. Ive stamped the large Violet stamp onto white card and Ive used my Karisma pencils for this one today. Ive then cut it out with one of the Labels Dies from Spellbinders, Ive also used a dark piece of Purple Pearlescent card for the second die cut to mount it on, but at a different angle.

The base card is again one of the 8"x 8" cards that has been made from an A3 piece of white card, and on top of this I have layered a dark piece of pearlescent mauve card on which I have layered a purple flower patterned paper. The second layer is another of the same set of papers, but this one is more pink and Ive used my Martha Stewart border punch and then stuck it across the bottom layer. The third layer is another piece of pearlescent card, but this one is a paler mauve, but Ive put it first through my Cuttlebug with one of my embossing folders, then used the same border punch down the edges. This time Ive layered it down the centre of the front, but I firstly put a piece of wide mauve organza ribbon sticking it to the back.

Ive then positioned the stamped mounted layer in the centre over the ribbon on foam, and stamped a greeting from the same set of stamps, then again used a ribbon tag die to cut it out, I mounted this onto another piece of the darker pearlescent card, stuck two brads through the holes and either end and attached below the stamped image with foam.

To finish of the card Ive made three silk flowers and attached a dragonfly charm to the bottom one on jump rings, and stuck three heart jewels to the left handside.

Hi Shirley,

Again a lovely card. I love how you describe your cards. The flowers are lovely. I must admit my stash lacks in the flower department because I think that they are so expensive. Im looking for a cheaper alternative.

Looking forward to your next card
