Petal Perfection

Hi All Jennifer here again,

Hope you've all had a wonderful Christmas with your friends and families.   I would just like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy New Year when it arrives.  Time to party lol  !!    Well enough chit chat, I could talk the hind legs off a donkey lol !! so my hubby tells me.  On to today's card, one I made for Imagination Craft's in November 2012 for the QVC show in January 2013.  For this card I used another very pretty decoupage stamp, the Clematis.

Make a base card from white card stock.   Take a square of blue shiny card, cut slightly smaller than the white and matt this  onto the white base card .   Cut a piece of blue gingham paper approx. two and a quarter by five and a quarter inches and fix  to the right-hand side of the base card.

Using the Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink Pad, stamp a row of leaf stems down the right edge of the gingham paper with the leaf stamp from the set.

Stamp the main image onto white card using the same blue ink pad.   stamp this a further four times.   Colour using Promarker Pens and distress inks.   Cut out and 3D onto the main image using silicone glue.

Using a die-cutting machine, some of the blue shiny card and the flourish die, cut out and emboss the flourish.   Glue this to the left-hand side of the base card, then glue the 3D image to the centre of the card.

Stamp out 'Happy Birthday' onto some white card using the blue distress ink pad.   Cut out and colour with distress inks.
Glue this to the centre bottom of the base card.   Lastly add five light blue gemstones to the top left of the card.

That's all for now folks,   keep well, warm and have a fabulous New Year.

Crafty Hugs,
