Good Sunday morning all! Today's double day features the Happily Ever After die set.
This first card was started by embossing a piece of milk card with the Jacobean Floral embossing folder.
I cut a double strip of cream pearls
down the centre and ran them along the top and bottom edges of the embossed piece. Next I cut the Happily Ever After decorative die
three times, twice with a dusty pink (from my stash) and once from Chestnut brown card.
I backed all three with the opposite colours and cut the centres out to create three frames. I staggered the frames and ran a piece of satin ribbon that had similar colours on it through the frames to create a buckle card. I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with a small oval then mounted it on top of a decorative die from the Geneva die set.
I added this piece to the centre of the cards and then tied a double bow with the same ribbon and added it to the left side of the card. I completed the card with a pierced milk mat, then added dusty pink and brown thin mats and a final milk mat. The finished dimensions are 6" x 9" in size. Scroll down for card number two.
For card number two, I created a background using a Classic Elegance Paper pad
selection in blue. I cut two strips out of the same paper and mounted them above and below the focal element raised for dimension. I added a strip of pearls
to both sides of each strip as accents. I cut the same decorative die as above three times out of coconut white card, then mounted white backing pieces on each of them. I cut one in half directly down the centre and mounted it flush with each edge. I added a whole one to the centre in a diamond orientation, then cut the last one so that it just nipped away a smaller portion on each side, leaving the centre of the die as waste (at least on this card) and added it on top of the side cut dies. I cut a circle out of the decorative paper and added it to the centre of the card and then cut and stacked several of the sentiment die and glued them in place atop of the decorative circle in the centre of the card. I cut several of the Exquisite poppy die
in white and scrunched them and made three flowers. I mounted them around the focal element with Olive branches
as accents. The card was completed with a white on white mat. The finished dimensions are 7" x 7 1/2" in size.
