Can you describe the project? How did you make it?

  1. I have created my card base and then added a 5 ⅝” of silver cardstock to
    the front.
  2. I have sponged pink ink on one side of the embossing folder before
    embossing. I trimmed this to 5 ½” x 5 ½” and then added this to the card
  3. I die cut the largest square postage edge die from the Amazing Paper
    Grace Square Postage Edge dies out of white cardstock and largest stitched
    edge die out of silver cardstock and layered them on the card front.
  4. I have sponged the base dies from the Amazing Paper Grace Filigree Eight
    Point Star Dies using Distress Oxide inks Kitsch Flamingo and Picked
  5. I have added the outline dies to the background dies and then added the
    decorative dies to create the star pattern. I have then added the ‘quilts’ to the
    front of the card.
  6. I stamped the sentiment from the Hugs Sentiment Stamp set in Altenew
    Obsidian Pigment ink on white cardstock and then adhered it to the centre of
    the card.
  7. I die cut two small stars from the Amazing Paper grace Eight Point Star
    dies out of vellum and coloured this with Picked Raspberry ink and layered
    this onto a white background. I added the white outline die and then added
    these above and below the sentiment.
  8. I handcrafted the flowers using several Amazing Paper Grace floral dies
    and adhered them to the card front as shown.
  9. I die cut the butterfly out of vellum, coloured them with Picked Raspberry
    ink and Nuvo Mousse – Indian ink and adhered it to the right side of the
    sentiment as shown.
  10. I finished by adding pearls around the edge of the ‘quilt’ and on the centre
    stars and some satin ribbon bows amongst the flowers.
