Decadent Damask Teal - Just A Note

Good Morning Everyone,

Thank You all for your lovely comments on my previous blog.

As I enjoyed making the last card so much and the products are still out on my craft desk I decided to create a slightly different version but using the lovely Decadent Teal.

I Hope you like this one as much as I do:-

Products Used:- (which are also links to Phill's Website too) :-)

8 x 8 Cream Card Blank
Cream Card Stock
Sentimentally Yours Decadent Damask Occasions A5 Stamps
Decadent Teal Colour Cloud

Phill Martin Decadent Teal Twinkles

Matting & Layering

8 x 8 Card Blank

1st layer cream card cut to 7.75 x 7.75

2nd layer Cream Card cut to 7.5 x 7.5

3rd layer Decadent Damask Teal Paper cut to 7.25 x 7.25

4 pieces of cream card....... 2 cut to 2 x 7.75  and 2 cut to 1.5 x 7.75

Taking the 7.75 square cream card I used the NEW  Decadent Teal Colour Cloud to ink the edges. Then attached all 3 layers to the base card.

Next I took a piece of 2 x 7.75 and 1.5 x 7.75 cream card and using the Inner Border Die I cut both out, then attached the 2 together - repeat this with the remaining 2 pieces, then attach both to the card lining up with the inner cream layer and the outer teal layer.


Using Spellbinder Labels Twenty Eight I cut the largest three out.
I then sprayed the largest with Decadent Teal Mister Spray.

Then with the smallest of the three I stamped this using the New Decadent Teal Colour Cloud and the Decadent Damask Occasion Stamp.

I attached the largest one to the card flat using Cosmic Shimmer Glue, the second two I attached with pads to give dimension.

Finishing Touches

I added Twinkles to the edges of the Border Dies and also around the edge of the second largest Label Die.
The topper i decorated with Pearl PVA.

Finally I made a triple bow using Seam Binding and added a large Dazzler.

Happy Crafting......
