Just For You - Featuring Decadent Damask Border Stamps and Graceful Mint Texture Paste

Good Morning Everyone

Today's Card is an 8 x 8

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

8 x 8 White Card Blank

Decadent Damask Sentiment Border Stamps
Sparkle Texture Paste Graceful Mint
Creative Expressions Triple Scallop Mask
Sue Wilson Daisy Die Complete Petals

Normally I would start a card and work from the base upwards, but today's card I started with the centre feature which is the Texture Paste as this takes a while to dry ( I like to leave mine overnight).

So starting with a 6 x 6 blank piece of white card I lined up the mask and taped it down, then spread the Texture Paste even;y over the mask, once this is done remove the tape and carefully peel off the mask taking care not to disturb the texture paste. (put this somewhere safe to dry)
While waiting for this to dry I cut a piece of black card to 7.75 x 7.75 and attached it to the 8 x 8 card blank.

Next I cut a piece of white card to 7.5 x 7.5 then using the Decadent Damask Sentiment Border Stamp and Black Soot Distress Ink I stamped the Sentiment around the edges and attached this flat to the car

I then cut a piece of black card to 5.5 x 5.5 and attached this to the card using pads to give dimension.

Once I was happy that the Texture Paste was completely dry, I trimmed it down to 5,25 x 5,25 and attached to the centre of the card.

Using off cuts of card I cut and shaped the flowers and curled vines and attached them to the card.
On each of the white petals I added Mint Twinkles to the edges and finished off with a Dazzler to the centres.
