Baroque Best Wishes - Black & Cream

Good Morning Everyone,

Once again thank you all for taking the time to comment on my cards, Its lovely to know what you all think.

Today I decided to use stamps from one of my Favourite Collections - The Baroque Collection.

I hope you like it.

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

8 x 8 Cream Card Stock
Sentimentally Yours Baroque Background A6 Stamp
Sentimentally Yours Baroque Sentiment Collection A5 Stamp Set
Creative Expressions Snakeskin Embossing Folder
Black PVA Glue
Sue Wilson Die New York Collection - Herald Square 
Seam Binding
Couture Creations Dragonfly Die

Matting & Layering

1st layer Black Card cut to 7.75 sq.
2nd Layer Cream Card cut to 7.5 sq.
3rd Layer Black Card cut to 6.75 sq.
4th Layer Cream Card cut to 6.5 sq.

First I attached the 7.75 Black Card to the Base Card - flat using Cosmic Shimmer Glue
I than embossed the Cream 7.5 card and attached this (again flat)


To create the background I used the cream 6.5 card and The Baroque Background Stamp. I stamped this using Black Soot Distress Ink. Once this was dry I attached it to the 6,75 black card and then added both to the main card using pads to give dimension.


Using a piece of cream card and Sue Wilson Herald Square Die I cut the die out and then backed it onto a  piece of black card.

I then did the PVA Pearls around the edge of this as they take a while to dry.

Next I cut a piece of cream card to 2.5 sq and stamped the Sentiment attaching this the centre with pads.
This was then added to the centre of the main card.

Once I was sure the PVA Pearls were dry I attached the sentiment to the centre of the card.

Finishing Touches

I made a triple bow and swags using Black Seam Binding and added a Dazzler to the centre.
Finally adding two Dragonflies.

                                                         Happy Crafting

  15. Hi Barb/Phill (whom I hope is still talking to me, 'cos I asked a stupid question at Summer Crafting. - anyway, I still love him!) I just wanted to thank whoever has given the matting and layering sizes, which I find soooooo.. useful - why doesn't everyone do it?
