Graceful Pink - For the best Parents

Good Morning Everyone,

Today's card is a quick and easy one

Products used ( which are also links to Phills website) :-)

8 x 8  Card Blank
Graceful Butterflies & Dragonflies Paper Pad
Sentimentally Yours Elegant Family Collection Stamp Set 
Graceful Pink P.V.A.
Graceful Pink Twinkles
Sue Wilson Dies Austrian Collection - Vienna
Spell Binders Blooms Four
Spellbinder Dragonfly Die

Using the Graceful Pink Dragonfly paper I attached this to the card blank and cut the aperture out using the largest Vienna Die.


For the centre feature I used the Vienna Dies, backing it with pink paper from the pad.

I then stamped the sentiment using Black Soot Distress Ink.

Keeping the card closed I lined up the sentiment and attached to the card using pads to give dimension.

Finishing Touches

Using Blooms Four Die  I cut out several flowers from scraps of white card and pink from the paper pad, shaped and glued these , then attached to card and added a small dazzler to each flower.

I then cut the dragonfly out, again using scraps of paper and card.
Once attached to card I used Glamour Dust and P.V.A.
 I finished off the front of the card using Graceful Pink Twinkles around the aperture.

Finally I decorated the inside corners with pink paper and edges around the Sentiment with Graceful Pink Twinkles.

                                                                  Happy Crafting

  11. Hi Barb And Phill,
    Another Truly Magnificent Card In The Pink I Love Phill's Papers, I Love How You Made Your Card Using The Vienna Die From The Austrian Collection. I Really Love The Crisp And Clear Sentiment Where You've Stamped Using Distress Inks I've never Used Mine For This Technique, I Will Have To Try As It Looks So Clear.
    Thank You For Sharing!!!!
    I Know Phill Has A Pinterest Button On The Main Card But Would It Be Possible To Place Pinterest Buttons On All Relevant Photographs To That Particular Card As I Think This A Really Great Way Of Explaining When Looking Back On The Card.
    Hugs From Sam xxx
