Good Morning Everyone,

8 x 8 Card Blank
White Card Stock
Sentimentally Yours Bracket Collection Everyday Stamps
Graceful Butterfly and Dragonfly Paper Pad
Graceful Blue Colour Cloud Blending Ink
Graceful Blue Ink Mister Spray
Graceful Blue Twinkles
Graceful Blue Mica Powder
Sue Wilson Dies- Peony

Creative Expressions Adhesive Pearl Strips

This is how I made it :-

8 x 8 Card Blank
White Card Stock cut to 7.75 sq
Graceful Blue Paper cut to 7.5 sq
I then attached these layers flat to the main card.

Next using the largest of the Noble Dies I cut this out using White Card Stock and attached to the card using pads to give dimension.

Using the next 2 smaller dies I cut these out - again using white card stock. I then used Blue Mister Spray on the plain piece, and once dried I attached both layers flat to the card.


I used the 2 largest Dies from the Greek Island Rhodes and cut these out in plain white card stock.
I stamped the Sentiment using Graceful Blue Colour Cloud Blending Ink.

Then I mixed a paste using Graceful Blue Mica Powder together with Graceful Blue Mister Spray, and coloured the edges of the Sentiment, and attached to the centre using pads

Finishing Touches

Using a sheet of white card stock I sprayed this with Graceful Blue Mister Spray and then cut several flowers out, shaped, and attached to the card. I then added Twinkles to the centres, before adding the leaves.

Finally I used Self Adhesive Pearl Strips around the edges of the rectangles.
