Graceful Lilac & Cream - On Your Wedding Day

Good Morning Everyone,

Thank you all so much for your lovely comments on my previous blog.

I hope you all enjoyed watching Phill's demo's on Hochanda, he had an amazing day with a 'Sell Out'
in the first 2 hours. Not really surprised though as I'm sure you will agree  all his stamps are amazing!

On with today's card, one which I really enjoyed creating :-

Products used:-  which can all be found on Phill's website ...... www.honeypotcrafts.co.uk

8 x 8 Cream Card Blank
Cream Card Stock
Graceful Butterflies and Dragonflies paper pad
Graceful Lilac P.V.A.
Graceful Lilac Mister Spray
Bracket Icon A6 Stamps
Bracket Occasion A5 Stamps
More Bracket Sentiments A5 Stamps
Bracket Words of Inspiration Stamps
Sue Wilson Peony Die
Sue Wilson Petite Vinery Die
Sue Wilson Ornate Pierced Rectangles
Creative Expressions Dazzlers
Creative Expressions Pearls
Silver Embossing Powder

To create this card 

I started with a cream 8 x 8 Card Blank and cut the first layer to 7.75 sq in cream card stock , then sprayed it with Graceful Lilac Mister Spray and attached to the main card using Cosmic Glue

Next I cut a 7.5 sq in cream, then using the More Bracket Sentiments I chose the ''On Your Wedding Day''stamp and embossed it with Silver Embossing Powder.

Then using a Stamp from 'Words of Inspiration' I stamped the sentiment at the bottom , again with Silver Embossing Powder. I then attached this to the main card.

Using the largest of the  Pierced Rectangle Dies I  cut this out using Cream Card, then I cut the next size out and backed it with Graceful Lilac from the Paper pad, and attached flat to the card.

Next I cut out the small die and embossed using the Bracket Icon Stamps and Bracket Words of Inspiration Stamps. I then attached this to the card using pads to give dimension.

Finishing Touches

Next I cut the flowers using Petite Vinery and Peony Open & Closed Petals. Once these were shaped I added small Lilac Dazzlers to the centres.

I then added pearls around the edges of both of the pierced rectangles, and finally added 3 P.V.A. pearls to each corner,

                                          Happy Crafting
