Graceful Mint - Happy Anniversary

Good Morning Everyone

Not a very nice day here in Nottingham, but we have to make the most of it and 'Carry On Crafting'

Today's card is one I created using  Graceful Mint - I hope you like it.

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 Butterfly & Dragonfly Paper Pad
Graceful Mint Twinkles
Graceful Mint P.V.A.
Graceful Mint Mister Spray
Sentimentally Yours Bracket Everyday Sentiments A5 Stamps
Tartan Trellis Embossing Folder
Sue Wilson Dies - Petite Vinery
Sue Wilson New York Collection - Madison Square
Spellbinder Blooms
Spellbinder Bracket Borders 2
Spellbinder Flutters
Cosmic Shimmer Glue
Silver Embossing Powder

This is how I made it:-
8 x 8 Card Blank

1st layer -  Graceful Mint Paper cut to 7.75 sq

2nd layer - Cream Card Stock cut to 7.5 sq which I sprayed with Mint Mister Spray and then embossed using the Tartan Trellis Embossing Folder.

I then attached both layers flat to the card.

Using a sheet of Cream Card Stock and 2 Bracket Dies.
I lined these up each side and cut each one separate.
I then backed this with Mint Paper and attached to the card using pads to give dimension.






Sentiment 

Using the Madison Square Die I cut out in Cream Card stock and backed with Graceful Mint Paper. I then cut the centre square out and using the Everyday Sentiment I heat embossed using Silver Embossing Powder, then attached all these to the card using pads.


Flowers

Using Spellbinders Blooms 3 I cut out 2 sets using Cream Card offcuts and Graceful Mint Paper, then attached to the card, and also added the leaves.

Final Touches 

I used Cosmic Shimmer Glue on the petals and leaves, then sprinkled with Glacier Ice and added a dazzler to the centres.

Next I added Graceful Mint Twinkles to the edges of the large centre die cut and Graceful Mint P.V.A. to the outer edge of the sentiment square.

Finally I cut the butterfly out in Graceful Mint Paper and sprinkled the wings with Glacier Ice.
