Graceful Pink and White - Featuring The Bracket Birthday Verse Stamps

Good Morning Everyone,

I hope you have all dried out from yesterday, what a horrible wet day it was here in Nottingham.
Today is very cloudy but will hopefully stay dry.

Well on with today's card, another 8 x 8 (my favourite size) but looks very nice done in smaller sizes too.

Products used:- which are all available on Phill's Website  -  www.honeypotcrafts.co.uk

8 x 8 White Card Blank
White Card Stock
Graceful Butterfly and Dragonfly Paper Pad
Sentimentally Yours Bracket Collection Birthday Stamps
Sue Wilson Die - Greek Island - Corner, Border And Tag
Sue Wilson Die - Striplet - Bevelled Glass
Creative Expression Self Adhesive Pearl Strips
Spellbinder Flutters
Silver Embossing Powder
Glamour Dust

This is how I made it:-

8 x 8  Card Blank

1st layer Graceful Pink paper cut to 7.75 sq and attached flat to card.

2nd layer plain white card cut to 7.5sq and attach flat.

3rd layer plain white card cut to 6,75sq. I then lined up the Striplet Die and cut out then backed it with Graceful Pink Paper before replacing back into the aperture.

Sentiment and Corners 

Using one of the Bracket Birthday Verse Stamps and Silver Embossing Powder, I heat embossed before attaching to the card using pads to give dimension.

Next with an off cut of pink paper I cut out the corners using the Corner die from the Greek Collection. Then attached to the card.

Finishing Touches

I added self adhesive pearl strips around the edge of the striplet and also down the right side linking up to the corners.

Finally I cut the butterfly and used glamour dust on the wings, and attached to the card.

                                     Happy Crafting
