Petite and Corner Scribbled Sentiments in Decadent Wine

Good Morning Everyone

As promised, here is another one of my samples from this weeks' shows on Hochanda,..

On this card, I have used both the new Petite Scribbled Sentiments and the Corner Scribbled Sentiments.. I love the whole look of this card, particularly the co-ordination of colours and stamps (of course) ha ha

This is what I used:

Milk Foundations Cardstock
Wine Coloured Cardstock
Sentimentally Yours Scribbled Corner Everyday Stamps
Sentimentally Yours Petite Scribbled Occasions Stamps
Sentimentally Yours Tiny Little Ink Splats Background Stamp
Aged Mahogany Distress Ink Pad
Glacier Ice Glitter Jewels
Dies by Sue Wilson: Curled Vines, Camellia Flowers (complete petals), Lisbon, Porto, Noble Double Pierced Rectangles
Phill Martin for Cosmic Shimmer Decadent Wine Pearl PVA Glue
Pearls form the Stick Pink Elements Collection
Creative Expressions Fine Finials A4 Embossing Folder

This is what I did:

I cut all the layers for this card first, which were: milk card 23cm x 18cm, wine card 22.5cm x 17.5cm, milk card 22cm x 17cm, 21.6cm x 16.6cm.
I then cut the dies, cutting the base Lisbon die in wine card, then the base and largest die in milk card, the smallest label shape from Porto in milk card, 6 of the cammelia flowers and 2 curled vines in milk card.
The fabulous Noble Double Pierced Rectangle dies were used to create the frame (and I can honestly say that these and the Double Pierced Square dies are my new best friends - thanks Sue!)

The wine card was stuck to the base layer with CS Glue, the next layer was embossed using the gorgeous fine finials embossing folder (I also did the centre of the Lisbon die at the same time) and this was also stuck on with CS Glue.

I then stamped the bottom right and top left corners of the frame with the Scribbled Corner stamps, using aged mahogany distress ink. I chose 'Especially For You' as I thought it worked really well with the Petite Scribbled Sentiment 'Because You're Special', which is what I stamped in the centre panel. I also distressed the edges of this panel with the aged mahogany distress ink.
I then stuck the frame onto the card using foam tape (and CS Glue of course)
I stuck the lacey part of the Lisbon dies to the wine base with CS Glue, then the embossed centre on foam tape and finally, the stamped focal point with foam tape too..

I stamped all my flowers and the curled vines with the (now indepsensable) Tiny Little Ink Splats background stamps and aged mahogany distress ink pad, the flowers were shaped differently to the last card, simply by using the point of my tweezers to hold the centre of each petal and pushing the sides back. You will notice that, again, I have left them as individual flowers and not layered them up,.. this is why I love the Camellia flowers,.. so much you can do with them!
Naturally, they were all given the Glacier Ice treatment on the tips of each petal, as were the curled vines. The pearls were stuck in with CS Glue too.
I stuck them all on the card as shows in the photo with CS Glue (curled vines last)

I finished off by adding two bobs (very technical term) of the Decadent Wine Pearl PVA Glue to the top and bottom of the centre topper, then left it all to dry :-)

The finished card

And there we have it,.. another relatively quick card for me, but it's a very elegant finish.
I may even replicate this card again as I do like the finished result :-)

As always, everything I have used is available on my website at www.honeypotcrafts.co.uk, but I do know we have sold out of the Scribbled Corners,.. will be ordering more today so check the website to see if I have added more stock..

Until tomorrow,.... Happy Crafting!
