Card for 'Niece' showcasing The New 'From The Heart' Collection Dies

Good Morning Everyone,

Apologies for our absence over the last week, as you all know Phill has been extremely busy
designing New Products for all of us, along with preparing for the Trade Show starting today at The N.E.C. Birmingham.

Once again I thank each and everyone of you for your lovely comments, emails and messages on my previous posting.

Today's card is one I enjoyed creating and hope that you will to.

Listed below are the products I used to create it all of which can be found on Phill's Website:-


Products used:-

8 x 8 Cream Card Blank
Cream Card Stock
Burgundy Card Stock
Phill Martin Dies - From The Heart Collection - Female Relatives
Sue Wilson Dies - California Collection - Decorative Frame Set B
Sue Wilson California Corner,Border & Tags
Sue Wilson Laurel Leaves
Sue Wilson Perfect Peony
Spellbinder Flutters
Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels
Cosmic Shimmer Acrylic Glue
Creative Expressions Pearl Strips

Card Front

I started by cutting the layers for the card front
1st layer 7.25 square cut out in burgundy
2nd layer 7 x 7 square cut out in cream

I then layered together (flat) using Cosmic Shimmer Glue.

Next using Cream Card stock and the Corner Dies, I cut four of these out and attached flat to the card front.

Using the 3 largest of the Frame Dies I cut these out in alternate colours of Cream & Burgundy, and attached all three to the card using pads to give dimension.

Using the New  From The Heart Collection Dies I chose 'Niece' from the the Female Relatives and cut this out using burgundy card stock, then attached flat to the card.

Using the Peony Dies I cut several flowers out and shaped these before attaching t the card, I then cut out the Laurel Leaves and added to card.

Finishing Touches

I cut the butterfly out in burgundy and added Diamond Sprinkles to the wings. Then added diamond sprinkles to the flowers and leaves. Then I added pearls to the centre of the flowers.

Finally I edged the smallest cream die with Diamond Snow.

This is now ready to be attached to the 8 x 8 card blank.

                                                   Happy crafting
