TWO PAPER DIVAS DESIGN TEAM CARD - Floral in a Milk Jar
First Layer: Base card (SU Vanilla) I ran through my Big shot with a vertical floral vine embossing folder. I distressed it with SU Pixie Pink ink on just the edges.
Second Layer: I cut piece of vanilla card stock 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 and ran it through my Big shot with the Mama Elephant Creative Cuts Femme Frames. I have kept my set together and hence I cut the two pieces each time I use this die. I save which ever piece I do not use (sometimes I do use both pieces on a card). In the case of this card, I used the larger outer piece. I lightly distressed the edge with the SU Pixie Pink ink on the edges. Then I used a light run of Tombow Aqua Mono Liquid Glue and adhered this piece to the embossed piece.
Third Layer: I cut another piece of vanilla card stock to accommodate the larger die from Avery Elle (Pinked Die) and then die cut it with my Big shot. This time I put down pieces of Eclipse Tape on the edge of the pinked card stock. I wanted a definite straight edge along the inside edge of the pinked edge which would be left vanilla. Then using my round distressing tool, I first picked up the SU Blushing Bride ink; then the SU Pretty in Pink and finished with a light coat of Pixie Pink in the center of this pinked edge card stock. Once again I used SU Pixie Pink on the distress tool and carefully edged the color on just the pinked edge. Now I stepped out of being a TWO PAPER DIVA DESIGN TEAM MEMBER and used a Hero Arts Stamp K5344 La Letter script stamp and stamped in SU Early Espresso Ink. I think that it is in French but at any rate I cannot read it but it has been a go to favorite for about 5 years when I want this background. It measures 2-3/4" x 4" and I love this size. So now I send a message to Melissa and Gayla - Please brush up on your foreign language and design a stamp so I will be "legal" if I want to layer with a stamp like this!!! To add this layer to the building of this card, I used dimensionals after the final layer and the ribbon have been added.
Fourth and Final Layer: I have a full series of these lovely dies (?) and I used Distress Watercolor card stock this time because I wanted my Tombow Water Color Pens to be more true color. I Die cut this piece first and without removing the die, I did a light coat of SU Pretty in Pink ink around the inside of the die cut piece. Then I removed the die and love the white edge which is left. Then I stamped the TWO PAPER DIVAS stamp of the Floral in the Milk jar from the set called "Happy Mother's Day" and once my coloring was accomplished I stamped the Sentiment from that same set. For the water, I used my light blue Copic Marker (B000). This layer was applied to the third layer. I colored my piece of cream color seam binding with the SU Pretty In Pink Ink and then tied the ribbon around this third and fourth layer. One final step, I applied Glossy Accents to the flowers and the leaves.
So, now my afternoon Class will be making this card on Tuesday. Happy Creating to ALL!!!
