WEEKLY WEDNESDAY CARD GIVE-AWAY
Good morning bloggers and crafty friends.... A rustic themed design today
I used an 8"sq ivory card base, top folding then selected the papers I wanted to use from Crafter's Companion Rustic Wedding Paper Pad, this one is the 6" x 6" paper pad
I chose 3 papers (the tag isn't by CC) and added 2 of the papers to black card
The top panel was cut to make a 4" x 6" piece then added to a slightly larger black, the same as the others
Once happy with how the papers were displayed I added a little glue to hold them in place
A length of hessian was wrapped around them and I was then able to adhere everything onto the base card
I used the Arianna Blooms stamp and die set by Heartfelt Creations to stamp the flowers onto kraft card. I used 'jet black' StazOn for the stamping
Once embossed I added a little glitter to the petals. I then added 'abandoned coral' distress oxide ink, to the tips and half way down each petal, the petals were shaped using a ball tool and tweezers (I have to use tweezers as it's too painful for me using only my fingers due to the rheumatoid disease)
A hot glue gun was used to ensure each layer would stay in place then the flower was adhered onto the card
I had some leaves already die cut and embossed (Creative Expressions) so all I needed to do was add a little orange to them and a little green to the single maple leaf
Leaves were dressed around the flower and I fussy cut the tag from Stamperia's 'Ceremony' 12" x 12" paper pad. I'm using this paper pad to make a mini album for one of my sister-in-law's 60th birthday. The papers are really stunning!
I used a blending tool to add a little 'black soot', distress oxide ink, to the edges
A little glue added to the back and placed onto the card. One of the large size cream pearls was also added to the top of the tag
I stamped the sentiment onto cream card, cut it at an angle and added it to black card
To complete I added a little white Gesso/Ranger to some of the edges on the petals
