Using one of the newest dies - another, batch of fantastic calligraphed die cut words by signature designer Suzanne Cannon available on Elizabeth Craft Designs A Way With Words "Beautiful" and one from a previous release YOU from "Thank You" both also available on Quietfire Design HERE and HERE
Scored, and folded my white card (5"w x 7"h).
Cut a bunch of the "Beautiful" word, sprayed the back with removable adhesive (Krylon "Easy Tack") and used it as a mask, sponging and direct to paper with Various Distress pads - "Spun Sugar" all over; sponging more heavily with the sugar around the word. Moving the mask down and sponging with "Mustard Seed" blending slightly into the pink above.
Used my hard rubber mallet to selectively emboss around the card front using Elizabeth Craft Design folder "Bouquet". Sponged around the edges with "Picked Raspberry".Shadow detailed the words with an HB pencil.
Die cut another "Beautiful" and "You" from purple cardstock. Applied Glossy Accents and set aside to dry. Adhered to front.
Adhered some "Curvy Leaves" (Elizabeth Craft Designs), die cut from Brusho colored watercolor paper sprinkled with Gold powder.
Created the flower from punched circles and Mulberry paper. Edged the circles with a "Vintage Photo" pad. Tooled the circles and then adhered to create the flower. Added PVA glue and the beads in the center. Adhered to front.
Used a corner rounder punch for the card edges.
