Have A Super Day x

 Evening everyone x I hope you have all managed to keep safe in this stormy weather that we have had here in the UK x
My card today mainly consists of Spellbinder dies and lot's of layering. I have used Micro Beads on my patterned paper (a Sue Wilson technique) which adds some gorgeous texture to my card.

I have threaded some satin ribbon through the diamonds on the Fanciful Lattice

 I have made the flower from lace and organza ribbon and added a pearl in the centre
(I will be adding a tutorial for the flower later in the week)
Products Used:
  • 8"x8" Card base, brown and cream card stock.
  • Patterned paper - I have used Beach Bliss by Lily Of The Valley
  • Spellbinder Dies Used: Fanciful Lattice, Timeless Rectangles, Persian Accents and M-Bossabilities - Twisted Hearts Design B
  • Justrite Stamps and Die - Vintage Labels Four and Birthday Wishes For You
  • Cream vintage lace, cream organza ribbon
  • Creative Expressions - American Seam Binding, Micro Beads
  • Cosmic Shimmer Gilding Wax - Patina
  • Flat cream  pearls
  • Versafine Ink -Sepia
Cover your card base in brown card. Cut your patterned paper 7" square and cover with a piece of double sided adhesive sheet. Peel the top layer off and take your Micro Beads and cover it making sure that all areas are covered. Matt this onto a piece of cream card gilding both with gilding wax along each edge before adhering together. Adhere this to your card.
Die cut - The largest and smallest Fanciful Lattice onto cream card. A large Timeless Rectangle in brown card and the label from the Justrite Vintage Labels Four in brown card. Put the label through your die cutting machine using the embossing folder - Twisted Hearts, making sure you emboss with the Design B side.  Cut a matt in brown card to fit the large Fanciful Lattice. Add some gilding wax to all of these elements.  Weave the American Seam Binding through the large Fanciful Lattice.
Matt and layer these all on top of each other using 3D foam pads as in picture and adhere to the top halve of the card. Stamp the sentiment and die cut out with the small label from the Justrite die set and adhere with 3D foam pads to the centre.
Die cut out the border from the Persian Accents in brown card and add a little gilding wax.
Adhere a length of lace along the bottom of the card and adhere the border over the top.
Make a bow with the seam binding and adhere this to just above the top right hand side of the border.
Make the lace flower:
Either punch or cut a small circle from card about 3/4" diameter. Take a length of lace about 10" in length and using a hot glue gun adhere it around the circle just off from the edge, rushing or pleating as you go to form a circle. Do the same with the organza ribbon, this time started further in to the centre and again with the lace adhering from the centre. Adhere a pearl or button in the centre.
You can make these in all sizes, which is great if you have lots of oddments of lace to use.  I am in the process of doing a tutorial on my method which should be on my blog by the end of the week.
Add your lace flower to the centre of the bow. To finish off the card I have added some pearls to the border and around the Fanciful Lattice rectangles..

Don't forget that I have my Blog Candy Giveaway which you can find in my side bar x
