So now for my little tutorial on my Creative Expressions Design Team card:
Thinking of You
I started with a cream blank card measuring 7"x7" square. I then matted a piece of gorgeous Foundations cardstock called Amethyst onto my card blank with 3D foam pads.
I then took some cream card measuring 6 3/4" x 6 3/4". I took it through my Grand Calibur with a Couture Creations embossing folder called Paradise and adhered it to my card.
For the next stage I cut 2 pieces of Amethyst card. The first measuring 3 1/2" x 4 1/2" and the other measuring 3" x 4". I stamped them both with the Creative Expressions background stamp - Leafy Background using Perfect Medium. I then Heat embossed them using Cosmic Shimmer Gold Detail embossing powder. TIP: Don't forget to either use an anti static bag or cloth.
I then matted them both onto some cream card.
Stamp the sentiment ' Thinking of You' onto some cream card using Distress Ink - Seedless Preserves. Die cut it out with the Spellbinder tag from the Fancy Tag Two set.
Whilst still in the die I inked the sentiment with Milled Lavender.
Next I made 2 Bitty Blossom flowers in the Amethyst card and 1 large in cream card. I used tweezers to make my flower but you can use a twilling tool if you prefer.
I then began to assemble my card. I used some 3D foam pads to adhere the sentiment to give my card a little dimension. I have added some Creative Expressions pearls to the centre of the flowers and cut some Pearl swirls from the larger Pearl Swirl pack. I made a triple bow with some Creative Expressions iridescent Grape Fuchsia ribbon and adhered it to the top right hand of my card.
To finish I added some Stickles glitter - Diamond and Platinum.
These are the products that I used:
I hope you enjoyed reading my little tutorial and I hope the photos were useful!
I will be back tomorrow with another project/card.
