HAPPY NEW YEAR! I had a great holiday and hope you did too.
I am ready to get back to working on my cards. Today I created a card for a friend who loves pink.
When I create my flowers, my very favorite work surface is the Tim Holtz Glass Media Mat. No matter what materials/products I use, it is very easy to clean up.
I used one of the Tonic Craft Perfect 6x6 card blanks for the card base. A piece of the Rose Glacier Luxury Embossed Card was used for the background. A score line was created around the edges, using the Tonic Super Trimmer. This Trimmer comes with both a scoreing blade and a cutting blade. It was attached to the card front using the Tonic Adhesive Runner.
I have the Tonic Eastern Oyster Layering die set and used two dies from this set to die cut frames for the sentiment. On the smaller frame, I used the Nuvo Delicate Rose Alcohol Marker around the edges to help it stand out. An old sentiment from Susan's products called "Sunshine & Love" was stamped usinging Nuvo Clear Mark Embossing Ink then Nuvo Fine Jet Black Embossing Powder sprinkled on and heat set. The two layers were attached to the front of the card using Craft Perfect Dimensional Foam Pads.
The Garden Club Pom Pom Dahlia dies were used to die cut petals out of the Classic Card Blossom Pink card stock. They were shaped and glued together using the Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive. The Nuvo Dried Oregano Hybrid Ink was sponged on the leaves.
The Garden Club Beauty Berry Bush die set was used to die cut 6 branches using white card stock. The Nuvo Safari Green Ink was sponged on the branches using the Nuvo Blending Sponges. For the little flowers in this die set, Tonic Classic Card Blossom Pink Card Stock was used. Once shaped, a dot of the Nuvo Deluxe Glue was put in the center of each one and pink Pollen was added. These flowers were glued to the Beauty Berry Bush branches prior to adding the pollen in the center of each flower.
The Beauty Berry Bush die cuts were added around the Sentiment then the Pom Pom Dahlias added.
For a little extra elegance, Nuvo Crystal Gems were added around the flowers and sentiment.
