French Fancy

Hi all. A French Twist today. Here is a step by step for one of the samples I made for the launch of the Kinetic cards by Crafters Companion. I have also used Stamps from Leonie's 'All the Love' set and Graphic 45 Papers.

I cut the circle pop out base using Ivory Centura Pearl 'Hint of Gold'. On the white side, which would become the front,I used the wonderful script stamp from Leonie. I stamped it over the base using Tattered Rose, Victorian Velvet and Antique Linen Distress Inks.The I blended from the outside in using the same inks, keeping it darker on the edges.

I took a sheet of the script paper from the Graphic 45 'Gilded Lily' paper paper pad and cut it out using the inner panels from the dies set.

From another sheet from the same pad I cut my main image using the circle die, this was for the centre. I also fussy cut a sentiment and some flower bouquets.

I layered the panels onto black card before adding it to the centre circle. I shaped the rose and lily bouquets and secured them with Collall 3D glue gel. The assembled the card as shown.

Thank you ever so much for taking the time to visit today. I do hope that you have enjoyed the step by step and the finished card. If you do enjoy reading my blog and the things I share then I would love your nomination for best blog in the International Craft Awards, the link is here:
