Have been continuing finishing off some cards that were ordered by a relative when I've had some spare time this week.
I decided to try something a little different for me and steer clear of images, stamps and flowers!
I even managed to not use any ribbon!
There are so many fabulous dies out there now and I have come to the conclusion that I want them all - I've seen some beautiful cards made using fancy dies and although I don't own many I thought now was as good a time as any to make something using some of the ones I had.
So here is my finished card.
I used centura Pearl card (which is my excuse for the poor qaulity photo) and first embossed with the trusty old Swiss Dots folder. Then I cut four corner flourishes and two of the larger fancy ovals after printing out the sentiment. I also cut a tag from one of the fancy tags sets and cut it in half.
The die cuts were all sponged lightly with VersaColor pigment ink in 'Bisque' colour. It's a pretty sandy/peachy coloured shade and am a wee bit upset that the pic doesn't actually show the true colour but am sure you get the idea!
I layered the 'cut in half' tag first then added the two fancy ovals so that the fancy edge of the tag was just visible. I stuck some pearls onto the ends of the tag and four very tiny ones onto the oval frame.
The two butterflies were given the same ink treatment, a little pearl each and a liberal dose of 'Diamond' stickles - well of course it was too good to be true - having resisted everything else I was not able to resist the 'bling'!
Am quite pleased with myself with this one, turned out better than I hoped and I've enjoyed making it - only trouble is, I now have to have more fancy dies - Definitely!
