Create a Card - Decadence

Hi Everybody,

Todays card is using the Create A Card die called Decadence    from Crafters Companion  and the central aperture to this die is square.

It leaves a deeply embossed pattern on the card that can be further enhanced by inking through the die.

I have added foam pads to raise the panel up and I have added it to another embossed panel to make the card a little larger.

Once again I have added  a Hatpin into the flowers which are from Wild Orchid Crafts

There is a layer of ribbon and lace around the card and I have used a pearl buckle to hold the ribbon loops closed.

The petals have been sparkled with Glitter Magic 

The sentiment is from Crafters Companion and I have just cut and layered it into a plain shape.

The little pearls are Mother of Pearl from Want2Scrap

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  4. Hi Christina,
    Another lovely card. Hope you are having a great time.

  5. Good morning Christina,
    I have just got these dies when they came out as well and it really does make for a beautiful card. I like the colours that you have been matting the main die cut on to as it is just so soft letting just tiny bits of the colour through to be seen. I really need to find out how to do those ribbon loops that you have been doing as it is that wee bit different from the normal bow. All in all another lovely little masterpiece, thank you
