I thought that I would share the first of the cards that I made for the recent Cardmaking & Papercraft Competition.
This is a double twist easel card using 2 cards (7″x7″) folded at the corner and joined together with 2 pieces of A4 baby pink pearlescent card, trimmed to 7″ wide, for the bottom and top. I then used 2 pieces of white card (7″x7″) to make the easel card fronts.
With the card structure in place I set about decorating the panels with swirl foiled papers from the Luxury Paper Pad, silver mirri card and vellum overlays. I stamped and heat embossed the Sparkle Background Stamp onto the top of the overlays using Versamark and Icicle WOW Powder then used Starlit Sky Sparkelicous Glitter, with some tacky glue, to add additional sparkle.
Next, I stamped and heat embossed the Beaded Dress Stamp and the bodice from the Beaded Dress Stamp onto baby pink pearlescent card using Versamark and Icicle WOW Powder. I then did the same with the Filigree Flowers stamps (3 large, 4 medium and 3 small) and the Butterfly Birthday Verse without inking the butterflies. I stamped and heat embossed the larger scrolls from the Honey Doo Flower Veins Stamps 4 times using Versamark and Icicle WOW Powder. I then carefully cut out all of the embossed images.
To assemble the card I shaped, layered and glittered the flowers using tacky glue and Starlit Sky Sparkelicous Glitter then finished each one with a gem from my stash. I layered the sentiment onto silver mirri card using 3d foam pads to create a stopper for the 2 panels. To create the dress I used red line tape to pleat and attach a double layer of the fabric to create the skirt and then attached the bodice using silicone glue. I then attached the flowers, scrolls and dress using silicone glue.
