International Blog Highlights - Gratitude inspired by Thailand

Image may contain: text

Welcome back 😊
I am today taking part in the International Highlights.
This is a photo gallery style hop that is hosted by Kylie Bertucci.
Demonstrators from all over the world are being highlighted on this blog!
You can vote for the projects that you like just by hovering over the top right corner of the photograph then clicking the heart that appears.

Yesterday I posted a LIVE video on my FB business page as a little tutorial for the
 'Whole Lot Of Lovely Gift' set
This was first created by me in the Black and gold colours. I recreated them in White and Pool Party during the video and I thought I would share them here for the International Highlights - Gratitude inspired by Thailand.

In nearly every picture I have seen about Thailand there are always a lot of flowers. Everything is crisp and fresh and so bright. (No I have never actually been)
So I thought my gift set would be appropriate for this Gratitude isnpired by Thailand theme 😊

Here are my projects.
I do love this DSP!

Whole Lot Of Lovely

What do you think?
Can you see why I fell in love with this DSP?  It is just so striking!
And this is only one of the gorgeous sheets in the pack!

From the Fabulous Foil Designer acetate sheets I chose the Dragon Scale sheet for both of my projects. These sheets come in 12" x 12" and I have to say are just gorgeous!

For my Card.

  • My card base and front were created using Whisper White card stock. The base is an A4 piece folded in half then cut at 10.5 cm.
  • The Silver Foil sheet has been cut 4mm smaller on both top and bottom edges. 
  • The black card front has been cut another 4mm smaller along the top and bottom edges then glued to the gold foil sheet.
  • I die cut the acetate using the layering squares framelits the largest straight edge square was used. 
  • I thought that the silver foil sheets would add a touch more richness to my design so, I added the scalloped frame around the outside of the fab foil acetate window as well. This was created using the largest scalloped edge square and the second largest straight edge square.
  • I fussy cut the flowers from the floral White and Pool Party sheet and mounted them on mini dimensionals. The touch of Pool Party and Crushed Curry really aids in making this card pop.
  • My sentiments are from the Graceful Garden stamp set, I just love the font used for them!
  • To bring the Pool Party Colour out even more I stamped the sentiments into Pool Party ink and then onto my card front.
  • For the inside of my card I used Thick Whipser white over Silver Foil. I added a small strip of DSP to the right edge. This helped to continue the colour and floral theme to the inside and gave a lovely clean area for writing..

Now I did do a FB LIVE video for this set. I uploaded it to Youtube and removed the first couple of minutes plus added some of my details etc. It is pretty long still...around 35 minutes (sorry)
I have no voice overs or other edits, mistakes and all are here to see lol.
