Some Things Are Just Meant To Be ~

#KOCreationsCards #CI32 #ColourInkspiration #Petalpalette #Roses #Flowers #cardmaking #natureinspired #papercraft #StampinUp30
This project has a BRAND NEW ITEM (yay) called Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper (remember that name hehehe)
It has 2 designs, 4 of each design, that are full 12 x 12 " sheets. They are gorgeous flowers and patterns, all delicately cut out. One design is a stunning floral 12 x 12" (it can be cut if you are brave enough) the other design is made to be cut into card fronts like my card above. The card front cuttable has 4 different designs on it as well as some lovely little edge/banner patterns too. I have shown only 1 card front design with my card project above.

Items Used

  • Petal Palette Bundle (Only available as a bundle until 31st May)
  • Thick Whisper White card stock
  • Night Of Navy card stock
  • Gold Foil Sheet (10cm x 10cm) 
  • Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper (soon to be released)
  • Pink Pirouette Ink Pad (retiring)
  • Night Of Navy Ink Pad 

Basic Instructions

  • Place a piece of A4 thick Whisper White into the Stampin' Trimmer portrait style, Score at 10.5 cm = 4 1/8". Turn to landscape orientation and cut at 14.9 cm = 5 13/16" Fold on score line and burnish. This will give you 2 card bases with a top fold landscape orientation and another for stamping etc. Cut the other piece on the score line and use 1 to stamp your images on. You can keep the other piece for a spare card front.
  • Cut a piece of Night Of Navy at 13.5cm = 5 5/16"x 9.5cm = 3 11/16". 
  • Emboss the Night of Navy with the floral embossing folder from the Petal Pair two set embossing folder. This adds texture and interest to the central area.
  • Cut the oval card front from the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper. Adhere into position over the embossed Night Of Navy.
  • Stamp the rose image in Pink Pirouette. 
  • Colour the flower  and  leaves with Aqua Painters. The rose in Pink Pirouette and the leaves in Night Of Navy.  (I outlined the leaves with the night of Navy and aqua painter whilst colouring.)
  • Stamp the sentiment in Night of Navy. Die cut both STAMPED images*. 
  • Die cut another label from a scrap piece of Night of Navy and layer the stamped sentiment over the top.
  • Die cut the gold foil leaves and cut the leaves in half. 
  • Place under coloured flower image using glue dots.
  • Adhere floral image using dimensionals into the bottom right corner.
  • Adhere sentiment with a mix of dimensionals and a touch of glue. 
When die cutting the sentiment place one edge of the die closer to the start of the words.
To shorten the sentiment label place the other side of the sentiment under the die to match the first edge distance and run through the big shot again. Trim the edge (top and bottom just a little) this will give you enough space to show the Night of Navy label underneath.

I have added  Clear Wink of Stella to the roses just to give a little more shine.

Angled View
