Today I'd like to share a card which uses the new Lovely Magnolia Set 853 from the September Reveal. Such a pretty and versatile set.
To make the background I cut the Spellbinders Tropical Paradise die from black cardstock. This was layered on to a piece of Super Adhesive Sheet, after removing the protective backing and the new Microfine 24kt Gold glitter was burnished into the exposed adhesive.
The background was layered on to a cream cardbase. Then it was on to the flowers. The small flower was stamped six times onto cream cardstock in Versamark and was then heat embossed with Gold Detail. The large flower was stamped and embossed in Gold Detail once on cream cardstock and then again onto Kraft. The leaves and stem were cut off the cream version using the 5" Mini Scissors. They are so good for fussy cutting! All the little flowers were also fussy cut.
All the flowers were colored with the three Aqua Flow Watercolor Markers: Lemon Zest, Fresh Green and Spiced Ginger. These are wonderful to use for watercoloring, they blend really nicely.
A little Green Iris glitter was applied with the Quickie Glue Pen to the centers of the flowers.
Lemonade glitter was applied to the petals of the flowers again with the glue pen.
The big colored flower was attached to the Kraft version with foam mounting tape. A little of the Nuvo Mother of Pearl Embellishment Mousse was added to the leaves.
The sentiment was stamped in Versamark on cream cardstock and was heat embossed with Gold Detail again. This was die cut with the Sizzix Thinlits Dotted Ovals, the next larger die was used to cut the larger oval and these two pieces were sponged with a little Nuvo Mother of Pearl Embellishment Mousse. A little gold thread bow was threaded through a couple of the dots before being layered with Mounting Tape.
The card was then put together as shown using Tear-ific Tape and Mounting Tape.
Here is a list of the products used to make the card, most of which can be found in the SNS store.
