I have another soft and romantic card full of pearls and lace to share with you today featuring the beautiful Amazing Paper Grace March 2022 Die of the Month – Bella Ovalette. I have been going through my stash of papers and dies and found this absolutely beautiful pearl embossed paper that my daughter had bought for me from Sydney many years ago. It is such a soft and pretty silver/blue colour and was perfect as the background to the stunning dies. Everything is included in this Bella Ovalette die set including the flowers and leaves and all I needed to add extra was the sentiment from Beccy’s Place. Lots of different layers on top of the embossed paper makes this card so ‘amazing’ in real life.
Dies were provided by Amazing Paper Grace for today’s creations.
For my card I have made a top folding 5″ x 7″ card out of white cardstock. I trimmed the blue/silver paper to 4 7/8″ x 6 7/8″ and added it to the front of the card.
I die cut the one decorative base out of white cardstock using the large decorative frame and then die cut two decorative frames using the decorative frame and the inner rectangle frame from white cardstock. These were stacked together and then added to the card front. I then die cut 4 decorative rectangles using the plain rectangle die, the middle decorative die and the inner plain die out of white cardstock. I stacked these together and added them inside the larger decorative frame.
I die cut two inner decorative accents using the small accent die and the circle die and adhered them together.
Using the decorative accent as a guide for placement I stamped the sentiment from Beccy’s Place on one of the discarded inner panels from the rectangle dies using Tuxedo Black ink. This stamped inner panel was then added to the inside of the rectangle frames.
I die cut the flowers out of soft flower shaping paper and coloured one set with light blue ink and the other set with light yellow inks. After spritzing the petals with water I shaped them using a small and medium ball stylus on foam mats. Once dry these were arranged on the bottom right and the top left of the rectangle frame as shown.
I die cut the leaves from the light green cardstock and added them around the flowers as shown.
To finish I added pearls to the flower centres and on the die cuts.
