A simple card to make today.

Items Used:
  • Basic White 8" x 8" Scalloped Card stock
  • White Card
  • Create and Craft Pearlescent Card 12" x 12" - Red
  • Create and Craft Hat Pins 
  • Craftime - Bead Cage
  • Creative Expressions Pearl Embellishment
  • Creative Expressions That Special Touch Mask - Funky
  • Creative Expressions Heartfelt Sentiments
  • Creative Expressions Micro Beads
  • Spellbinders Nestabilities - Labels 20
  • Sheena Douglass Little Bit Scenic Stamps- Silhouette Grasses
  • Tim Holtz Distress Inks - Fired Brick, Black Soot and Rusty Hinge
  • Double Sided Adhesive Sheets
  • Chinese Yuxian Papercuts - Flower
  • Own Stash - Red Polka-dot Ribbon and Red Card, Double-sided Foam Pads
  • Pinflare Silicone Glue
  • Grand Calibar
I first matted and layered some  Create and Craft Pearlescent Card 12" x 12" - Red onto my base card. I cut some White card to fit inside the Red card and rounded off the corners, I stamped two opposite corners with Sheena Douglass Little Bit Scenic Stamps- Silhouette Grasses using Tim Holtz Distress Inks - Fired Brick. I then inked around the edge of the card with Tim Holtz Distress Inks - Rusty Hinge, run it through the Grand Calibar with  Creative Expressions That Special Touch Mask - Funky to add texture then stuck the card down in place.
Out of Own Stash I die cut some Red and White card  using Spellbinders Nestabilities - Labels 20, on the White card I stamped my sentiment from Creative Expressions Heartfelt Sentiments I then placed a piece of Double Sided Adhesive Sheet over the top and coated it in Creative Expressions Micro Beads, it was then I cursed myself as I meant to ink the edge with Fired Brick Distress Ink but it was too late and I did not want to waste it so I carried on with a stern note to myself not to rush anything again!
I placed this on top of the Red die cut and using Double-sided Foam Pads stuck it in the center of my card. Because I had forgotten about inking the edge of my sentiment this looked really bare, not nice at all! In my own stash I had some Chinese Yuxian Paper cuts, these are different wafer thin paper cuts of Oriental embellishment, you can get Butterflies, Lanterns, Dragons and Flowers to name a few so I chose one of the flowers that were Red to put in the bottom right corner then added out of my Own Stash - Red Polka-dot Ribbon in the top left corner, on this I added Creative Expressions Pearl Embellishment and Create and Craft Hat Pins, before I put the hat pins in place I added a red bead on each with the silver cup from Craftime - Bead Cage. Craftime do have their own website but I purchased these beads from The Range.
May I add that the glue I use for sticking anything down is more often than not Pinflare Silicone Glue, I love this glue as it holds everything in place, my apologies to 'Pinflare' as I don't mention it enough, we tend to take 'glue' for granted it rarely gets mentioned what glue we use!

There you have the finished card.

Thank you for looking, Jacquie xxx
