Thinking of You

Items Used:
Grand Calibar
Black card
White card
Spellbinders M-Bossabilities Folder-Garden lattice
Spellbinders Nestabilities - Splendid Circles
Justrite Cling - Secret Garden background stamp
Justrite Cling - Large fancy sentiments stamps
Heartfelt Creations Dies - Decorative Lattice Swirl
IndigoBlu Guilding Flakes-Morris Dance
Creative Expressions - Microbeads
                                                                              Cosmic Shimmer Pearl PVA
Double sided adhesive sheet

First I folded an A3 White card in half to form an A4 size card for my base, I then matted and layered some Black card. I put some A4 White card through the Garden Lattice folder to add some interest  before mounting it onto the Black card, cutting it down to size to make sure there was enough space around the edge of the Black card to place Cosmic Shimmer Pearl PVA glue dots to look like pearls. I set this aside to dry.
I then inked the Secret Garden background stamp onto Black card with my versamark pad and covered it with Morris Dance Gilding Flakes, this really stood out against the Black card.
Using more Black card I cut the largest circle from Spellbinders Nestabilities Splendid Circles. I stamped my sentiment onto White card, placed the second circle on top and inked through with Gold pigment ink, I removed the die and covered the card in double sided adhesive, securing the die back on top and cut the circle out using the Grand Calibar, once cut remove the adhesive cover and coat in microbeads to add some texture.

I fixed the White circle on top of the Black circle and put this aside. Out of White card I cut both of the Heartfelt Creations Decorative Lattice Swirl, inked around the edges with my versamark pad and coated these with more Gilding Flakes-Morris Dance, although I did not manage to get much gilding flakes on the edge what I did get I thought made them stand out.

I place the decorative swirls on the right hand side of the card top and bottom, within the center of these I placed the two circles raising them up with foam pads. I then placed my gilded secret garden background feature on the left hand side of the card to finish it off. 

The finished dimension is 113/4" x 8 1/2".  Hope you like it?
Thanks for looking, Jacquie xx
