Tattered Lace Challenge #1

Good Morning!

We're so very, very pleased to announce that Carol has joined the blogging DT at the Tattered Lace Challenge Blog! Here's the first card made using the gorgeous Lavish Blooms Die set for the very first challenge!

For this card, we've used the Dreamees Pretty Projects Templates & More CD - the brown paper, teal paper for the flowers, backing papers and sentiment have all been printed off of the CD onto cream paper (colours used are Mint, Brown and Teal). They've all been layered onto a cream 6x6 scalloped front card blank.

The edges of each layering piece have been distressed using Gathered Twigs distress ink and then stamped using the Stitching stamp from one of our latest stamp sets: the Dresser.

For the border across the card, one of the Lavish Blooms Stamen dies has been cut from brown paper and then glued along the top and bottom edge of a strip of backing paper, to give the effect of a punched edge. This one uses the heart stamen which is fast becoming one of our favourites!

The gorgeous cream swirls are another Tattered Lace die set called the Florentine Flourish - it's so versatile and perfectly sized to fill out a flower arrangement (I love it!).

The flowers were made using the Lavish Blooms Poppy die set - we've used a typical rose technique to make both flowers, cutting out three of each design and layering them inside one another - we've got a video tutorial of this flower making technique available HERE. We've also added a pearl in the centre to embellish it.

Finally, we've used a few different sized pearls to create a corner to finish off!

Don't forget to pop over to the Tattered Lace Challenge Blog to enter your creation using the Lavish Blooms collection - the dies always create stunning results since they're so intricate and delicate!

Have a fabulous weekend!
