Vase of Pansies

This is a pretty card that could be used for many occassions - I added a general For You as I was unsure who this would be going to - or when!

I used a sheet purchased from Crafts You Print and if you would like to purchase the number is

To make this card I chose an A4 sheet of mid purple heavy card stock, scored on BOTH sides of the card so it creased smoothly rather than split the fibres on the fold.

I printed a sheet from a lovely cd filled with backing papers for every occassion - Kanban Seasons

Then I used a Martha Stewart corner punch - Bubble Bath - to punch the four corners.

This was then added to my card blank leaving a small border of purple showing.

I cut out the base image and positioned onto my backing paper using double sided tape, then as I cut out each piece of 3d decoupage I shaped then using a paper shaping tool and foam mat then attached to my design using pinflair silicone glue

Once I had all my parts cut out and put into place on my card I cut off the shank of a pretty white  raised button with a gem in the centre - and added to the centre of the ribbon around the vase!

The finishing touches were a printed sentiment which I edged with a dark purple pro marker and attached at an angle at the top off centre and then highlighted parts of the flower centres with a Sakura quickie glue pen and irrendescent glamour dust!

A pretty card - dont you agree?
