A Vase Of Pansies

Hello my blogger friends
I have managed to finish off 3 cards that I started yesterday as well as get lots of bits and bobs sorted too!
I have used a sheet that has been a favourite for a long time – this may well be the 6th or 7th card I have made with it – all different too!
The sheet is by Robyn Cockburn and was purchased from the sheet number is 75407_123
So materials for this card I used ….
Heat mat to work on and protect your surface – I always use it...
smooth black A4 card
Decoupage sheet
A4 piece of aqua bazill card
piece of purple mirri card
length of lilac organza ribbon
4 metallic purple card candy
5 clear AB gems
Sticky pads
Eazi Score Board & tool
Tonic 8” guillotine
Shaping tool from
Foam shaping mat – stamping mat or even a mouse mat
To make the card …
I folded the smooth black card in half to make the card blank.
The aqua card was trimmed to fit the card front and attached with double sided tape.
Next I cut the base image out – on the sheet Robyn says you can stick this to a sheet of folded card and cut around it to make your shaped card but I had other ideas.
I laid the vase of flowers onto a piece of purple mirri card and marked the size, this was then cut out and I used a nicked corner punch to lightly shape the corners.
The mirri layer was stuck to the card again with double sided tape – I positioned it towards the top so I had room below for a sentiment of bow.
The vase of flowers base layer was attached to the mirri card with double sided tape then the decoupage elements added with small sticky pads...I lightly shaped the pansies as I was adding them.
A bow was tied using wide lilac organza ribbon and was stuck under the vase with tape.
To finish I added 2 metallic purple card candy to the bottom corners of the aqua card then clear AB gems to the corners of the mirri card and one in the centre of the bow around the vase.
And there we have a pretty vase of pansies card that would suit so many different occasions
It is another for the use or sell box
Catch you again tomorrow – same place folks
