Creative Expressions Thursday

Hi Folks

I have been having another play with this months goodies from Creative Expressions including the gorgeous decoupage papers , I decided to make a card with  them this week and I hope you like it.

Something a little different for me, very simple but neat and quite elegant I think.

 I took a piece of blush card and covered it with the decoupage Rose papers, I then added three layers of seam binding to the top third of the card I mounted that onto another piece of card this time I used Milk.
 I made a double mat with a pierced edge in blush card.and raised it to a 5mm height in between with foam.
 I added the first decoupaged piece onto the pierced mat.
 Next I stamped a Creative Expressions sentiment onto more blush card and I nipped out the corners with a corner rounderI then added thick foam to the back and layered it with another piece of blush card.

 I added a very thin sticky tape to each of the four sides and covered each in diamond sprinkles glitter and burnished it into the tape before tipping off the excess.I added some 8MM  pearls to the corners.         
I took another piece of card , but this time much thinner and cut out a spiral by hand.

 I rolled up the spiral and glued it to the bottom piece and rolled back some if the top edges..
I inked the edges with tattered rose Distress ink and added some leaves to the back to complete my rose for the centre of my seam binding bow. Lastly I added some stickles around the edges just here and there for  a little sparkle.

I tied a seam binding bow for the corner and added some pieces of left over pearl strings in white . My last thing was to add some 5mm flat back pearls to the corner and that finished it off nicely.

Here is the finished card again.

Very feminine this one, unless you know a fella that grows special roses etc otherwise this is for a special friend I think.

I hope you like it and enjoyed having a read through, you can also use a napkin for this technique if you see one you love the pattern on.

Have  a great Thursday and lots of love
