Everlasting Love


It is my favorite day of the week again - Wednesday posting at Heartfelt Creations! 
This week I've created a card using the Swans stamp and die set. I'm even impressed with myself for making such a romantic card. 

Enjoy the stroll down my blog today looking at the close up photos!

Prepare the card base from white cardstock 15cm x 30cm. Fold it in two. Cut the 2 printed frames from the Romantique Collection Paper Pad. Using Romantique Swans Cling Stamp setStamp Positioner Kit and Midnight Navy ink pad stamp at the bottom of the white center to create about 3 cm depth of water. With the water pen drag the ink color over the rest of the white background to give color to the water and the sky. 

Take the 2nd frame and prick holes about 0.5cm from the edge, then embroider. Distress the edge. Cut away the white center of this card frame. Ink the inside edges with black ink and adhere it the first frame with Double Dots. Stamp the swans with Versamark ink and heat emboss with gold embossing powder. Cut into the wings, shape them using the Paper Blossoms Tool Kit and Molding Mat. Glue together. 

Die cut the flower swirl from green design paper from the paper pad x 2, glue together. Attach to card front with Double Dots

Take a Very Vanilla colored cardstock, stamp the flowers from the Hearttrob Cling Stamp set and heat emboss them with gold embossing powder. Color the flowers with water pencils and adhere them with Double Dots in their place. Place the ribbon braid and ribbon bow across the bottom of card. Tuck under the overlapping flowers. 

Add Stickles to the white flowers on the card frame and the print in the green part of the frame. Add Crystal Lacquer to the green swirl. Attach card front to card base, the fold being at the top.
