"Once Upon a Time"

Hello to you,
I thought, a white lacy background for this card was needed to show off the lovely Broken hearts and Humming bird. Both a treasure for any well loved "Once upon a time" garden.

The size of this card is 14 cm x 21 cm: Taking the A4 neutral cards, fold one in half, this is the base card. With the second card cut 18.7 cm x 13.4 cm., this is the card front. From the paper pad, find the paper with green background and white bleeding hearts. Cut to 14.2 cm x 20.6 cm., this is the matting; distress the edges of the paper. Adhere both matting paper and neutral card to the base card with double dots.

Cut from the very vanilla card; the frame and oval from s5-161, lace points from HCD 744, large lace corner from HCD 729, Stamp and cut the sentiment from HCPC 3594 and HCD 744. Using the stamp positioner stamp the image from HCPC 3642 on to the oval shaped card. Extra stamping for the 3d work; stamp both the image of the bleeding hearts and bird, and the stork of bleeding hearts from the same stamp set. Color all images, then fussy cut for the 3d.

Using the blossom tool and molding kit, bring shape to the bird and bleeding hearts. Adhere these to your work with the double dots. With the tan ink, ink the edges of the oval, lace frame and lace triangle. Apply; stickles to the Arianna lace points and crystal lacquer to the sentiment. To attach the triangle lace, use a thin strip of double-sided tape, this will be placed just under the frame and ribbon.

 Adhere the frame with double dots. Cut and adhere a length of ribbon on the right of the card. Make a double triple bow from the ribbon then adhere to the corner of the lace triangle. The placement for the sentiment is on top of the ribbon knot.

Tuck and adhere the lace points behind the bow. Apply the crystal lacquer to the humming bird to finish.

  3. Wow this is stunning! Very inspiring. Hugs xx

  4. What an amazing card! The lacy background is stunning. And the heartthrob flowers are colored to perfection. But the thing that makes my heart go pitty pat is that incredible hummingbird. He looks as though he could fly right off the card. Your eye for details...the little extra, Sussi!

  5. I have come back to look at this card several times for it has a quality about it that is so classey.
    You just know it when you see a card that it stands out among the rest. This is one very fine card. My papers are coming out to try my hand at this little bird and flowers; just wonder if it could be as lovely as this. Keep sharing as we all love your creations.
