Beggahuna made this Gorgeous sketch for our Card Adventure
And here's my card using the sketch, and how I did this.
supplies needed: cream cardstock (base of your card) PP's – distress ink – embellishments.
I folded a piece of cream cardstock double, and choose my PP that I wanted to use.
Distressed and inked all their edges.
I wanted to do some sweet stitching on my lace, so I glued 2 pieces of lace to a tiny strip
here's what it looked like on the front. Ready for stitching.
I gave the lace some cross stitching.
I hand stitched my background paper.
Added some real coffee spots. And started to layer my PP, like in the sketch.
I cut a circle out of PP and layered it on a green piece of PP. Made my scalloped circle
by using a deco scissor. The yellowish flower was handmade. I cut the smallest flower from,
Tim Holtz's Tattered florals die, Used several pieces of fabric for this and stack them together.
I cut out (from the barcode strip of the paper that came in the kit)
2 tiny birdies and gave them a touch of glitter. For the finishing touch I added Platinum stickles.
And I was done.February 14, 2012 at 11:19 am #156690
I really like the cross stitching over the lace. How do you get your circle to look so nice and round using those scissors? LOL I'm so challenged when it comes to those things. ;DFebruary 14, 2012 at 12:32 pm #156691February 14, 2012 at 1:24 pm #156692February 14, 2012 at 1:35 pm #156689

This is how I did that…….February 14, 2012 at 1:40 pm #156693
cut a circle and a square
glue your circle on the suqare
begin cutting like this
there is your perfect *deco* cut circle.
For this one I decided to put a tad smaller glass in the middle of my circle. brushed some Gesso around it. Let that air dry for 10-15 minutes then with a knife I added some lines in it. Give it a quick dry with my heatgun and added some Glossy Accents on some spots, which got sprinkled with fine glitter.
Perfect embellishment for my next card!February 14, 2012 at 2:46 pm #156694
A beautiful card Paulien and a great tutorial. I know it is week three but I have just worked out what pp meansFebruary 14, 2012 at 4:34 pm #156695
Oh my gosh Jennie… really?? Why didn't you asked?

esp when it comes to manufactorers (sp)February 14, 2012 at 6:25 pm #156696
Boy you sure have a lot of tricks up your sleeve! Love the cross stitched lace and how you threw a little coffee on there! That's a beautiful sketch and I love your card. I'm hoping that this week I'll get caught up on getting some cards done.
*giggling at Jennie* There's a few abbreviations that give me trouble too. I just skim over them thinking I'll figure it out some day. LOL. There should be a dictionary somewhere.February 14, 2012 at 9:13 pm #156697
