Elegance in a bird of paradise

Hi Everyone

Sue here

Today I have made a card in only two colours white and memento cantaloupe and a touch of silver.

First I used a direct to paper technique, placing the memento ink directly onto my white cardstock and rubbing over it.  I then heat dried it off then used a piece of acetate stamped with a background stamp in versamark and heat embossed with wow silver embossing powder.  I then used brads  to attach this to the inked backing card.

I then die cut 4 x spellbinder fleur de lis squares, cut diagonal into the middle on all 4 then concertina folded each square and glued together giving it a star shape.

I then die cut a spellbinder picot edge circle (small) and before taking it out of the die, inked through the holes after embossing.

I then die cut a spellbinder bird flourishes and agian inked through after embossing.

I then die cut 2 x spellbinder elegant posts and again inked through after embossing before thaking the card out of the die.

I then stamped a sentiment from the Penny Black  winter wonders onto a small metal tag.

Again simple elegance.

Take care
