Something a bit different from me today...a card with no stamping! A bit of ink creeped in to distress the edges of the card and papers and to tone down the bright white on the ribbon but the rest is all decoupage.
I received some fabulous new products from The Crafthouse Press to have a play with this week, this card is made using the Love pack of the new Gorjuss girls decoupage. Each pack contains two sheets of a 3D die cut decoupage featuring delightful Gorjuss images, plus two coordinating backing sheets, enough to make 4 cards with some leftovers.
The die cut shapes are great and perfect to make a quick but stunning card. To make my card, I cut a card blank with my Nesties and covered the front with some gorgeous coordinations card to match the girls dress.
I then cut a label shape from the turquoise backing paper and layered it with some rafia lace from Quixotic paperie and some of the stripy paper from the kit. I sewed the layers together with my machine before sticking to the card base.
I then got to work adding the decoupage which I embellished with gems. I toned down some white striped ribbon from Paperchase with some Antique linen distress inks and tied it into a box embellishing with a black popper and some black gems. I tied a charm with string to stick behind the ribbon.
As a finishing touch, I added the sentiment and a couple of little Martha stewart butterflies embellished with gems.
It was great fun to do something different for a change. I will be back soon with the other card I made from the pack.
Have a lovely Tuesday.
