When Angels Whisper


 Eau de Nil is my favourite colour at the moment and here I have combined it with black to create this striking card.

It is made primarily from the Spellbinders Blossom Four set of dies



which shows you how versatile they can be once you think outside the box.

Cut the second largest blossoms die from the centre of two pieces of black cardstock . Then emboss the black card with the Couture Creations Adagio embossing folder. 



Now on your Eau de Nil or chosen colour cardstock stamp and emboss the sentiment ‘To hear the angels whisper you must listen with your heart’ and the beautiful girl who seems to be daydreaming from the Creative Expressions Fantasy stamp sheet 



I used Versamark and Cosmic Shimmer Lapis Black which has a green hue to it and is softer than black. 

Then place your largest Blossom die and the second largest onto some card and cut out twice to create two frames. Emboss with the Adagio folder and lay them over your sentiment and the girl's head.

Finally, cut out the second largest blossom die and run through with the Adagio embossing folder. Trim the petals to use as corners on your card.

Fold an A4 piece of Eau de Nil paper in half, trim if necessary to square up. Line up your stamped panels inside and out. Not as easy as it sounds - so be patient!  Fix them all in place along with your frames and your musical corners and decorate to choice.

I used some black jet beads but you could use Cosmic Shimmer PVA Glossy Black.


Worth little extra patience, I think,
Hope you agree,
Enjoy,
Linda

  1. A really great card - gorgeous colours and embellishments. I am running a competition for World Card-Making Day on my blog (http://christmaspiecrafts.blogspot.co.uk/2012/09/world-card-making-day-6-october-2012.html) which is being sponsored by new craft magazine: Make & Craft. Would be lovely to have you join in.
