The cartridge Sophisticated was used in this latest card, in my self imposed one cartridge only challenge.
The card base was made by welding two of of the Font 1 shape (page 64) and then sized to make a 7" by 5" card. I inked the edges to add a bit of definition.
Layer 1 used the same shape above cut at 6.5" by 4.5", I then used my Cuttlebug to emboss it using one of the folders from the Paper Lace 2 companion set.
Layer 2 was a piece of card stock from a new paper pad that I purchased at Michaels the other day (see below). It was cut at 5" by 3 5/8", as I wanted it to fit just inside the shape of layer 1, and I also punched the corners with a small heart corner punch.
The chandelier (page 31) was cut at 2.25" in pearlescent paper.
The scallop (Phrase page 65) under the sentiment was cut at 3" by 2".
For the sentiment I used Font 2 shadow feature and it was cut at 1". I sprayed the sentiment with glimmer mist. (It worked really well but doesn't show up in the photo.)
I used pop dots to raise layer 2, the chandelier and the scallop under the sentiment, just to add some depth.
And I've added some bling - it helps a little but I think I might have to revisit this cartridge at a later date. I also need some photography lessons :-)
I thought I would share some details of the pad, I mentioned above, it is called Antiquities by G.C.D studios. Its beautiful and has a linen feel to it too and its double sided. It really is the first paper/card stock I can really say I love - its so rich. (I am in now way connected to this company I just LOVE this paper pack).
Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting.
