PSX Botanical Pear Card


Hopefully Spring is now just around the corner, and so to celebrate, my card this week is a fresh design featuring PSX Botanical Pear Stamp.  This card was made for a very dear fellow forumite, Jane, who is in my Birthday Card swap group and who I am so proud to be able to call my friend, she’s an inspiration.

Card Recipe:
Stamp: PSX Botanical Pear
Colouring Mediums: Memento Ink London Fog, Promarker Pens, Tattered Angels Glimmer Spritz
Paper & Card: Conqueror, Stardream Opal, First Edition, DCWV
Tools: Spellbinders Venetian Accents and Motifs, Silhouette Cameo, Grand Calibur, Anna Griffin Ribbon Punch
Embellishments: Double satin ribbon 3mm, Cotton Lace, hand-made beaded Hat Pins, crystals, mulberry cherry blossoms, Anna Griffin bubble

To make this card, using my Silhouette Cameo, I cut the card base from stardream cardstock, and the flourish background & tree from DCWV and First Edition patterned card.  The ribbon-edged border was cut from more on K&Company Elegance Shimmer with an Anna Griffin ribbon punch and threaded with 3mm double satin.  I also used my Spellbinders Venetian Accents and Motifs. 

The main image is PSX Botanical Pear Stamp, inked in Memento London Fog and coloured with Promarkers.  I stamped the image twice and decoupaged the Pear and Blossom.  Finally, I cut the image out using a Spellbinder border die and spritzed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Spritz.










To add a bit of interest to the accent pieces, I heat-embossed the filigrees tree with two different embossing powders, one glitter and one pearl.  The effect is very subtle and hard to pick up on the photographs!





To ensemble, I mounted the flourish background onto the backing card.  Next, I attached a layer of cotton lace to the back of the Anna Griffin punched threaded ribbon border.  I used a number of accents pieces from Spellbinders Venetian Accents and Motifs, embellished with rhinestones and an Anna Griffin Botanical dome sticker. Finally, I added a gardenia mulberry flower and a couple of hand made Pearl Hat Pins.
