So here I am back with my second card of the day, please scroll down to see my first post.
This card actually took three attempts to make. I started off with a very different central panel but it just wasn't working so I decided to use stamped stripes instead. Then, my first attempt at stamping these went horribly wrong, I must have my specs on wonky today! :)
Anyhow, here it is finally finished!
I started by adhering the glittered polka dot cardstock to the card base. Next I cut a smaller panel from white cardstock and stamped diagonal stripes, then rounded the corners and added the sentiment. I adhered this panel to the background using 3D foam. I did intend to adhere this flat but the glittery cardstock needs a very strong adhesive to ensure things stay put! Next I stamped and die cut the flower and leaves. A few pearls finished off the card.
