ID: MC March/12 - Aster Topper - Lace - I Write  You card
size: 5"w x 6.5"h

Created: March 18, 2012

I got a bunch of the newest Spellbinder dies from Quietfire Design on Friday and have been having fun with my new toys. I really wanted to play with the Aster Flower Topper set...

I'm using a quote stamp from Quietfire Design



I stamped the lace doily (Stampin Up "Hello Doily") with Perfect Medium and stamped on textured dark blue cardstock (recycled Dreamweaver packaging...) and embossed with white embossing powder. Stamped the quote the same way.

Created the scallop edging with jumbo scallop scissors, cutting a red metallic wide quilling paper, some white cardstock and the edge of the textured cardstock. Adhered them together and onto my white card.

Cut out the pack of letters with my electronic cutter and stamped the image (Flourishes From the Desk of") with Versafine Black Onyx. Colored with watercolor pencils. Adhered to card.

The flower uses all the dies from the Aster Flower Topper set, sponged with Distress Barn Door and the insets popped out. The center frill is a wide quilling paper, fringe cut with scissors and rolled into a tight coil, then fluffed out. I punched a hole in the center of each flower layer and pressed my fringe piece through them and adhered to a circle base. Only the fringe coil and the bottom die cut is adhered. the other layers are loose. It has a nice 3D effect.

I added some half pearls and a couple rhinestones in the upper corners, and 2 rhinestone flourish sprigs coming out from under the flower.
