ID: MC Aug 16 - Jasmin - ECD Mr, Mrs, Forever & Always - The Heart Has Its Reason card
size: 5"w x 7"h

Created: August 15, 2016

Susan Tierney Cockburn recently uploaded a video on making her Jasmine flowers (I spelt it the French way without the "e" sigh!!!) on the Elizabeth Craft Designs uTube HERE It was just in time since I was trying to decide what flower to use on this wedding card... I thought it was perfect.

I'm using several of the newest  "A Way With Words" dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs which will be available soon ("Mr, Mrs" 2pce set); ("Forever"), ("Calligraphic Elements 2  Ampersand" 3pce set); ("Always") all available on Quietfire Design HERE HERE; HERE and HERE

I'm using quote stamp on the inside from Quietfire Design   ("The Heart Has It's Reason"); 


Scored and side folded my white cardstock. Layered a piece of light blue Ruche cardstock leaving a 1/8" border all around.

Created my flowers from 65# Soft Finish cardstock, using the smooth side. Tooled the flowers and added a dot of ochre Pan Pastels. Added some ochre pastels to the stamen tips, rolled the die cut and adhered to the center of the Jasmin.

The leaves I colored with Distress "Mowed Lawn", both sides, tooled the vein and added a stroke of the ochre to the high point, then tooled the tip.

Adhered all the flowers onto the leafy branches.

Adhered a piece of blue/gold Sari ribbon and tied a multi loop fork bow.

Die cut the "Mr/Mrs" from a deep blue cardstock and the "&" from the white.  


On the inside left: Stamped the quote on white cardstock using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Die cut using a Stitched Rectangles die set (Elizabeth Craft Designs), Sponged some blue around the edge and adhered to inside of card.

Inside right: Stamped the flower sprig (Flourishes "Bees and Blooms") using Distress pads in blues and greens, misted with water and stamped. Inked the stamp again using Black Onyx and stamped again.

Die cut the "Forever & Always" from the deep blue cardstock and then the words from white cardstock. adhered the words offset to the blue layer, then onto the card.
