Just For You Card - Sharon Blaxter

Please read all instructions before commencing

N.B.  Before commencing this project please Mist the Crochet Doilies a few hours before you want to use them to allow them to dry thoroughly.

1.   Using a piece of Pearlescent Card cut to 13.5cm x 13.5cm, attach La Fleur stencil in one of the corners on the front of the paper using removable tape.
Note.  Please do not use thick cardstock as the embossing will not show up.

2.   Using a light box or resting on the glass of a well lit window,
place the stencil on the bottom and the Pearlescent card on top.
With the Embossing Stylus Tool complete all of the embossing on the template.

3.   Turn over and place onto your pricking mat, with your fine pricking tool prick out the holes for the stitching.
When complete, carefully remove the stencil from the back or the Pearlescent Card and repeat until the square is complete.

4.  Complete the stitching as shown on the La Fleur stencil using gold thread

5.   Using a Cuttlebug die-cut 2 swirls in light green card, adhere to the card with Zig glue.

6.  Take 3 small Crochet Doilies which have been coloured using  Perfect Pearls Mist and have dried thoroughly. 

Attach a Pearl Brad in the centre of each of the Crochet Doilies , arrange to your liking and adhere with Quick Dry Glue.

7.  Using a computer generated sentiment, die-cut a circle using a Cuttlebug.
Slightly chalk around the edge and place onto the topper with foam squares.

8. Cut a piece of Violet card 30cm x 15cm, score in the centre using a bone folder.
Cut a piece of gold Mirri Card 14.2cm x 14.2cm and adhere with double sided tape to the main card.

9.  Carefully place your topper onto the the gold Mirri card using double-sided tape.
Your card is now complete.

Ah another beautiful creation from you Sharon, and I do love the way you have used the crocheted flower. I have seen them used before but not as nicely as on your card, the colours work well, Shaz in oz.x
