Step by Step Instructions

1 Spritz the lilac night shimmer mist lightly onto a sheet of 160gsm paper and dry using a heat gun.

2  Add some bronze blush mist over the paper and build the colour to the required look you are after. 


Place a piece of lace onto the non stick craft sheet and spritz the cosmic shimmer over the lace.


Depending on the depth of colour apply a few layers of the mist and allow to dry on a sheet of paper.


Select a few images to go under the glass glintz. Either use a circle punch to cut out the images or lay the image under the glass and cut around the photo using the edge as a guide.


Apply a layer of glue to the top of the image. If using a printed image be careful not to overload the glue as the ink will run.


Place the glass glintz over the image and allow to dry. The image will appear magnified & the glue will dry clear.


Cut the cosmic shimmer paper to 17.5 x 17.5cms. Apply the vintage photo ink to the edges of the paper using the cut`n`dry foam.


Score an A3 white card in half and trim the card to 21cm to make a large square card. Trim the brown card to 20cm x 20cm and mount onto the gold mirri card leaving a fine border around the edge. Stamp and emboss the edges of the paper with the swirl stamp and gold embossing powder.


10 Place a strip of wonder tape towards the bottom of the card and attach the lace on top and fasten around the back.


11 Place a row of pearl over the lace and then tie a ribbon around the card and fasten with a bow at the front. Mount the brown card onto the white card using foam pads and then add the stamp and lace piece using more foam tape or glue.


12 Cut 3 oval die shapes in toning colours and place onto the card. Take the prepared glass glintz’s and add 2 to the card and 1 in the centre of the oval.


13 Stamp and emboss 2 perfume bottles using the gold embossing powder. Cut the bottles out ready to ink.


14 Colour the perfume bottles with the dusty concord ink and using the cut`n`dry foam. Add different depths of colour leaving one area very light to give a shaded effect. Apply some glossy accents to areas of the bottle to give added interest. Stamp and add a sentiment to the card & add paper roses to the ribbon.


15 Here is the completed project.

    This is a beautiful card and if I can track down the glass glintz I will definately be making this one. Colouring the lace with inks is a brilliant tip. I knew keeping all my scraps of lace and ribbon was a good idea. Thanks Suzanne.
