Back to the Future!

Good Morning All and a very Happy Thursday!

As yesterday was "Back to the Future" Day, I thought the sentiment on this week's project was apt!

I'll start off with apologies for tempting you with these gorgeous papers.  I'll just say that if you but them, you won't be disappointed!

Anyway, on with the card.....

Start by using one of the outer edges of the Mini Gemini Dies-Vela to cut out a patterned edge square.  Do this by cutting the first edge, lining up the die so that it touches the cut of the first one and cutting again until you have a square.

I hope the picture explains what I mean!

Cut out an aperture using the Noble-Double Pierced Square Dies.

Cut a square of Craft Consortium Bloom Beautiful paper and glue it onto the blank  8x8 card.
Attach the frame over the top with 3d foam pads.

Ink up the sentiment from the "Delightful Sentiments" stamp set with Black Archival Ink.  Stamp into Coconut White card and heat emboss using Cosmic Shimmer Clear Powder.
Cut out with a smaller Noble-Pierced Square Die.
Add to the card with pads.

Die cut flowers from the Finishing Touches-Camellia Complete Petals Die Set.  Glue 4 small ones to the corners of the frame.  Add 3mm self adhesive pearls to the centres.
Die cut more flowers and layer them using 2 different patterned papers.

Glue onto the frame and add 5mm pearls to the centres.
Add pearls to the corners of the sentiment.
Cut up some Mini Pearl Swirl embellishments and attach to the frame to finish.

 And there's the finished card!  I do hope you like it.
What you can't see is the beautiful pearl finish to the paper..it's gorgeous!

Well, that's it for this week.  Many thanks for stopping by and leaving comments...they are all much appreciated.

I'll be back next week with another card....more of those stunning papers....sorry!

As always, everything used is from Creative Expressions.

So until next time, have a happy, crafty week!

Wow, who'd have thought of using the edge of a gemini die to make a fancy edged square! Love how you've decorated the frame, it just brings it all together somehow.
