I created this card during last weekend’s Virtual Stamp night over at Splitcoaststampers for the Spring is for the Chicks challenge. I thought it was the perfect challenge to combine it with the current JustRite Stampers challenge (Black/White plus one additional color).

I started by stamping the both labels from Vintage Oval Label Cling set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on  Neenah Solar White cardstock. The smaller label was stamped twice. One of the smaller label was cut and embossed with Label 6 Nestabilities dies, the other with the smallest of the Petite Oval large Nestabilities die. The large label was cut and embossed with the largest Label 13 Nestabilities die.  The edges of the layers were sponged with Spun Sugar Distress ink while the dies were still on and then they were layered on top of each other with dimensionals. Fancy That Want2Scrap Border Bling was added to the top and bottom of the smaller label die cut.

Two pieces of Solar White cardstock were cut and embossed with a Lace Doily Motifs die. They were adhered on top of each other and the labels were adhered on top of that.

A piece of MME Lost & Found  Madison Avenue paper was cut and embossed with the Spiral Blossom one die. The edges were  sanded before the flower was rolled.  Frost Smooch Glitz was added to the edges and a large Rhinestone was placed in the flower center. It was adhered to a piece of black Core’dination cardstock that had been cut and embossed with one of  Donna Salazar’s Shadow Flowers dies. Another piece of black cardstock was cut and embossed with a Foliage die. The rolled flower layers were adhered to the lower right corner, the foliage die cut on the upper right.

Another piece of Madison Ave paper was cut and embossed with with a  Grand Square Nestabilities die. The edges were sanded and the layer was stitched to a slightly bigger black square. The layers were adhered to a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with a Grand Scallop Square Nestabilities die. The card base was cut and embossed with the same die. Parts of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl on the upper right and lower left corner finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles

  7. Hi Beate,
    What an absolutely stunning card. You have used one of my favourite sets of die ( Lacey doily motifs) and I think having them behind the focal diecuts really emphasises the delicate cut edges so well. Love the soft pink and black, a winner everytime in my book.
    All the best Linda
