Do you ever get a new die, use it once, then keep it on your desk thinking you need to use it again but in a different way? That's how this card came about.
I used the Sue Wilson Mini Gemini Die - Aquila on a previous card where I angled it diagonally. But after making that card, I really wanted to use the die horizontally on a card; it just took some time to figure out what other dies to use with it.
After finally figuring it out, I cut two of the Aquila die but thought they looked best if I left a small space between them. I embossed a piece of cardstock with the Tattered Lace Lattice embossing folder set and placed that in between the two dies. I actually used the long thin embossing folder that comes in the set:
Next came the focal point of the card. I really am drawn to using ovals more than circles or rectangles on my cards, so I cut one of the ovals from the Sue Wilson Austrian Collection - Salzburg.
How pretty is that? I can just see using the outer oval as stained glass on a future card.
Of course, I had to decide on what flower to put in the middle of the oval, but that wasn't difficult since I had a Sue Wilson Delicate Daisy already cut out and staring right at me on my desk.
The pearl flower centers I've been using on a lot of my flowers were ordered on ebay years ago. I never really got to use them until now. Ecstasy Crafts has a huge assortment of pearls in a variety of shapes and sizes that you can use.
Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.
All of the products used to make my card are available at Ecstasy Crafts.
