Vanessa DT - November Inspiration

Hi there, Vanessa here with some more inspiration for you using the Francheska Collection 

So I started with an 8" x 8" white card base and then printed off the backing paper that I wanted to use, I matted this onto some kraft card and glued this to the card base.

Next I printed off the Francheska Collection Elements, the Journalling Cards and the Tag Sheet 

I chose one of the tags from the tag sheet and die cut it out using the Spellbinders Grand Labels One, I used the smallest one for this and then inked around the edges with a mix of Vintage Photo Distress ink and Rusty Hinge Distress Ink, I then matted this onto Kraft card, to get the smaller mat I drew around the die that I used to cut out the tag and then cut this out with scissors, this was then mounted onto foam pads and placed in the top left hand side

After this I fussy cut out all of my elements, some of which needed a craft knife to do so but the result was worth it and didn't take too long and for those of you who don't own a die cutting machine this pack is just lovely.  Next I added foam pads to 3 corners of the Journalling Card and then glue on the corner where it was going to overlay the floral tag and then glued my leaves into place, I added foam pads to the back of the flowers and positioned them over the leaves and glued my two butterflies down.

I then added glitter glue to the centre of the flowers and once this had dried I added glossy accents on top of this to really give dimension to them.  I then glued gold and black gems to the bodies of the butterflies and black gems to each corner of the card.

I hope that you like my latest piece of inspiration for you and if there is anything else you would like to know just let me know 

Best wishes
