We are teaming up with Perfect Paper Crafting today and I am sharing a card I created with my Perfect Paper Crafting Mini Layers Tool and Perfect Cuttiting Mat. Link to all the product I used at the end of the blog post.
I started my card with a piece of patterned paper that I covered with Gesso. I love using gesso, especially to tone or mute the background.
After gesso dried I stamped Vintage Briar Rose Background. I ised my heat tool to speed up the process.
My favorite border size is 1/16 and 1/8. I adhered my patterned paper to cardstock and line up the Perfect Layers Mini tool up along the edge. Perfect Layers is designed with a patented “catch lip” that simply "bumps" up along the paper. My favorite part is that it has a stainless-steel edging for durability and smoothness of cutting. No more cutting into my ruler with an exacto knife. I used The Perfect Little Cutting Mat for all my cutting. It’s 8x10, double sided - Metric (cm) on one side and Imperial (inches) on the other and printed grid lines - includes card template size.
My pink cardstock is 1/16” border and the gold stripe paper is 1/8” border. After those two, I added another 1/16” border with black cardstock.
The last step is die cutting all the bits and pieces and adhering them to the card. Special attention was given to my daisy flower. I used Spiral Daisy Die. Once the flower was formed I added Deco Foil Adhesive and once it dried for a bit I added Gold Deco Foil. For the Large Solid Leaf Stem I used leftover gold foil and die cut the leaves from that.
