Good Thursday morning. My card today was made using the You are the Very Best sentiment from the Rubbernecker Stamps Best Friends set. I rarely use sentiments as the main focal point of my card but when I do I like to embellish them with frames and flowers. I paired the sentiment with the 5019D Nested Rounded Corner Rectangle with Pierce Die, 5023D Nested Rectangle with Pierce, 5132D Rectangle Combo #2 OPC Die, 5112D Mixable Flower Stack and 5110D Small Leaf Group.
The Flowers and Foliage
I cut two sets of flowers. I formed each flower petal using my needle nose pliers, curling some edges forwards and some edges backwards to create a more natural looking flower. I attached the flower layers together using glossy accents and finished by adhering a pre made white Nuvo Crystal Drop in each with glossy accents. The foliage leaves were gently formed using my fingers.
You are the Very Best Sentiment
I secured the sentiment stamp and cardstock in my MISTI, applied black versafine ink and stamped the sentiment twice to get a perfect image. I LOVE MY MISTI! Next, I applied clear embossing powder to the sentiment and heat embossed.
Building the Layers
I had a few parts and pieces from other projects on my desk so I used them to create different frame layers. I attached the yellow pierced background layer to the white scalloped layer using ATG adhesive. Next I used rolled up double stick tape to attached the pierced frame layer. I attached the pierced rounded sentiment layer to the card base using mounting tape. I finished by arranging and attaching the foliage leaves and flowers to the corner of the sentiment layer using glossy accents.
