The beautiful Jasmine!

LinkGood Morning Everyone! I hope you are well, it's Jane here and I have a card to share with you today made using the beautiful 'Jasmine' who is available to buy here from Sugar Nellie. Jasmine is so tall and elegant I just had to create a nice girly card with her using lots of pink and flowers.

The papers I used are by Echo Park and the gingham is a Pink Petticoat download. I used some beautiful pink ribbon from The Ribbon Girl and the flowers and button are from my stash. The sentiment is by CC designs. The finished card is 6x6inches. I thought I would give you a step by step breakdown of how I made the card with a couple of tips along the way which you will hopefully find useful!

To make the card:
  1. Cut the gingham to 6x6inches to fit the card base and die cut a scalloped square from the middle of the paper which you will use to frame the image.
  2. Cut a piece of cream flowery paper to 14x14cm, add to gingham square, sew around the inside edge of the flower paper.
  3. Cut a strip of gingham paper to 15cmx5cm, top with a strip of yellow patterned paper cut to 15cmx4cm, sew around the edges and then add to the papers you layered up in step 2 with double sided tape.
  4. Stamp the sentiment on the bottom right of the yellow strip, wrap with ribbon and add all layers to the card base with double sided tape.
  5. Stamp and colour your image, die cut into a square and add to scalloped square. Add to the card at an angle. By adding the image this way, I find you are able to get other embellishments on the card without overwhelming the image and it adds a bit more interest than just adding it on straight.
  6. Add flowers to the top right of the image and a bow topped with a button in the diagonally opposite corner to balance the design. I always add my flowers with a glue gun to make sure they stick on hard and fast!
  7. Add a couple of gems, finish with glitter and leave to dry!

I will leave you with a close up of the beautiful Jasmine, coloured in with Promarkers and Flexmarkers and glittered with glitter glue.
Have a fabulous Wednesday!

I have this stamp but I haven't inked her up yet. I love how bright you have made her. (Smiles.)
I also love these Echo Park papers I keep seeing! They are just perfect for Sweet little Jasmine too!
Hugs to you.

Love the way you've got the flower in her hair & the frog isholding echoed by the pink one in the patterned paper. The colours are a delightful mixture too & superbly framed by the gingham.
