Female Card - Perfectly Perserved

Perfectly Preserved is a great stamp set SU have put together - with flowers, a glass jar, cherries, pear, apple and corn cob, this is a great set to add to your rubber stamp collection.

This card is heavily cased from a couple of cards made by fellow demonstrators.  I wanted to incorporate a couple of techniques in this card, including paper piercing, faux frame and sponging, so this is the end result.

I highlighted the paper piercing in Gumball Green (another in colour) and framed the jar of flowers by placing a rectangular template on the Whisper White card stock and tracing around that template with the coordinating SU Marker.  The jar and flowers were stamped from Perfectly Preserved (W126690 / C126692) is lightly sponged with Pool Party just to give it a little depth and colour.  The 3D flowers were punched out of the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack 118309 and the centre rubbed with the end of a pen to give them shape.  The centres were filled randomly with different sized pearls.

The jar and flowers are lifted using SU Dimensionals (foam squares) to give the card a lot more pop.

And a lot closer...where you can see the faux frame is rough, and that is the idea.  The punched out flowers are curved and the image is raised.

I hope you can see the sponging in the jar and the bow that ties on the Jewellery Tag 117190 a darling little punch.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at this card, there is so much more one can do with this set.  I look forward to being able to sit and just do that.  Hopefully after the rain and the arthritis in my hands settle down!
