Cup of Pansies

Darling Cup of Pansies card is really unique for that Special Person in your life.  I think this one would be a perfect card for Mother’s Day….thinking Grandma would love this one especially.

My Grandma used to have a huge Teacup & Saucer Collection along with a Salt and Pepper Collection, back in the day.  She used to display her “favorites” on her beautiful doilies she would crochet.  I would spend hours as a little girl looking at all of the pretty things she had in this giant China Cabinet.  The cabinet alone was a gorgeous piece of furniture!  Okay, that was a little “Blast from the Past”!

Now, back to this card.  It’s a 3D, top fold and free standing with a touch of “wobble” card!  I say wobble because the saucer being round, the card base is just a tad “round”.

The total card has been lined with a beautiful matching lavender patterned card stock and the design, with decoupage, has been printed on heavy high gloss photo stock.

The pansies, teacup and greeting plaque are all raised with various thickness of foam squares.  Because of the high gloss photo stock that I printed the images on, I just used a touch of Ice Stickles on the leaves and butterflies as shown in the pic above.

Created a die cut butterfly on pale lavender card stock for the Sentiment Panel

The original design of the card had a pale lavender pattern as a liner, which I love but I just couldn’t see writing a personal Sentiment over the pattern.  Sooooo, I pulled out my Silhouette and created a die cut butterfly design panel using solid light lavender card stock.

Pointing out the Lavender Stickle glitter I used to outline the Butterfly Sentiment Panel

I fussy cut the pansy and butterfly (actually the entire card is hand cut) and positioned them slightly over the sentiment panel.  Of course, the “Glitz Queen” came out and I just had to outline the panel with Lavender Stickles glitter.  I did manage to control “her majesty” from glitzing the pansy and butterfly!  Whewwww, that was a tough one!  LOL
