Last week I had the opportunity to experiment with the wonderful 3-D art that Beverly has in the Classy Cards N Such Online Store. I chose to work with the 3-D die-cut flowers by the sheet. The sheet I worked with has Lilacs, Hyacinths, and Anemones on it. This was super easy and fun. All you do is pop-out the completed flower arrangement that you want to work with. Then, working by numbers (and the sheet is numbered) you adhere the layers on top of the die-cut arrangement with foam pads. I used the new foam pads by Joy Crafts that Beverly has recently added to the store and I really like working with them. I bought both sizes and I'm glad I did. The smallest size is just perfect for those little tiny things, like flower stems, that need to be popped-up.
Once I had my arrangement completed I adhered it to a Stardream Chiara Coral lacy oval that I cut with my Spellbinders Lacy Oval die. For my card base I used Esse Smooth Pearlized White Neenah Paper. I added a layer of designer paper from the Romantique Collection by Prima. Next, I added a strip of the Textured Two-Toned Ribbon by May Arts in Pink/White across the base layer before adhering the lacy oval with my floral arrangement. This ribbon is so gorgeous in real life. For the finishing touch, I added some Silver Rhinestones Swirls to the corners. The swirls are actually from a larger piece of bling from Want 2 Scrap and I just cut off the pieces I wanted to use on my card. Don't worry, the rest of the bling is still very useable.
This card came together quickly using the 3-D art and I strongly encourage you to try a sheet. You'll be hooked in no time! I bought one of every sheet and I can't wait to make another card using these gorgeous flowers.
I am entering this card into the Stamps R Us "bling it on challenge" and the 2 Sisters "anything goes challenge".
