I began by using an 8.5 X 11 white card stock. I only had to trim of 1/2 of it. So with the 8 X 11 paper I scored it at 3.5 in at each side. I wanted to use some of the Prima Heaven Scent paper that I've had in my stash. Since the Heaven Sent II collection is already out, I really would love to have it. But I need to quick hoarding and use up what I have. Anyhow so a picked out two patterns of the papers from the A5 paper pad. I measured and cut it to size, I then cut it in long stripe pieces and adhering them. I then added a white paper doily that I had received in some happy mail, it seems to be a die cut. Its a thick white card stock that was used. It was just the right size for the width of my card.
Once I adhered the paper I picked out a silhouette cut out dress form and chandelier embellishment that I got from Want2Scrap. I glued these on, then had already decided on using one of the gorgeous Prima vines that Archana carries in her online store Secret Garden Crafts. I added just one of the Large White Gardenias that I received in my September DT package.
Before adhering the vines down with the white gardenia, I used my black glimmer spray from DecoArts to splatter it around the card. I didn't want to get the spray on the flowers, I only wanted it to get onto the background. I like how it turned out! I hope you like it as well. This was a quick card to make and I hope that you are inspired to try making different sizes of cards for different occasions. I didn't add a sentiment because with some of my cards I feel that leaving them blank you can use them for any occasions.
