Iris on Velvet
I have not used velvet on a card for ages and it is something I love, oooooooooo that wonderful feel of the card as you hold it, totally scrumptious. For this card I used dark blue velvet which was attached to the card with adhesive spray. The digi is from Delicious Doodles called Iris and Butterfly Frame. I wanted a smooth texture behind the flower but not plain paper. After a bit of playing around I printed the background and then put a layer of acetate (well it is an overhead projection sheet really) over it and then put the digi which I had fussy cut on top. I fussy cut a second layer of two parts of the digi, the butterfly and the font iris and bud and added a layer of Ice Stickles. It does not really show in the photo but has given just that little bit of sparkle which looks great. Both layers were attached with foam tape. To add a bit more texture to the card I added some pearls and blue tulle type material I picked up in out local ( 75km away <g>) craft store. The sentiment is short and sweet but says everything I think - 'A garden is a friend you can visit anytime'.
