Save The Date - with Papermilldirect



Hello and welcome to this week's Blog Post, and I have news of another +papermilldirect Special Offer for you:
The Design Team have been looking ahead to the Wedding season for our makes this week, and I have a 'Save The Date' card to share with you.
The base card has been created by scoring and folding Papermilldirect ‘Ultra White Pearlised’ card and has then been trimmed down to 5” x 7” standard card size.
I used SVG cutting files from Birds Cards (as always links at bottom of post) to create the layered ‘Retro Rose Panel’ front,  importing into Cricut Design Space along with the ‘save the date circle’ SVG file. Within Design Space it was easy to resize and also ‘weld’ the 2 images together to create a single cut panel piece. The Ultra White Pearlised card cut very cleanly in my Explore and the delicate sparkle adds a touch of luxury. The decorative panel was backed with the second layer of the Retro Rose cut file cut in PMD ‘New Lilac’ cardstock.
The sentiment aperture is backed with a square of white vellum, then a co-ordinating panel of patterned paper (looks a little like confetti) has been attached behind it secured to the rear of the outer frame of the sentiment, this ensures no glue is visible through the delicate vellum part. The assembled panel has been attached to the whole of the card front using strong double sided tape.

To finish Adhesive pearls in 2 sizes have been added around the sentiment panel.
