Just For You...with Papermilldirect

Hello I'm back again with one of the two designs I had fun creating with this week's Special Offer Tangerine Card from Papermilldirect.  This card has been created using a manual die-cutter (my old trusty Big Shot) and a selection of dies.  (please see other post for a design using the Cricut Explore)
Using just 3 colours I created this little shaped standing card.  Tonic dies were used to cut the fancy ‘loopy lace’ front panel from this week’s special offer ‘Tangerine’ cardstock, I cut a backing panel and card back from PMD Ivory smooth cardstock and assembled a little card as follows. 
Taking one of the Ivory card shapes I scored and folded the back before joining to the other Ivory shape to form a little standing card, using a strip of double sided tape and a little cosmic shimmer glue just above the score line.  The tangerine ‘Loopy Lace’ panel was attached to the front using 3D foam pads in the centre only, to create depth.

I then cut a smaller ‘Loopy Lace’ panel set reversing the colours, so an Ivory panel was on top.  I stamped a sentiment in the centre of the panel  ( I used ‘Just For You’ from the Belle & Boo stamp set) stamping in an orange toned ink and then sprinkling with clear embossing powder before embossing with an heat gun.   Then mounted the sentiment panel on top of its base mat of Tangerine card using 3D foam pads and gluing the completed sentiment panel to the base card using Cosmic Shimmer glue.
The flowers were die cut from Ivory Smooth card and the leaves from Spring Green card using Sue Wilson ‘Faux Quilled Blooms’ die set. The layered butterfly was also die cut from Ivory smooth card using a Sizzix butterfly die set.
Detail Sparkle in ‘White Shimmer’ was applied to the flowers and also to the top layer of the butterfly.  When dry the flowers and leaves were shaped and added to the card front at right hand side using 3D foam pads, topping each with a faux gem in pale green or pale orange.  The butterfly was assembled with 3 small orange faux gems along the body, wings shaped and then it was glued to the card front using Cosmic Shimmer Glue.
