A variation on a theme for today's card and a different version of the matching of the Olivia frames and tags die with the Antlia Gemini die.
I started by cutting the detail and edge die form the Gemini into two ends of a piece of coconut white foundation card trimmed down to 51/4". I then used just the edge die and cut 2 piece of wisteria card to match the edges and mounted the white detail over this.
Next I used the other edge die from the Gemini die to cut a panel of wisteria card ( again cut to 51/4" ) to match the 2 edges of the Gemini cut in white. I embossed this panel wit the illusion A4 embossing folder before foam mounting this over the space as shown.
I then cut the outline and detail die in the Olivia frame from more coconut white and backed this with wisteria studding it with white 5mm stick on pearls. I cut the spring foliage in white twice and cut each of the flowers dies in the spring foliage set in wisteria and lilac. I arranged the foliage as shown then shaped the flowers adding them on the leaves with a 3mm white stick on pearl as the centre. I arranged the frame on top and finished with a layer of white again embossed with the illusion folder.
A few layers of white, wisteria and lilac to finish and a complex and textured card which is relatively simple to produce is complete.
