Gloria  -  YOU ARE HERE! 

Here is the card I created for you.


For my card base I used Core'dinations Darks Card Set. The color is called Nightfall. I then layered Bordeaux from the Graphic45 Signature Series paper pack, and on top of that, I layered a Core Impressions cardstock called Aunt Grace from the Jenni Bowlin Everyday Collection. I sanded all of the cardstock for a distressed look.


I created the flower detail by cutting shapes with the Spellbinders™ die templates and the Grand Calibur® Die Cutting Machine. The birdcage is cut from black cardstock using the S5-033 Bird Sanctuary die template. I stenciled the shape with gray chalk ink. I cut the flower shapes from Core'dinations Graphic45 Bordeaux cardstock, and sanded the petals. I used S5-049 Carnation Creations and S5-067 Anemone Flower Topper to create the flowers. I used Antique Moss cardstock and S4-328 Foliage die template to create the leaves.


I created an extra flower for the inside of the card.


I stamped the image (Waltzing Mouse) onto white paper, then distressed with purple ink, and cut the shapes with S4-190 Labels Four and S4-309 Labels Four Small templates.

I hope you have fun on the hop this week! Make sure to check to see what the Spellbinders and Core'dinations teams are up to!
