Irresistible Irises

Good evening All,

Just a quick post from me tonight as it's nearly Christmas !! yeah.     All little children should be tucked up in bed dreaming of Santa Claus, sleigh bells and Christmas stockings lol.   The one night in the year when they are willing to go to bed early !!

I would like to say welcome to my newest follower Eileen ,  thank you for following me and I hope you enjoy your visits and to my earlier followers,  thank you for your visits and your lovely comments, they make me a very happy bunny lol.     Well on to the card I am featuring in tonight' post.


Make a base card from silver mirror card and matt some black card onto this leaving a border of the silver showing.   Cut a piece of lavender card just slightly smaller than the black and lay the stencil over it.   Using cut n' dry foam, cover stencil design with Versamark.   Remove stencil and brush with silver mica powder.

Return the stencil to the card again and cover the small hearts only with the Lavender Sparkle Medium.   When dry matt the lavender card onto the black.

Stamp the irises onto some white card using Versamark and heat emboss with black embossing powder.   Colour the design with mica powders, using a paintbrush and water.

Stamp the irises a further three times, cut out the irises and 3D them using silicone glue.   Trim the whole image and fix to the  centre of the lavender card.   Add a bow to the top left of the card.

Well that's it folks, hope you like it.   I would just like to wish you and your families a Wonderful Christmas and a Happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.   Have a lovely time and I'll be back in a few days.

                                                          Love and best wishes to you all,

                                                                    Hugs  Jennifer xx
