Easter Blossoms Faux Cameo
Soft Suede classic ink
White, Pink Pirouette and Soft Suede paper
Border punch and corner punch
Embossing folders (optional)
medium SU pearls (3)
small flower punch
larger 3-flower punch
Stamp the image on a sheet of acetate with the StayzOn and cut out very close to image. Glue to an oval cutout of Soft Suede and then to a larger oval of embossed white. Sponge the edges of the white oval slightly with Soft Suede ink.
Stamp the branches in Soft Suede ink on a piece of Pink Pirouette and affix the ovals as shown. Layer this on a piece of white that has the border punched all around and then on a piece of Soft Suede. Add ribbon and put entire thing on the card front.
Go over the acetate sheet with Crystal Effects.
To make the 3 small flowers at the edge of the frame, I embossed the surface of a scrap of Pink Pirouette with Iridescent Ice embossing powder and punched them out. I punched 3 larger petaled flowers with the larger flower punch from a piece of white embossed paper and added the pearls to the center.
