Peony background with Auckland die

Today’s post is a lot about stamping and a little die cutting. I took an 8 x 8 scalloped card and stamped the Filigree Peony stamp (by John Lockwood) in Brilliance copper ink all around the outside. I used the stamp twice before reinking it giving me the faded look with some of them.

Handmade card made with Auckland dies by Sue Wilson

 

I used the Ravello striplet die which I cut 4 times around a piece of pearlised card to form a square backgrounds and backed this with a copper card cut with the double pierced square dies to leave a small border. I stamped the Tuileries Frame Stamp in perfect medium and embossed it with copper embossing powder. I cut it out with the Auckland die (outside and centre) and trimmed around the stamped part in the centre. I used the decorative centre from the die in the copper card.

I finished the card off with a few gems coloured with copies to match with the card colours.
