Rose Corset Card by Sue K

Hi Everyone, it is Sue here, Evelyn is out of action due to a nasty dose of the flu, unfortunately  Winter is all about colds and flu's, but it seems that the one going around is particularly nasty.
We hope Evelyn is back up and running really soon!
Today I am sharing a new card with you, I hope you enjoy it.

Stamp the Rose Corset onto Xpress it Blending cardstock, Colour with Copic Markers
  • YR00, YR02, YR04
  • Y21, Y26, YR21, YR23, YR24
  • BG93, G94 
Cut out the corset.  Colour all the white around the swirls at the bottom with E41 and E42, colour the white around the edge of the image with E41, this will allow the image to blend in with the backing papers.
Cut the dotted paper from the MME Sunshine pad to 140mm x 140mm.
Find the piece in the pad with the banner on the bottom right hand side.
starting from the right, cut 72mm wide strip, stop cutting at the banner, cut around the banner with scissors, cut to 140mm in length.
cut a strip for the left side 25mm x 140mm, layer onto a strip of the hounds tooth pattern on the reverse.
Using the Fleur de Lis border, cut a strip from the dark brown patterned paper, layer with the thin strip.
Cut  Black cardstock 25mm x 140mm and 72mm x 140mm, attach to the reverse of the patterned papers, this will provide support when popped up.
Cut a 140mm x 140mm card base from the black cardstock.
attach the dotted paper with double sided tape to the card base.
Attach the 2 strips with double sided foam tape, attach the Corset with a double layer of foam tape in the centre and single layers on the edges where it touches the side pieces.
Cut a flourish from dark brown paper and olive branches from the bluish spotted papers, attach these carefully to the card with glue and foam tape.  I have cut up the flourish and added it to both sides of the corset.
Colour some 1.5mm and 2mm rhinestones with YR24, attach the 1.5mm ones to the corset and the 2mm ones randomly around the flourish.
Cut out the 'Adore' label, layer onto a Label 18, stick the 2 together with double sided tape and to the card with foam tape.
Add Gold spica to the corset stitched strips and clear to the roses and leaves.
