C for Coveted use your most Coveted

Hello Paper crafters,
Todays post is all about my coveted paper collection. I LOVE PAPER! Especially my DCWV Immortal Love paper pack!  My sister Emily sent me this paper pack in 2011, because I don’t have a Joanna’s near my house. I was so excited to receive it!! Why you ask?? Well we had the intention of making this beautiful mini album. Elizabeth at 217 Creations   had so generously provided her gypsy cut files to all her followers. The album is a work of art! But so are my beautiful Immortal Love papers. So here I am in 2013…. I haven’t begun to make my mini album.
Todays Design Team post at the Alphabet Challenge Blog  COVETED- use your most coveted item DCWV Immortal Love
I took baby steps cutting up Immortal Love & created a card inspired by Twilight Mini Album. I used an 8 ½ by 11 black card stock and folded it in half. I cut the gate from Cricut cartridge Ornamental Iron & shadow & glued on to card. I fussy cut the base of the card to match the gate at middle of card. Images from Pixie Dust Studios, Breaking Dawn picture cut out from Uverse Guide (which came in at a perfect time!).Ribbon from an old stash I had to paint red & melted the edges down with my heat gun to create the puckered look .The little roses I bought on clearance after Valentines Day at Hobby Lobby. I cut and painted with acrylic paint, nothing like Elizabeth’s but inspired by her hard work!! Roses were small no Glimmer Glam or Glimmer Glaze, only my home made glitter spray made with rubbing alcohol and metallic Acrylic paint. I love how this card turned out! Baby steps I will eventually make the mini album. This card would be great to use as an invitation sometime this year for a Twilight Marathon weekend of crafting at my house.
