Metallic Hello Card - Karen McKibbin

Hi again everyone!  I've got a bright and shiny card for you today.
Close up of the sentiment and flowers
 Supplies Used: Vintage Hello Layered Metal Cutting Die 30168, Zara Flower Metal Cutting Die 21087, Autumn Dance 12x12 Paper Collection 25345 - Foil. Other Supplies: Gold Mirror card, flower centres, gold embossing powder
This is an A2 sized card so 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" tall.  I started by cutting the Autumn Dance foiled background paper to fit my card front.  I then cut the Hello sentiment from the gold mirror card and adhered it to the centre of the card front.  I also diecut the sentiment from white cardstock 2 more times and then used a die cut inlay technique to glue these white pieces into the gold diecut layer.  This is a really beautiful sentiment, and cuts all the scrolls and leaves, as well as having an outline die.  So you could choose to just die cut this into your card front or have it mounted as I have done here.  
I cut several of the Zara flowers from white cardstock and shaped them using a ball stylus on an old computer mat.  I glued several of them together to make the 3 large flowers.  I used a VersaMark pen just on the tips of the petals and then added the gold embossing powder and heat set it.  Then I poked a hole into the centre of the flowers, and threaded the flower centres through. I used a hot glue gun to glue these in place at the back of the flower.  I also added a little Copic marker to the base of the flower centre as I felt the flowers needed a little more of the pink.  Finally,  I glued the flowers to the card front with my hot glue gun.  
Thank you for stopping by today and I hope I've given you a little inspiration!
