8 x 8 piece of card
I then made 2 pieces of clear acetate to make a gate fold centre with it.
I used some really strong clear tape to stick it to the white card and the purple card.
I then stuck the purple pearlescent card onto the the white card base.
Next i cut a piece of the black embossed card slightly smaller than the purple card,
before i stuck this down i added a strip of silver ribbon down the sides & added the charm on a smaller piece of silver ribbon.
You could if you wanted make a little purple envelope to put underneath it with a silver chain
so the recipient could take the charm off and wear it.
Stick this inside the card leaving a purple edge around all four sides.
Now the fun bit!!! cut a piece of purple card just that little bit bigger of your topper,
i used foam pads on the topper but just before sticking it to the purple card i pierced two
holes on either side of the image and threaded a lilac flower through and left the other end
sticking out of it (made to look if it had a rose through it teeth!!)
I then stuck it half way down the acetate and only on the left had side,
i stuck the sentiment also on the left hand side just underneath it.
Now to the finishing touches!! as you can see i have put lilac gems around the topper, black pearls in the corners & added the gems in a strip down each side.
I just couldn't resist giving it a black velvet tie !!!
You could do this for any occasion just by changing your colours, what a great card
for a goth valentines day card.
All items are from the Gothic Grunge range and the card also from Lelli-Bot Crafts
