Shimmer of Flight

Shimmer of Flight is a very new card that I have made using some wrapping paper that I bought just the other day! I sawthis on a spur of the moment and thought to myself,"Mmm! I can see this well used on cards!".
I covered my 14x14cm square card with the patterned paper cut on my paper trimmer. Then I cut out and adhered some gold translutant paper and punched a flower out of it. Once done so, I adgered this to the card using stcky foam pads. I then stitched around this centre design leaving a 2.5cm gap all the way round, using silver metallic thread and as I went along threaded on small pearly beads, white. Last touches was the floer sequins on each corner of the gold paper and glued these on using uhu and placed a bead on top of each one.
i was mot happy with the results that now I am keen to design and make more cards using this wrapping paper design.
