This is one of those cards that looked much nicer in real life, I'm sure you know the type I mean, lol. The cream background paper has a lovely pearl sheen to it. The "lady" is black velvet... and the black filigree and silver backing the ladies dress up is glittery, the sentiment is too.
The trellis die and the lady die I used were all bought from AliExpress. The rhinestone trim is from my stash, one of my many "treasures" brought back from Malaysia by my Mum, many happy moons ago
I finished the inside of the card much the same as the outside, the flower dies are MFT Plentiful Petals and the leaves are Sue Wilson Faux Quilled Leaves
Here's a bit of a closeup of the velvet lady.... that velvet paper is all gone now, I only had a scrap and another pic showing the glittery goodness of the black glitter paper
I added a foam dot and a piece of Card Candi (I have so MUCH of this stuff, lol) to the centre of the flower to finish it off.
That's it for today's card.
As You Like It has the theme: What is Your Favourite CAS or FAFF, and why... I love "fully loaded" cards, but I just struggle to achieve the look myself. I like SOME embellies, so this card represents "my" favourite... tending to the CAS, but not exactly CAS
