Santorini Bling

Seems like we are doing a Grand Tour all of our own here, earlier this week we were in Tuscany, today, Santorini beckons. I have really mixed this card with old and new dies. So we have the delicate Santorini die as the centre piece, Coconut White backed by Baby Pink. 

I have used mounting cushion in a double thickness to give a good depth before I popped the centrepiece through the centre and stuck this directly onto the base card. The sentiment is from the Pierced Flags stamp set, perfectly matching the Pierced Flag smallest die. The flower is the Perfect Peony Complete Petals die set stamped with Shaded Peony stamp set. The gorgeous leaves are from the brand new Christmas Rose die set, I am so impressed with those leaves, the detail is superb.

Just goes to show that just because its called Christmas Rose, it can be used for any occasion.

Finally, I used the Petite Mini Striplet Jubilee on the bottom directly onto the base layer and then cut down the middle. Behind the channel that this makes I have added a piece of Baby Pink card, covered in Iced Snow. Still not satified with the amount of bling that the Iced Snow gives I added some of the lovely Pearl and Diamente embellishments all along the centre of the channel, in the corners and even in the flower centre. A girls got to have a bit of bling!
