I thought I would have some fun with my Pink bead duo that I finally decided to order. I'm such an easy-sell. I loved what SU! had us do on our Make & Takes with the orange beads from the orange bead duo (we put them in the center of flowers and speaking of Convention - I'll finally post the 2nd group of our M&T's for those of you who asked soon!) so I bought two of the bead duos. Well, some sticky strip and Crystal Effects later, and this is the card I made. Sorry for how dark that Rose Red CS looks - it's not that dark IRL.
I used my new SU! Big Shot and one of the Sizzlets included in the Big Shot starter kit from SU! for several of the elements on this card. I die-cut the two little flowers and the chipboard (rather - the sheet from the inside of one of our DSP packages) that they're adhered to in about 20 seconds from the beginning of finding the parts needed to make them to turning them out of the Big Shot. I simply glued the DSP to the "chipboard" flowers the same size and tah-dah! I also used the Top Note Bigz Die to make the Whisper White portion of the card. I cut the shape in half and adhered it to my card.
After making the flowers I put some CE on the center of the small one and added some beads. I used my sticky strip to add beads to a strip on the card at the base of the Top Note on top of the piece of layered So Saffron and Rose Red CS. The patterned paper I used is the Georgia Peach DSP. I am really enjoying all of my new DSP's. SU! did an excellent job with all of the new DSP's - the variety is so vast that no matter your style you'll find some papers that you love. I love them ALL!!! Do you?!?! I hope you like this close-up.
