Crystal Effects Prized Peony


Crystal Effects Prized Peony

I always remember to bring out my Crystal Effects when making holiday cards but somehow it gets moved to the back of the draw for the rest of the year.  The picture doesn’t seem to do justice to the peony but covering it with a layer of Crystal Effects really makes the flower POP!!



Blushing Bride Card Base

4x5 ¼ Basic Gray

¼” Shimmer Gray Granite Ribbon

Best Plaid Builder Die in Whisper White

Prized Peony Bundle

Stampin’ Blends Light and Dark:

          Blushing Bride

          Granny Apple Green

Basic Gray Ink Pad

Everyday Label Punch

Timeless Label Punch


Stampin’ Dinensionals

Shimmery Crystal Effects



For Sentiment:     

1)    Stamp sentiment with basic gray ink on whisper white and punch with Everyday Label.

2)   Punch on scrap of blushing bride with timeless label and cut label in half.

3)   Adhere blushing bride halves to the back of sentiment label so that each half is sticking beyond the sides of the label.

4)   Add dimensionals to the back and set aside until ready to adhere to card

Card Base:

1)    Cut base 5 ½” x 8 ½” scoring long side at 4 ¼” fold at score line and burnish with bone folder

2)   Die cut thin Plaid Die on Whisper White and attach to Basic Gray.  This layer can then be added to your card base

3)   Stamp large peony on whisper white with basic gray ink. 

4)   Color with blends

6)   Attach to card base with dimensionals

7)   Attach sentiment

9)   Apply Shimmery Crystal effects to peonies.  You can use a small paint brush to spread the crystal effects evenly but be sure to use a brush that you don’t care if you can’t get it clean when done.
