Just Believe....

...is such a great stamp set & I find myself going to it constantly that I sometimes have to stop & grab another.

It is so long since I created a card for a challenge that I thought I would try the challenge over at Stampin' Up! Only.  This site is where you have to use SU! products only on your creations.  This week the challenge is to use a Technique that you use infrequently.  I don't do nearly enough techniques on my cards, so this is the perfect opportunity to try!

Knowing what I had to create on my card, I then went in search of a sketch.  What better place to start than Mary Jo's.  This is the first of her sketches for the year.

For my card I choose the Technique - Faux Silk

Measurements -
Base Card - Calyspo Coral - 11 5/8" x 4 1/8" or 30cm x 10.5cm - Scored & Folded in the middle
Layer 1 - Whisper White - 5 5/8" x 4" or 14.5cm x 10cm
Layer 2 - DSP - 5 1/2" x 3 7/8" or 14cm x 9.5cm
Layer 3 x 2 - Calyspo Coral - 3 1/2" x 2" or 9cm x 5cm
Layer 4 x 2 - Whisper White - 3 3/8" x 1 7/8" or 8.5cm x 4.5cm
Layer 5 - Calyspo Coral - 5 3/4" x 3/4" or 14.5cm x 2cm
Layer 6 - Whisper White - 5 5/8" x 5/8" or 14cm x 1.5cm

I adhered the DSP to the piece of Whisper White Cardstock & then to the Base Card - Calyspo Coral using Snail Adhesive.

Envelope & Inside...
After stamping my image onto Tissue Paper using Pear Pizzazz Ink, let dry & scrunched the tissue,  adhered it to a piece of Whisper White Cardstock using Anywhere Glue.  I adhered this piece to the 2 pieces of Calyspo Coral Cardstock before adhering to the Base Card.

I stamped my sentiment onto the piece of Whisper White Cardstock using Pear Pizzazz Ink and adhered to the long piece of Calyspo Coral prior to adhering to the card. 

I punched 3 flowers in Calyspo Coral Cardstock using the Boho Punch & adhered to the card.  Pearls were applied to the centre as well as to some of the images.

I tied a bow & adhered to the card.
