Zva Creative June DT Blog Hop!

Hello friends! Zva Creative and our talented Design Team welcome you to our June blog hop!  We are very excited to kick off another blog hop and to have you join us today.
The hop begins at Zva Creative’s blog! Be sure head on over to check it out! You will also find a complete list of all the participating blogs there (in case there is a glitch along the way). 
As you know, Zva offers many beautiful color groupings for pearls, flowers and crystals.  If you like what you see along the hop you can find a list of stores and online retailers that sell Zva HERE.


Today, the designers were asked to use their favorite color/product.  Zva Creative has so many beautiful choices, but I have to say, I'm a pearl girl.  I love vintage things, and any kind of pearl always adds that special something.  As far as a favorite product - I just can't choose - but since I make lots of cards, I do appreciate that Zva has so many flourishes that are the perfect size for cardmakers.


So here is how I created my card.

1. Cut a card base 5" x 7" using the Natural cardstock.
2.   Cut a piece of the Beach cardstock 1/4" smaller and emboss using the M-Bossabilities folder.  Ink over the raised areas with Desert Sand ink.
3.  Cut a piece of cardstock in Sage 1 1/2" x 4 3/4".  Adhere satin ribbon to the middle.
3.  Line the edges of the last piece using the pearl strips.
4.  Die cut a border using the Moroccan Accents and adhere to the back of the ribboned panel. Adhere to the card.
5.  Stamp the decorative label using watermark ink and heat emboss with clear powder. Cut out the label.
6.  Stamp the sentiment with Chocolate ink. Use foam adhesives to apply to the card as shown.
7.  Die cut flowers, mist with Sandcastle Colorations and shape by pleating while damp.  Assemble the flower, add a large pearl for the center.
8.  Cut strips of ribbon with fish tail ends, and glue to the back of the flower.  Adhere the flower to the card.
9.  Cut the decorative flourishes and tuck behind the flower.
10. Finish with a corner pearl flourish.
