PIAO- Pile it all on.

OK, so I'm not sure about this. Not my usual style, not even my usual style of not my usual style, if you catch my drift.

It's an aperture card- lots of paper layers, I used nesties, a MS border punch, distress inked the edges, heat embossed the cake, added pearls, threaded ribbon and generally piled it all on!

This is the inside image, slightly popped up with 3D foam. The swirls are stamped with Versamark and swooshed with Perfect Pearls in blush.

It's a commissioned card, so I hope I've fulfilled the brief I was given, and truth be told I quite enjoyed doing it all, I'm just not sure I like the finished card.......

I'm entering this into the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp- Anything goes
Totally Gorjuss- Pink and green
Craft Room challenge- Emboss it


  1. Yeah, but when I PIAO, it looks like a pile of...well, a pile! This is great, love the use of aperture.

  2. Wow Lisa this is gorgeous. The scalloped cut out with the image showing through looks fantastic.
