Celtic Accents and Motifs ...

Hi Everybody,

The Celtic Accents and Motifs have been used on this red and white card to create two apertures on one of the layered panels.

The base card is just a folded A4 card with one each of the red and white layers ..... with the white layer embossed with a Dotty A4 folder.

A Celtic shape has been added in each corner.

I created  two apertures and embossed the card, then layered this onto a contrasting colour so that it showed  through.

Add matching ribbon around the panel.

Layer this onto the card front with foam pads and add a pearls to the bow to hide the knot.

I have  heat embossed the sentiment, inked through the die with the card still in place and raised it up with foam pads to the card front.

Might be good in a Pastel colour too 

More tomorrow...

Hugs xx

  1. Lovely design Christina but Celtic designs don't 'float my boat'. I must say though that I think this design would look striking in black and white. Pat x

  7. Really pretty, and fun! Love the colors, especially since red is one of my favorites. Funny, but I don't use a lot of red in my cards, though! BethAnn M.
