For todays card I am using some old and new dies together and creating a really pretty design with only card elements on it. I like to add lace and flowers to my creations and with these dies I can add both and it doesnt cost the earth.
And with dies I can re create the whole look time after time just altering the colours in the card or the inks I use.
- S6-001 5x7 Matting Basics A
- S4-710 Two Way Street
- SEL-008 Medallion embossing folder
- S4-708 Graceful Floral Lattice
- S5-272 Nouveau Florals
- S4-564 Simply Said Phrases
- PL-001 Platinum Machine
- Cream/Pink card from Papermill Direct
- Glossy Accents
- Abandoned Coral and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks
With die #7 from the matting basics cut two pieces in cream and create a hinged card
Hand cut a slightly smaller layer in pink to leave a narrow border around the edge
Hand cut another slightly smaller layer in cream and emboss this in the folder
Glue the two hand cut layers together
Cut one layer in cream and hand cut a layer in pink to fit beneath the die cut
Glue these two together just around the edges then add foam tape at the back
Select the florals that you wish to use and cut them in cream
Ink through the die before you remove the card. Abandoned Coral for the flowers and Mowed Lawn for the leaves
Cut one strip of the Graceful Floral Lace and use small foam pads in strategic places to the back of the die cut so that they cannot be seen from the front
(I love this die and it looks really pretty if you ink through it before removing the card)
Add the Two Way Street panel to the embossed layers and wrap the lace strip around them all.
Add small foam pads to the florals that you cut and arrange them and the leaves onto your card as you like.
Cut the sentiment of your choice form the Phrases several times and glue them together for strength.
Add to the card front as you like .
I then added Glossy Accents and Glitter to my die cuts
Vary the florals, sentiments, arrangement and the colours for another look to your card
More tomorrow ...
