One Die ... Two Ideas

Hi Everybody,

Continuing with the theme of Hinged Cards  ...

 I have again used  5 x 7  Matting Basics for the base to the first card.

These produce a good sized card that will fit into a standard envelope ...  if you keep the embellishments reasonably flat.

The large double bow to this card is Organza and I have a large beaded pearl Dazzler to add to the centre.

The "Bling" matches the Fancy Tags Three and is...  as always ... from Want2Scrap

The same tag has been used on both cards just the orientation of it changed.

If you look closely at these cards you will see that I have used the same die in two different ways.

The blue card has the Timeless Rectangles added,  to the three layers of the base card,  with foam pads.

But the pink card has used the die to create a hinged filigree card
and this will be videoed this weekend and added to the pages of the website.

The layering for the pink card has used the smaller A2 Curved Matting Basics A and B and the pink spotty layer is from Radiant Rectangles.

The large satin bow has been double tied and a pink Dazzler placed over the knot.

The sentiments for both cards are from Lili of the Valley  and the round one has been cut with Lacey Circles

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

    1. Yes - setting a deadline for collecting your wonderful gifts and having a redraw if they are not collected is very fair to others who have also entered into the draw.
      Thank you for your wonderful cards
