Good Morning Everyone,
A brighter day is forecast for Nottingham, I hope the weatherman is right.
Thank you all so much for your very kind comments and messages on my previous post.
Today's card is one I made for The Trade Show at the N.E.C. I would like to share it with you so you can see how stunning Phill's New Dies are.
Although this is an A4 card, it can be adapted for smaller cards.
All the products I used to create this card are available of Phill's Website:-
This is what I used:-
Burgundy Card Stock
Cream Card Stock
Dies by Phill Martin - 'From The Heart' Collection
Sue Wilson Noble Dies - Ornate Pierced Rectangle
Sue Wilson Spanish Collection - Corner Border & Tag
Sue Wilson Rambling Blossom Embossing Folder
Cosmic Shimmer Acrylic Glue
Creative Expressions Pearl Strips
Glitter Jewels - Diamond Snow
I started by making a 'card front'
Burgundy Card cut to 11.75 x 8.25
Cream Card cut to 11.5 x 8
Burgundy card cut to 11 x 7.75
I then layered these together flat.
Next I cut a piece of Cream Card 10.75 x 7.5 and Embossed it using the Rambling Blossom Embossing Folder, and attached flat.
Using Burgundy Card I cut 2 border dies out and attached these flat lining them up with the smallest layer of burgundy card.
Using the largest of the rectangle dies I cut this out using Burgundy Card and then cut the patterned one out in cream and mounted it onto burgundy card before attaching both of these to the card using pads to give dimension.
I then cut out the 'Happy Birthday To You' in both Cream and Burgundy Card and glued them together (staggered) to give the 'shadow effect'
I then attached the sentiment to the card using pads.
Next I cut the butterfly out using a small scrap of burgundy card, and attached to the card.
Finishing Touches :-
I added pearl strips to the edges of the borders. Then on the outer edge of the sentiment die I added Diamond Snow Glitter Jewels.
The butterfly I edged the tip of the wings with diamond snow and glossy accents to centre of the wings.
Finally I added glossy accents to the Hearts of the Sentiment.
The card front is now ready to attach to an A4 card blank.
