As yesterday was my day for the Creative Expressions DT Blog then I had to skip the Gemini week however it's back today. Today's card is stole! well not exactly stolen but I was lucky enough to to allowed to Hinder Julia Watts at CE Towers in a workshop today's card is based almost solely on one of the cared the lovely ladies made in the Workshop. The card has not appeared on Julia's blog as yet however click HERE to see what she has posted for us all today.
Next I turned the piece over, removed the other side of the sheet and covered the whole piece with Iced Snow. To make up the card I mounted this piece onto a larger may of the same coconut white card. I made the centre decoration using the new Camilla die open petals I cut 2 of three different sizes and made these into three separate flowers. I added these on the front with a piece of Creative Expressions white Tulle cut and tied to a bow style to the middle of the decorated panel.
To make the final card I embossed a larger mat of coconut white using the Honeycomb Haven A4 embossing folder and rubbed Pearl Moon gilding wax over the raised area. Once dry I polished the gilding wax with a dry baby wipe (another of Julia's tips) its really important to do this like polishing shoes the wax needs to be shin up!
This card does have a really different finish to Julia's however it is based solely on her design so I can claim no plaudits for the techniques, inspiration or finish of this card which I think would be perfect for and anniversary.
