Black and Gold...
Todays card is a filigree die cut delight (hopefully) I started this one by cutting four of the corner dies from Spellbinders Gold Elements one and wondered what to do with them! When layering them up I noticed how they created a negative space square when I placed them on top of each other like this, so that's what I did.
I layered two of the die cuts on each side, leaving a square in the middle, on to PMD Kraft card then double matted this onto black and kraft card.
The size of this one is an A4 sheet folded in half to create a landscape card. Next I cut one of the centre square elements from the same set, in matching Kraft, which I then double layered in the same colours on a hand cut square.
I decorated the centre and edges with a beige gem (part of my Chino Shop bargains) However the card still looked rather bland. I tried lots of different sentiments but couldn't get anything to work until I tried the gold ribbon and bow. I threaded the ribbon through the different layers and added a simple double bow on the top. I really liked the look of this card without a sentiment as I feel the simplicity says it all.
One of the post popular ranges of Cards we sell in the Card and Gift shop I work in is our blank range sometimes it's nice to send a card that you can just write in what you want. Enjoy...
