Good Morning Crafty Friends,
Firstly thanx for your comments yesterday I certainly split opinions on this one! I can see now why I didn't post it, sorry the link didn't work click HERE to see the card I actually posted! (Honest it works this time!) For Maggie P, and anyone else who asked, when I say PMD card I am referring to Paper Mill Direct. I sent a plee out amongst my readers and followers a few months ago for a supplier of card that would send to me here in Spain for a reasonable cost and PMD was the clear winner.
This is a quite simple card to make, firstly I ran a sheet of milk chocolate coloured card and ran the whole sheet through a Darice Embossing folder and gently rubbed Creative Expressions Pearl Moon Gilding wax over the raised sections. This was folded into an A4 Card and I cut three of the centre panel dies from Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles to create 3 windows or apertures through to the inside back. The die cuts from these apertures were then placed on the inside back of the card on top of a piece of rich brown card. The picture shows what I mean here, hopefully!
To finish the front I simply added a strip of cream ribbon and a simple bow behind which I tucked 2 die cuts from the Joanna Sheen Signature range. The apertures had acetate placed behind them to give a finished look.
To complete the inside I stamped, using versamark and gold embossing powder, the word friend from Do'crafts Love Letters. This was foam mounted and a further Ivy Flourish tucked behind and on top.
I have called this blog post The power of Blog as this card is intended for a friend I have made through my blogging, someone who is enthusiastic, honest, critical and above all kind!
