After yesterdays flower fest and pastel (for me) colours I thought today should be a classic John card in Beige and black. When I was shopping in the U.K. I bought a set of four cameo's form the Works for £1 I wanted to make a card that would show off this wonderful and above all cheap, embellishment.
Now my go to die is still Spellbinder Gold elements one, sorry, however I felt that this was a beautiful way to make a classic card. I die cut the corner die twice in cream PMD cardstock and cut out a large square 2cm all round the die cut. I foam mounted this (I love mounting different layers they can add such interest into a simple card) onto black card the foam mounted the whole thing on cream then black.
Next I mounted the whole thing onto a hand made square card (I Know, I know everything I am making at the moment is a square) with PMD Kraft cardstock, A4 folded in half. The banner is stamped with a border stamp from the Do'crafts Vintage Notes set onto the same card which I mounted in black, pennant cut the ends and then 'waved' across the middle.
Finally I added the cameo in the middle Hopefully this card makes the cameo look more expensive than it is!
