Rain stops Play!
Well today was supposed to be my second video tutorial however due to circumstances beyond Wendy and my control this wont go live until Thursday! Hence rain stopped play...
Instead today I thought I would show this card instead. This is a simple top fold hinged card made with a cardstock from My Minds Eye with plain cardstock cut with my new Spellbinders Scalloped Borders one die I bought from the local craft shop.
I started by cutting the border first then inked whilst in the die using dusty concord distress ink. This was teamed up with the paper cut in two layers and edged in cream.
The bow on top is made witrh last weeks video tutorial and is finished with a pearl button and two hatpins courtesy of Wendy
The centre element is made using a double layer of labels four stamped with Brilliance ink in twilight which is a lovely opalescent ink in three colours. The stamps are from waltzing mouse country labels four stamped in the ink and coloured in the die.
The flourishes are cut using the main element from Spellbinders Iron tags and accents which again I inked in the die this time using the brilliance apd so that the colours mix.
A simple styled card, with a simp,le message,
