pink ovals

Happy Monday,

Todays card is a more complicated card using same dies as this post HERE.  This version is, I think, more dramatic and also bigger.  This version is made using simple white and pink cardstock which gives a different look to the chocolate and cream version I made a few weeks ago above.

The dies used are Spellbinders Gold ovals one and classic ovals small.  Matching Pink and white ribbon and some of Wendy's wonderful hatpins!

I started by folding a sheet of PMD white hammered cardstock in half then cut the layers at 1cm down on each.  I matted these on pink cardstock with the final layer having the largest oval cut from the centre.

Next I cut various layers in the ovals, lined them with pink and foam mounted them.  A simple
looking, time consuming card.

  8. Well John you never cease to amaze me with you gorgeous creations. These cards are beautiful and creative. I agree with Jenny the hat pins are easy to do, I use beads from old beads I have around.
