One of the major benefits of living next door to a crafter is the ability to borrow, todays card is made with a die I borrowed form Wendy next door. Now she purchased this die when I was with her in the local craft shop however she spotted it first denying me the chance to purchase, since then I had forgotten it however when we again went to our local craft shop last week I remembered it and asked to borrow it. This card is made using the borrowed die and some Core´dinations cardstock I bought whilst I was there.
I started by cutting, embossing and sanding the central panel using the aforementioned Sizzix iron gate die. I mounted this onto a sheet of acetate and hand cut a cream frame so that the central piece appeared to be floating.
The sentiment panel is cut using Spellbinders fancy tags one which again I cut, embossed and sanded however I layered these in the centre usingf foam tape for dimension. I managed to find a matching ribbon in my burgeoning collection and tied this down the side with a double bow (hand tied Mrs Duck!!) This was finished with a Hobbycutz lasercut butterfly and the everpresent pearl.
Not my usual Colours but I actually like it, me Peach what has 2014 come to!!
