Something New...Not Different
Due to camera issues I'm not able to post different Saturday today hopefully this week will be something different Sunday!
Todays card is made with the die I bought on my trip to our local craft shop with wendy a couple of weeks ago. As usual I cut one of these then put it away for another day. However this time it quickly came back out.
The die is a new window die from Tonic, here I have married it with a spellbinders circle die that fits the centre panel perfectly. The die comes in two pieces, the trellis and then the outline, this allowed me to cut two of the main elements then cut the right sized window from the card blank.
Once the window was cut I decorated two of the main trellis die cuts with pearls and mounted them on top of each other, using foam pads, however I rotated them so that a more complex pattern emerged. Its easier to see the pattern created on this picture.
The sentiment is stamped onto acetate, stamp from Indigblu, so that it floats in the centre panel. I backed this with one of the centre circles behind (as it was difficult to read on the purple. I added a a sheet of royal purple onto the rear of the card as the deep colour makes the white shine.
Simple but effective,
