Firstly an apology no post yesterday, due ton an emergency I had to go into work yesterday (second job) so instead of crafting and eating Sunday Lunch I was serving it instead!
Back to Today, today's card is made for Jenifer Swannells from Krafty Keepsakes, click HERE to visit her blog. Jen was chosen at random by my boss this time so when I got in last night I made this card for her.
I like to make me Your Cards specifically for the person rather than just choose one I have already made. Now Jen has been struggling with her Craft Mojo recently so I thought something Light, Pink and with a new idea might help to kick start her craftiness (is that even a word)
This is a simple one die card in white and pink, the new idea is the centre piece which is satin 1 cm ribbon in Pink, which I have woven over the open aperture. The ends of each ribbon have been woven between each of the different layers I cut to make the aperture.
To make this one I started by cutting the largest label from Spellbinders labels 28 in the smallest piece of card. I then worked my way down the label sizes whilst increasing the size of the pieces of card and alternating the Pink and White. I added a silver layer, just to give some definition, between the pink and white.
The weaving is done after the layers have been stuck together, using foam tape, however I had to make sure that each layer was only stuck down at the corners to allow room for the ribbon.
A bow, and no pearls!, finishes this card. As usual if you email me on Lockers@live.co.uk with your address Jenifer I will post this creation to you.
