I hope you all enjoyed the video yesterday, I'm writing this a couple of days early as I have 2 days of 8am till 11pm at work so no time to blog in sequence!
Today's card is made using the Sue Wilson Californian Background die and a very bright Ginger coloured card (steady Mrs Duck not That bright) I found the card in my stash and thought it would make a lovely large card offset with cream to calm the colour a little..
I stared by die cutting a square in plain cream PMD card stock with the die, this meant cutting the whole die first then extending the pattern to make a square. This does mean that part of the die is repositioned in the already cut sections.
Next I took a piece of the Ginger card which is thankfully A3 sized and die cut a square in the centre before hand cutting a slightly larger aperture in the die cut piece. I then foam mounted this onto the ginger card over the aperture and cut a wider border.
I mounted the scrap from the centre on more of the ginger card and left that for the inside. I then made a large card blank in white A· card stock (PMD Hammered) added a ginger layer and cut a square from the centre of the front before, finally, adding the frontispiece over this aperture.
To finish the card I threaded a matching strip of grosgrain ribbon through the different layers so that it passes over and under different layers. The flowers from spellbinders bitty blossom die, were inked in a matching chalk ink along with some spellbinders foliage and a couple of loops of ribbon.
The sentiment strip is an old die double cut in ginger and white and added with a couple of hatpins. The centre square was then foam mounted to the back of the card.
Really a simple monochromatic card but with plenty of interest.
