Filigree Circles

Happy Wednesday,

This card is, amazingly, made with the exact same die set as I used for yesterdays card and even I have to admit it looks so different.  I do find that one of the pleasures of die cutting is that dies can be used for so many different cards and can be made to look so unique!

Today's card is made as a trifold filigree card with the die cut three times twice with a hinge which means that there are two folds in this card.  I am finding it very hard to describe the workings of this one and, once again, I am hoping that the photos will help.




Each of the three panels in this card is decorated in a different way however I have only used the die set to make this.  I simply die cut additional pieces in coredinations cardstock in a deep violet and added them in front and behind the layers.








The interesting element of this card is the sentiment tag, this was made using the die set.  I cut a strip of cream card then used the corner of the largest die on each end making the matching tag.  I simply stamped this and foam mounted it onto the top of the front





Ingredients:
Sue Wilson Umbria Die Set
CReam smooth PMD cardstock
Core'dinations cardstock
Pearls, Tulle & Hatpins.
Crafters Companion Sentimentals stamp

I really hope you get the idea of this one, If needed I will shoot a video tutorial on this just let me know!

Enjoy...

  2. I so love these filigree cards John and no, I wouldn't have thought it was the same die as yesterday. The card is so pretty and very delicate looking. I know you haven't got much time at the moment but when you can fit in a tut would be great.
    See you later.

  5. Hi John. Playing catch up so want to say that I loved yesterdays card. I don't use much green as the main colour in my cards either but this is great. Love the depth you get from making cards this way.
    Todays card looks so different, really pretty and delicate. You wouldn't know they are the same dies as yesterdays. (More thanks to Sue for such brilliant dies) I love this type of card but I always struggle to get the hinge right, I do wish I could solve the problem. Any hints or tips? Have a good day. Take care.

  9. Beautiful effect Can't quite work out folds (I am looking at this on my tiny iPod and the eye/brain is not making the connection!) So a tutorial would be good You'd have really laughed at the mess I made yesterday! I was trying your embossing patchwork technique I my stupidity. I used a wet glue to line the "patches" up and in my eagerness to emboss them didn't wait long enough for glue to dry So glue oozed out from every angle and the "patches" slipped Hee hee! Lesson learned! Will try and send piccie because I think I rescued it too!

  18. Can't believe it's the same die! What a different look - stunning. I have one of the Italian sets - not this one - but I can see I'll be putting it on my wish list.
    Best wishes, Anne O

  20. Hi John I am not going to comment on this card tonight?
    Slow Down ,of course you are having problems,trying to explain the process.
    You are packing up your Spanish Home,moving back to the U.k.,leaving Mom,and friends,if you do not relax you are going to snap .
    Do not even think of doing a video.
    I am worried about you,

  21. I love this card. But it's not Umbria die, it's Tuscany. I've been looking for the Umbria die to do this card, and found out this isn't it. As I finally found out, it's Tuscany :)
