Oh well in for a penny in for a pound as they say where I originally come from (South Yorkshire if anyone was wondering!) Since I bought three new die sets I had better get the most out of them! lol
Today's card is made using the Umbria die set, again from the Italian collection however this is made in a rarely used for me green. I don't know why but this verdigris green just appealed to me when looking for a colour to showcase this die.
I started by letterpressing the Darice A4 embossing folder with sage green chalk ink then cutting the largest die from the set out from the centre to create the aperture.
Next I cut the largest die from the green card, i cut a circle from a sheet of cream card and mounted the green piece over the top. Then I cut the centre die, which doesn't have an edge so gives a beautiful filigree effect, from green and mounted this over a sheet of cream into which I had cut a smaller circle.
The final circle die was cut and stamped with congratulations circle stamp then mounted behind the final aperture. It is a little difficult to describe but this is a kind of tunnel card as each successively smaller die cut is mounted behind the larger one.
There are a few pearls and a little distress inking on the edges to give some definition.

Hopefully you can get the idea from the pictures of how this one is constructed...
