Yesterdays post went out, for some unfathomable reason, at lunchtime so I apologise to those who like me are early risers and like to check blogs first thing! If you did miss yesterdays post there is one if you scroll down after this one!
Back to Monday and I have a three fold screen card for you today, most of my lovely blog family will know that I do like things in rows and seem to have a thing for threes! I was talking to an American friend the other day who pointed to that we, the British crafting fraternity, seem to be heavily into things in threes, especially me and hatpins!
I started by die cutting the centre 2 dies into the main body of the card using Sue Wilson's Austrian Salzburg set three times equally across a sheet of coconut white card. I took 1 cm off the top and side of the A4 sheet so that I could have a border all the way around when finished and simply measured and folded the card first to ensure that the three cuts lined up.
Next I cut three of the largest ovals form the set using more card covered in an A4 double sided adhesive sheet and 3 of the smallest centre dies and gilded all six pieces. The three largest cuts were placed behind the filigree sections with the smallest ovals foam mounted in the centre s on the front.
The reminder is relatively simple with the left leaning die from petite vinery cut in vintage silver foundation card added to the fronts and then decorated with ivory pearl PVA glue dots. The border across the top and bottom which doesn't show well on the photo's is made with thin double sided adhesive tape onto which I have added gunmetal polished silk glitter, just to add little bit more sparkle and texture.
I left this card without a sentiment as I wasn't sure what occasion this would be suitable for, any suggestions?
