A different Technique...
As I'm still on the show run I'm really sorry but there isn't a something different than a card this week, for my new followers I try to present a project every Saturday that is something different from just a card. However with the twists and turns my crafting life has taken in the last 3 months I seem to be short on time for some projects at the moment!
Instead today I am showing a card from the shows I did with Sue Wilson Last week with a twist that I didn't get to explain on air, in the hopes that you like it too!
The technique I mean is used in the centre of this card, although it is subtle it does make an impact close up!
What I am waffling on about is the centre panel of the card, cut with the Austrian Collection Salzburg die. What I have done is to take a piece of 5mm ribbon and thread it, alternately, through the die cut. I repeated this around the shape so that a complex woven pattern appears (I really hope you can see what I mean)
This adds another layer and texture to what could be a plain card. The remainder is simply layered in the soft colours using the remaining dies in the set. The background is embossed using the Creative Expressions Pinpoint Checkerboard A4 embossing folder.
