I hope you all had a lovely weekend it's back to Monday I'm afraid ! I thought it would be fun this week, Monday to Friday at least, to make a card challenge for myself. I love the new Gemini dies form Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions and thought it would be fun to make a card for each day this week using one of the five from the new range each day. I love these dies as they are beautiful designs that can make loads of different looks simply by altering the dies used form each set.
The gemini range has a filigree or detailed centre panel then a different, separate, cutting edge for each side meaning that you can create 6 different borders or shaped edge for the edge of your cards from each set.
Mondays offering is Lyra which I have used on this card as a matted layer to highlight the centre piece. I cut a piece of Rich Plum foundation card using the centre panel and the border edge, embossed it and simply cut the piece to match a square 18cm x 18cm that I cut in Milk card and embossed using the Creative Expression A4 rambling blooms embossing folder. This gives a lovely juxtaposition between the colours and textures.
The centre panel is made using the new New York Collection Union Square die set. I simply cut each of the dies in the set in Rich Plum and again in Milk and, alternating the colours, foam mounted them. A simple CE sentiment in the middle and a striking monochrome card appears.
