Gold Creative Wednesday...
Its a new month which means its a new selection of designs form the Design Team over at Creative Expressions and this month its Lady's Month. What I mean is that we are working with the wonderful Sassy Lady singles stamps. Today I have used the set called mistakes and have stamped in Gilding flakes. I have teamed it with the brand new Noble die set form Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions from which I have cut a hinged card meaning that this entire card is made using one die set and one stamp set.
The noble dies are perfect for making a smaller card as the finished card comes out as just smaller than A5.
I started by stamping the image by applying Flake and Glitter glue, using cut n dry foam, to my stamp. I then stamped the image onto a piece of coconut white card then I immediately cleaned my stamp using a grime boss. Don't worry about the stamped image it will stay tacky until the gilding flakes have been applied. I then cut the image out using the smallest cutting die form the Classic Adorned rectangles set from the New Noble die range. I mount this in vintage gold card and foam mounted it onto a piece of coconut white card cut with the largest and the debs dies form the same set. The wonderful thing about this die is that it has a stunning large debs area which on this piece I have highlighted using enchanted gold gilding wax.
I made a card blank by using the largest die in the set and a folded sheet of A4 card making sure that the folded edge was placed just inside the line that cuts on the die on one edge. This means that when run through the grand caliber only three sides cut, the die is a very strong one and just both layers in one pass, leaving the hinge or fold on the left hand side.
Finally I added the front panel, mounted in more of the gold, onto the card and added the gilding flakes stamped sentiment form the same set to the front. The sentiment is on a banner cut again from one of the new range of dies (more of this one in later posts!)
Hopefully this picture shows how much this card shines!
