This weeks giveaway has been moved to Friday and may have an extra special prize as well as the usual card! Therefore today it's just a card I'm afraid!
I started this one by cutting the outline background die from the Caribbean set however I cut this down the middle to make it into a square. I left a large 2cm bored all round and trimmed away the joining piece in the middle to make the square shown. I then mounted this onto a piece of Aqua foundation card leaving a 1/2 cm bored all round.
Next I cut the outline die from the st Kitts die in the aqua card and then cut another in black card however this time I used the filigree insert piece as well. These were stuck together and foam mounted over the background to hide the joins!
I cut the next layer in the St Kitts set in aqua and added the next size again in black. I stamped the sentiment, from my butterfly dreams clear stamp set, in perfect medium and embossed it with Phill Martin's Decadent Teal embossing powder.
I added a black seam binding bow and one of the new aqua dazzlers.
To make the card I embossed a 18x18cm square of black card with the new CE textures embossing folder Linen. I rubbed Phill Martin's decadent teal gilding wax over the raised area, waited a few minutes and polished the wax with a dry wet wipe. To finish the card I added a few layers of the Aqua and black foundation card to make a square 21x21cm card.
