After Blue Thursday I couldn't not show blue today even though I should of changed the colour! Todays card is made as a team effort at my demo in Strikes garden centre in Blackpool. The ladies were asking me how to apply the pearl PVA in dots so I cut the Lattice diagonal die (as it has a perfect place for the pearl dots join the lattice, and got them to do a row each! I think they did very well and as you can see for the card got better with each row. I didn't want to waste their hard work so I made the piece into this card whilst there!
I used the same etchniqure as yesterday to make the frame however this time I didn't add the double sided adhesive I just cut a blue filigreed frame and a plain coconut white frame and set them on top of each other. I then cut the smallest die and filigree section from the die set and set this in the centre adding foam tape to each panel.
next I embossed a piece of coconut white card using the new fantails A5 sized embossing folder. This was to show how this folder can be extended to cover a larger piece. I rubbed pearl moon gilding wax over the piece and added it rot a card base made with layers of the sky blue and coconut white.
Finally I added a messy bow, made with the help of 2 fingers form one of the ladies, and added it with a dazzler over the lattice.
I hope you don't mind me showing this group effort!
