I had a fab time at thats crafty in Romford on Saturday and have agreed to go back in August to do a workshop in the morning and demo in the afternoon. There are limited places for the workshop (which as it's august will be a christmas card and box!) so contact Thats Crafty HERE for details of date and price etc!
I thought it was time to show some of the sample sI made for the Pick Of The Day shows I did with the wonderful Sue Wilson last month as so few of the 70 odd I made got held up for long!
This card is made, in various shades of Foundation card in blue, using just the ornate corner die for all of the fancy filigree bits as this die has both corners then it makes a beautiful centre piece. The neat thing about this one is although they are asymetrical with some cutting they can be made symmetrical. To do this just cut off the corners and you have matching pieces (this is so much easier to show than describe!)
To make the centre piece I used sky blue and duck egg blue and cut 2 each of the 2 corner dies , i then cut the corners out of 4 of the lighter shade and foam mounted the, made into a medallion, onto four of the corners mounted again as a medallion.
The background is the leafy quad A4 embossing folder which I have rubbed over with Summer blue gilding wax and polished off with a dry wet wipe (available in Julia's shop click HERE)
