Today I am demoing at Daisies Jewels and Crafts in Coventry to launch the new Range of Sue Wilson `dies that this card is made with. If you are in the area it would be great if you could come and say Hi and even better if you have a question you want answering!
Well it is blue and small so it should answer Blue Friday and my promise to show how the same die set as yesterday, which was a large A4 card, could be used to make a much smaller card. As you know I love versatility in my dies and the nobles are so versatile.
I stared by making a card bank (yes an actual card not a front) using apiece of coconut white A4 foundation card and the largest die in the Ornate pierced design set, the remainder of the card is made using the Classic adorned and you can use the largest die in that set to make the bank however the beauty of the nobles is that the same shapes in other designs are made to nest and I love the pierced card blank you get form the pierced set!
To make the topper I simply cut and embossed each size of the die again in alternating colours using periwinkle and coconut white.
The final layer is a debs piece which I rubbed enchanted gold gilding wax over the debs area to give the same shade in a different format. The thing I love about Cosmic Shimmer products is that the colours remain constant across the ranges making creating and matching easier!
