I hope you all enjoyed the shows yesterday I had a real laugh with Martin!
back to today and as you all know by now I have a real soft spot for Sue's Noble dies collection this new design has so much interest in it I have been happily playing with the different layers. When I first get a die set I usually make a tunnel card where I cut all the layers and mount them backwards form the smelters to the largest so that the design goes into the centre. This is exactly what I first did with this the new Classic Adorned Design die set. I simply cut each die in Spearmint or coconut white foundation card alternating the colours with each die.
The beauty of this set ids the thick layer of debating on the second die which has added this stunning swirl pattern to the second layer cut in spearmint. To get the deboss image you simply need to impress the pattern using the tan mat and pink plate in your calibre, for other machines check what the embossing sandwich is and use that! I highlighted the swirls by adding some PVA pearl dots using the cosmic pearl PVA.
It make the card I simple layers the die cuts in ever decreasing sizes adding pearl dots where the seemed to be needed ( and I will add them at every opportunity lol) I cut each subsequent layer larger on the outside (to do this I cut the largest front piece to a size and simply use the lines on my piercing ruler to cut each layer to a mat as I add them on working from the largest to the smallest (I know this makes sense in my head so I hope it does to you)
To finish the card I added some of the new CE pearl corners and a set layer of the spearmint and white. A large card however I will be back tomorrow to show how this can be turned into a small card, flexibility or what?!?
