I thought it might be fun to visit Canada again as I simply love this background die and the corner, border and tags set matches beautifully!
I stared by cutting the centre panel from the Canadian collection background on its own in Coconut white card. I then cut it out around the die to give me the panel. I then foam mounted this onto primrose card and added a thin mat of the coconut white.
To make the background of this card I cut the Canadian border four times out of primrose foundation card and mounted 2 facing each other along a strip of the white. I matted this strip onto white and another layer of primrose before adding a strip of raw silk satin ribbon (the thin one that comes in the pack) tied around the centre. To make the next layer I cut a piece of the white and added the two cut borders, again facing each other, to the edges and from mounted the centre strip in place. I added a few layers and mats of the primrose and white to make a landscape card with the background panel added, with from tape, to the left hand side in the centre.
The flowers are made with Sue's stunning new classic folded flower die in white felt. Julia Watts has kindly made a video tutorial on how to make these flowers, click HERE to see the video. I added these to a double bow, made with 2 strips, of the raw silk double sided satin ribbon from the same pack as the thinner ribbon used previously.
All the dies mentioned are available in Julia's online store and she also has a small quantity of the Watercolour palettes that sold out on Create and Craft on Tuesday.
Today will see me travelling down to Norwich for Saturdays demo day at Sew Simple click HERE for details of the shop. I can't wait as I am informed that there is a kind of village around the shop with cafes, chocolate shops and a farmers Market! If you are in the area pop in and say Hi or just ask any questions you want I'm there to help with Sue's new range of dies and my stamps as well as my usual plethora of Cosmic Shimmer must haves!
