Firstly I would like to thank the lovely ladies at the workshop yesterday we all had a real laugh If you missed the workshop but would like to attend one then I have a few planned (as I mentioned a couple of weeks ago) at That's Really Crafty in Loughborough. There are a few species left for the first one next Monday the 6th July click HERE for more details of the workshops and this brilliant treasure trove of a craft shop (it's my local craft shop so I pick up loads of stuff there!) I wonder sometimes how Christian manages to pack so much in!
As promised this is a different version of the card I shows yesterday. We all had a fab time playing with all the different techniques and projects yesterday. The Ladies came up with some brilliant cards and a couple of them made them in alternate colours (I love to see my projects come out differently and use other colours than my originals)
Today's card is made in Aqua which I think is just such a fresh looking colours especially when teamed with my ever present Coconut white! lol
I stared by die cutting the Portuguese collection background dies 1 and 2 (if counting as the largest being one and working in) in aqua foundations card I then cut a half centimetre around the die cut for a border. Next I cut just die 2 from coconut white card and mounted the aqua die cut above, I then cut the coconut white outline 1/2cm wider. I then cut dies 3 and 4 from aqua card then just die 4 from white. I continued this to make each of the layers finishing with the smallest die in the set in aqua and added it to a piece of coconut white card covered in double sided adhesive. Finally I added some iced snow in the gaps and dusted decadent denim over the iced snow to give the variation in colour.
The flowers are made using the perfect peonies complete petals in aqua and the open petals in white.
I finished the card by cutting the maidenhair fern dies in white adding the flowers on the top. Finally I added some cosmic pearl PVA glue dots.
