I know there has been a lot of blue this week but I couldn't let Friday pass without showing another blue card. This is another of the demo cards I did however this was for the Pick of the Day show on Ideal World and Create and craft as few weeks ago. I thought I had posted this one but I guess not as I can't find it lol If you have spotted it before please let me know!
I stared by die cutting the classic weaving die out of coconut white foundation card however this time I placed the die back on the card further along to extend the lines. The great beauty of this die is that it doesn't have a cutting edge at the bottom so by slotting the die back into the cut lines further on you can make the strips as long as you need.
Next I cut 2 sets of the classic die in periwinkle blue card and simple wove the 2 colours together to make this longer panel of the weaving. I hand cut an aperture in a square (18x18cm) of coconut white card then embossed it with the A4 fine finials embossing folder. I simply rubbed enchanted gold gilding wax over the raised are and polished it off with a dry wet wipe.
It make the centre element I cut a piece of periwinkle using the santorini die I used the largest and the filigree section to cut this then cut a piece of the white using just the largest die to make a mat. I cut the next outline down in the set in coconut white and stamped the sentiment, form my cherry blossom stamp set, in the centre
To finish the card I added PVA pearls using the summer blue cosmic shimmer and added a few mats of the blue and white to make a 21 x 21cm card finished size.
I also used this technique of extending the weaving for tomorrows project and the great news is it isn't in blue! lol
