No Christmas Bling...
I thought it would be nice, as everyone is showing Christmas at the minute, to show some bling that isn't festive! Todays card was made at at demo day a few weeks ago as everyone always asks to see Sue's Fire and Ice technique and I thought the ornate pierced noble square was perfect for it!
I started by making the card blank using the largest die in the set ( fold a piece of A4 coconut white card in half then place the die up to the edge of the fold making sure that the cutting edge is above the fold so that you get a hinge) Next I used the filigree die and the next frame size down (using my system dies 2 and three and cut the filigree and apart in the centre.
I then cut the centre die in the middle of a piece of coconut white card stock. next I cut the outline and word from another scarp of card using the Expressions Thank You die set.
Next I used Sue Wilson's fire and Ice technique to decorate each of the three separate pieces. I was going to write a description of this however I remembered that Sue had done a you tube video on this so I thought it would be best to just insert her video and save you form having to work it out form my badly typed instructions!
