I had a fab time in Fleetwood at Crafty Company yesterday I met some faces from the last time I was in the area as well as some new ones and had a brilliant time. The Lovely Sandra and Keiron were brilliant hosts and have asked me back for a demo day and a workshop day later in the year so contact them if you are interested.
Today's card is one that I made for the demo day to feature the stacked diamond striplet, I love the simplicity of this card's look just 2 colours and the die does (most) of the the work!
I started by cutting a rectangle of lilac card and then cutting the centre piece of the triplet from the top left corner. I repeated the cut from the bottom right and foam mounted the whole piece over a larger piece of coconut white foundation card.
To decorate I used 2 of the full pearl corner in white in the opposing corners and 2 in the others with the central pearl flower cut off.
Next I die cut the striplet using the outline die as well i lilac. I then cut a base for the design using just the outline die in white and mounted the two pieces together. I added one of the flowers, cut form the pearl corners, in the centre and added the whole piece to a strip of scrap card.
Finally I added a few mats and layers of lilac and white to finish the card.
