A Little bling...
Well its a new month which means a new selection over at the Creative Expressions design team blog. Its always worth popping over to see what the team have come up with and this month the stamping team have been given my paper pack to deal with so that will be interesting!
Today's card is made using the new Peace Dove festive die with the snowflake background which is fast becoming my fave of this years Christmas range. I stated by cutting the background in aqua foundation card with the centre oval die in place. Next I cut around the edge of the die so that I just got the background with a thin bored. I then mounted this onto acetate so that it could float over the background piece.
To make the sparkly background i covered a piece of scrap card with a double sided adhesive sheet and sprinkled over silver mica flakes. The mica flakes are a lot more substantial than the mica powder and have a really beautiful shine and sheen to them. Next I cut a larger frame for the die cut so that a layer of the background was visible around the edge (well you don't waste a good background by hiding out too much! I foam mounted this over and added a pierced mat of aqua and a thinner vintage silver layer to frame the piece.
The tip is made using more of the scrap card with the adhesive which I cut the Peace word and dove from. I then covered these in the mica flakes and from mounted them in the centre over an oval of aqua card (just using the other oval in the background set)
Finally a rhinestone star spray ( I have gone all bling haven't i?) and finished.
It would be great if you could click HERE and leave a comment on the CE Design Team blog!
