I thought you might like to see one of the demo card I made on Hochanda on Sunday, this card is not a neat as I would like I blame the pressure of making it on live TV!
I stared by stamping the Flower Pop Stamp to Die For (it was a stamp to die for masterclass after all!) onto Taupe foundation card using perfect medium and heat set it with detail white cosmic shimmer embossing powder. I repeated this three times then cut it out using the matching Montreal die form Sue Wilson's Canadian collection.
Next I added black PVA pearl dots on to some of the centres of the flowers to make the flowers actually pop! I then cut 3 frames from black foundation card using the same dies from the set which I kept (using low tack tape) in the same set (this was a lot easier to show on air). I cut the black frames in half and added them as shadows on each side of the stamped buckles. The centre buckle I added back the centre piece from one of the black frames using foam tape at the back on the top and bottom. This created a backing for the ribbon to pass through.
I then threaded the grosgrain ribbon, from Creative Expressions, through the loop of black at the front and slid on the other 2 frames on their side (the pic shows what I mean better)
I simply tied the ribbon at the back and added a simple bow on the front.
Hopefully great idea for men's cards?!?
