I love making buckle cards and I wanted to have a go at making a multi buckle card and this was the result. This was planned as a demo on Hochanda however I didn't get chance ( that happened a lot as we always prep more demos than we need just in case!)
However this may look complex but it is just a buckle are made with 3 large and 3 small buckles all cut from the Sintra die set from Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions.
Next I cut dies 3, 4 and 5 from Chestnut card I cut three of these and then again cut three backers again from black card using dies 3 and 5. To make the central buckle I added back the centre black hexagon by taping it at the top and bottom so that you get 2 sides that the central piece can slip through ( I really hope this makes sense as this was planned as a demo)
Next I cut a strip of milk card and backed it with black card. I then stamped Birthday Wishes in jet black archival ink over the strip.
I simply then wove the strip between each of the 'buckles' and simply mounted the whole piece onto a few layers of chestnut and black.
