Don't forget Sue Wilson is launching the One Day Special tonight at 8pm! I thought I would show another card I made using some of the dies Sue has on the show. I was asked to make a sample for a wedding invitation for some marketing at Creative Expressions for a Scandinavian company and this is what I came up with, I hope you like it.
I stared by making a gate fold card form coconut white foundation card, I then used the new lattice Window die to cut the filigree sections in each of the two panels of the fold i used the detail and the insert cutting die. Next I cut 2 panels of wisteria foundation card using the outside cutting die form the triplet, I then cut the lattice section of the die in the centre of each of these panels and mounted these behind the front card panels.
I stamped the wedding invitation sentiment on a scrap of wisteria and cut it out with the smallest die in the pierced flags die set and added this across the heart with some stick on pearls at the joint. I adhered the heart, with from tape, to the left hand side of the gate fold.
Next I cut two of the buckle bars and hooked the two together adhering them at the back. This meant that I have to ends of the buckle coming across the front. When the card is closed the two ends of the buckle interlock ( I'm sure Sue will be demoing this tonight or tomorrow) I added a pearl in the centre as well as small 3mm stick on pearls on each of the joint of the filigree.
I hope this makes sense however here are a few more pictures which should hopefully help!
