More time for Teal...


Happy Tuesday,

Today's card is one of the demos from my Hochanda shows last week however you may not have seen the demo yet!?!  Whilst there I filmed a pre-record show that can be repeated and this this is one of the 2 demos I did on that show.  so if you missed the original live shows you may still get a chance to catch this one being made in a repeat.

This is s deceptively simple card to make, honest, I stared by stamping the delicate deco stamp to die for in perfect medium onto teal card then embossed it with Cosmic Shimmer true White detail embossing powder.  I repeated this until I had three copies of the image.

Next I cut out the stamped images using the largest and smallest dies in the Herald square die set making three decorated frames.  I simply mounted these together in a row and threaded the white seem binding through in a similar fashion to a buckle card and added a bow in the centre

Hopefully an effective yet simple card dressed up for a lady or left plain for the gents?

Enjoy...

  31. Hi John

    Another beautiful card again today. Love anything in Teal colour.

    It does seem to be a simple construction, but the final effect is awesome. Would make a great Anniversary card.
