Today finds me with the lovely people of Keep on Crafting in Bury St Edmonds leading a workshop! I have been so busy preparing for the launch of my new Spring Collection including a new paperback that all my spare time seems to have been taken up with making samples of them! I thought, therefore, that I would show another card I made with the new Perspective dies designed by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions. Again I hope you agree that this is a different card type and style for me!
I cut the new Zig Zag bar into a strip of coconut white card, I then removed the die cut shape and placed a piece of double sided adhesive sheet behind the aperture however I left the protective sheet in place. With my craft knife i carefully cut into the protective sheet in lines across the piece removing each section at a time too expose the adhesive. I used various shades of polished silk glitter in each section in turn to create an ombre effect down the piece.
Next I placed the die cut zig zag back into the waste space using spray adhesive keeping back the individual pieces for another project ( more of that on Monday)
Next I cut the thank you perspective die form coconut white card with the outside circle that comes as part of the set. I then cut, form coconut white card covered in double sided adhesive sheet, the smallest and the outside dies form the set. I removed the protective sheet and added the dark blue polished silk glitter on the exposed adhesive. For the centre ring I cut the larger circle and the inner leaf motif again form the white and added a circle of adhesive covered card behind this. I then added silver polished silk glitter in the adhesive with a small clear dazzler in the centre.
To finish I mounted this with from tape to the left of the striped section and mounted the whole thing onto cobalt and white layered card.
Something that I hope you will agree is very different for me, clean and simple without any flowers, foliage or a bow!
On another note It has been asked if I could do a revisit day on my blog for some of the older dies in my collection. It would be great to know what you think and any ideas where I should start!
