A Little Plum...
I'm back on Hochanda next Sunday evening at 8pm with the launch of the One Day Special showcasing the new dies designed by Sue Wilson for Creative expressions. I will start the sneak peaks tomorrow however for today I really enacted to give this card its day on the blog. This was the last demo I made on the last set of shows.
I just Loved this combination of Rich Plum and coconut white and the way that the Madeline die works so well in many different ways!
I started by cutting just the detail dies ( dies 2 and 4) in the Madeline set into a piece of rich plum foundation card. I lined these 2 cuts up carefully so that they met in the centre, this means I get the totally new pattern that shows in the centre of the card.
Hopefully this picture shows what I mean in the centre is the diamond and surrounding pattern this is not anywhere on the die it is created by the meeting of the 2 edges its like magic!
I then cut the cape daisies in both plum and white, shaped them and made the contrasting flowers as shown. I cut centres ( included in the die set) in plum and white, shaped these, and added these to the centre of the daisies along with white microbeads. A white bow and a few of the pine sprig dies in white and finished.
I really love the elegant look of this card I hop you will agree!
All cards from the latest giveaways will be posted out today so make sure you sent your address in I'm sorry these have been delayed however this is my first day off for 3 weeks!
