Show days and Win...
Firstly if you would like to win today's card simply leave a comment and I will select one comment at random to be sent the card!
This is another demo card form the One Day Special which features the Indian Ocean collection which to me has a beautiful Art Deco feel.
Today's card, made in the foundation Pearl Card, to me really says Art Deco. I started by cutting the Indian Ocean border die across a piece of icicle pearl foundation card. The die slots back in which allows you to continue the pattern as long as you want. I matted and layered this onto a piece of the copper pearl and icicle pearl card.
Next for the centre element I cut the Noble double pierced circles set B in alternating Copper and icicle mounting them behind and above the border strip. I then cut one of the Indian Ocean tags ( from the Tag Duo set) in copper backed in icicle and icicle backed in copper and rooted them before mounting them above the circles.
I cut the scripted Thankyou die in icicle and copper and shadow mounted them before adding across the centre. Finally I added 8mm white pearls on the border strip and added the whole piece to an embossed panel of the copper pearl card. I used the cross stitch A4 embossing folder which I really feel compliments the shapes and lines of the Art Deco style.
No flowers and bows so a little different for me but I love the simplicity of allowing the dies and card to speak for themselves.
