Classic in Cobalt...
I thought I would freshen the palette today with a classic card in cobalt and bright white after spending yesterday Christmas Shopping and gift wrapping ands Saturday night dressing my tree I wanted smarting fresher!
I have added picture of my Christmas Tree at the end of the post if you want to see it!
Today's card is made just using the Tahiti die form the Pacific island collection and the Lotus striplet ( you know I love a striplet)
I started by cutting the outer, detail and inner die form the lotus striplet into Cobalt foundations card. I then cut the outer die from bright white and adhered the blue cut over the top. I then cut the final detail panel form the centre of the white.
For the main element I cut the Tahiti die in white card and carefully took the die cut out leaving the 'waste' in the die. I cut the outline die form cobalt card that I added double sided adhesive sheet to. I pulled off the protective coating and added this to the die with the pieces in place. This transferred the 'waste' pieces to the cobalt and I added diamond sprinkles to the exposed adhesive.
I cut the centre die from the set in white and threaded cobalt thin ribbon from my stash through the slots finishing with a stamped sentiment on cobalt cut with the smallest die in the set.
I finished with tail of the ribbon and a crystal pearl heart embellishment form Craft Consortium.
No flowers so would work as a men's card or for many occasions.
I forgot earlier so heres the tree! x
