Today's card showcases another 2 of the current range of dies designed by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions that will be on my Hochanda shows starting at 8pm on Thursday evening. Today I am sharing this card made with the Olivia frames and tags and the Antlia Gemini die.
I started by cutting the outliers die on the olive into a square of bright white foundation card cut with the noble double pierced squares. I added a panel behind this and cut the detail in the olive out form this. I then embossed the detail die in sherbert and baby pink and cut the centre of the pink added this one the sherbet and added the whole piece behind the die cut.
Next I cut one of the edges and the detail from the Antlia die into a strip of bright white across the bottom. I backed this with baby pink and repeated the process to make one in sherbet. I overlapped these and added the panel at the top.
I cut the wispy fronds and the small flowers from the spring foliage and arranged these, as shown, across the side to balance the pieces.
I finished the card as shown with layers of the three colours.
