Gemini Pearls...

Happy Sunday,

I thought I would share this card today one I made especially for my Shows on Hochanda this week. I really wanted to highlight the beautiful detail in the Cassiopeia Gemini die.

I stared by cutting panels of coconut white, Cornflower and duck egg foundation card into strip 5" wide.  I then cut the detail and outline die from the bottom into 2 strips of the white. I then cut just the bottom die from cornflower foundation card and married the 2 together.








I then cut the duck egg panels using the other outline die and mounted these over the other panels as shown.  I then foam mounted one above the other and cut this whole piece to be 8" tall.

Next I cut the detail and outline die form the Megan frames and tags set in white and backed this with cornflower before cutting out the centre.

I foam mounted this on the top of the Gemini panels and then stamped the sentiment and cut it out using the centre die from the Megan set.  I added a seam binding bow made with matching binding adding a pearl embellishment from Creative Expressions in the centre.


Finally I added larger white pearl strips to the top and bottom using a third strip along the line of the Gemini in the centre.

A few layers of the white, cornflower and duck egg finish the card.

Enjoy...

    Hi John,
    Lovely card - just finished watching all your shows and I must say, VERY IMPRESSED with your red numbers!
    I've got the Cassiopeia (amongst others) and liked it when you put the two together, one top and one bottom. Gorgeous effect.
    Hugs, Rose

  32. Hello John ,
    I do apologise for not commenting yesterday! Had the family here and by the time they had gone and I'd cleared up I was too tired and went to bed!
    Today's card is beautiful - lovely Dies and colours used. I don't have them but I'm not spending any more just now and refuse to be tempted by well meaning friends! You know who you are! Lol!
    Many thanks, Love Myra
