Another sample card from my shows last week on Hochanda this time a classic petticoat card made using the Antlia Gemini die.
I stared by cutting panel with the outline die from the Olivia frame and tags die. next I cut the detail die into another panel again in white. next I embossed piece of wisteria and lilac card with the detail die. I cut the centre from the lilac and added this on top of the wisteria embossed piece before fitting it back into the white die cut. This gives the look of a paper pieced panel which is a lot quicker than paper piecing.
For the petticoat section i cut a strip of coconut white foundation card using the detail and one of theses form the Antlia Gemini die. I backed this with wisteria using the cutting edge to match the edge of the white. I repeated this and backed the second with lilac card. I then mounted these above each other and added the olive panel at the top.
I made up the card as shown using layers of the three colours and added a lilac bow form satin ribbon from my stash.
