Silver Moon Ocean...

Happy Monday,

I thought I would share another card made using the Atlantic ocean background as I love this die and made so many samples using it!


I stared this card by covering a sheet of double sided adhesive with silver moon gilding flakes.  I then cut all the dies in the Atlantic ocean set into this separately.  so I cut the first die, then cut the central die with the outline and the final die again with the outline.


Next I backed the first piece with Wisteria card ( doesn't it look brighter when teamed with white and silver) I then added the spring foliage die cut in white around all four sides of the central square and mounted this with foam in the centre.  I cut the flowers from the Spring Foliage set in more of the gilding flakes which I shaped and added a crystal in the centre.

I backed the final die cut with coconut white and rotated this before foam mounting this in the centre. I added a frame made with the noble double pierced squares dies and set B in white and wisteria and traced the outline with crystal strips ( these come as a double but I like to cut them into single strips)

Finally a pearl and crystal embellishment with a messy bow made with ribbon form my stash ( Ive got to use more ribbon I collect far too much!)

I have updated the demo and workshop list at the right hand of the blog so if you want to see where I will be in March its all there!  Also I am running some workshops at CE Towers in Kettering starting in May for more details see the Creative Expressions Facebook page.

Enjoy...

  1. Morning John, gorgeous card today, I too love the Atlantic background die set, and have used it quite a lot lately, it really is a fabulous set. In fact I gave you a card made with it when I saw you at AP recently, and we are going to be making that one at my craft group on Wednesday, that will be fun.

    I only wished I could get to CE towers for one of your workshops, it is on my bucket list, so one day hopefully.

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

  20. Pretty card. You can't go wrong with gilding flakes - they give more of a textural feel that just using mirror card.

  29. John this is absolutely beautiful, you are so right about the silver and white bringing out the colour of the wisteria card.
    And the foliage and that bow are stunning.
