Vintage Friday...

Happy Friday,

A trip to Noble Australia today for vintage Friday with the Noble Border ( a die form last year that I have to admit I nearly missed it is so useful)  and the Melbourne die from the Australian collection.

I stared by cutting the Noble border, without the outline die, into a piece of mocha foundation card cut to 51/4" x 81/4"at posing sides as shown.  I backed this with primrose foundation card adding some crystal strips and stick on crystals to highlight the beautiful design of the die.

I next cut the Melbourne die in primrose just using the frame section and backed this with more of the mocha before foam mounting this above the centre of the panel.  I added layers of Tan, Primrose and mocha and a panel embossed with the braided vines A4 embossing folder ( a real favourite)

I added the stitched flags with the sentiment and then a couple of spares of flowers made with the string flower and orange blossom leaves dies with crystals in the centre of the flowers.  A great men's card with the colours but easily for and age or sex with a colour change.

Enjoy...

  30. Hello John, Love the card both style & colour but the dies are actually from the New Zealand Collection. Noble Border and the Auckland Die. Now being a New Zealander I must say we don't actually like being mistaken for Australians. No offence meant to Australian people.

    Hi John,
    Beautiful card and best of all, I've got all the dies. Haven't used my noble border as yet, Sue keeps bringing out all these lovely new dies and I end up buying most of them......... and then I don't have time to use them all............. I suppose I just shouldn't sleep.......:-)
    Have a wonderful Easter.
    Hugs, Rose

  40. Hi John, I really love this card and fortunately I have these dies so there is no reason why I shouldn't be able to create something very similar. Thanks for the inspiration.
