It's Friday which means another new card made with Vintage dies and this week I've chosen the Belgian collection and just the Brussels die. This card is made with just one die and one embossing folder ( if we exclude the flower lol)
I started by cutting the detail die twice in a 6" x 8" piece of ivory foundation card. I backed this with velum and then periwinkle foundation card, this makes the colour softer and extends the shades available. I then cut the die in full in ivory and backed this with velum before foam mounting it over periwinkle and placed it in the centre.
For the smaller die in the set I cut this three times in periwinkle and cut the shape in velum and ivory. I added the velum over the top and added ivory behind, again this softens the blue from the periwinkle. I added these as shown adding the 2 side pieces under the main cut to look like a strip across the front.
I embossed a piece of velum using the A4 quilted flower embossing folder and spray glued this onto a piece of periwinkle before cutting to size and adding more mats and layers of the Ivory and Periwinkle.
Finally I added a hand made rose shaded with colour cloud blending ink and added this to a lace bow with thin stain ribbon and 3 hand made hat pins.
