Today I'm sharing this card made with the elegant corner from the Downton Abbey range from Crafters Companion. I bought this die as soon as I saw it as it seemed perfect for me and my stake and this card is the first I came up with.
I started by cutting the die down one side of a piece of champagne pearl card then I rotated the die and cut it down the other edge. Next I placed this over a piece of silver white pearl card and using my scalpel, cut the edge to match those on the die.
I then took a panel of the champagne pearl card and scored it at 1/4" intervals along the length to create the striped background panel. I then added a frame with the spellbinders matting basics dies and foam mounted the layers behind this as shown.
I wanted something classic and elegant to sett off the background and discovered the Decorative Swallowtail Tags die set by Becca Feeken in my unused die box ( the box I'm currently working my way through!) I cut the largest tag in champagne the smallest in white and topped this with the smallest stamped with the sentiment in Cobalt Archival ink in the champagne pearl card.
I mounted these over a bow of blue and white 5mm satin ribbon from my stash. What I love about this die is the fact that I haven't needed to use a pearl anywhere yet it still looks opulent!
