Golden Oldie...

Happy Tuesday,

Ive chosen one of my favourites for todays golden oldies and the technique used on this card is really useful as you can supplement loads of different dies to make this one!
























The technique is really simple all I did was to cut the die which is square shaped with four arms to it.  I then pulled the arms into the centre and adhered it with a pearl.  I added a lilac square in the centre and then simply repeated the process and covered the front of this hand made gatefold card with them.

Enjoy...

  2. Wow this looks really complicated but your description certainly makes it sound easy. You obviously just need the right shaped die. Will look at the details later.
    Have a great day.
    Happy crafting,

  10. John. It's lovely seeing your old works of art. You have a great gift to look at dies and see everything that can be done with them apart from the basic thing. This card is truely amazing.

  16. It certainly sounds far easier than it looks. Normally I would say this was a little fussy for my taste but strangely enough I really like it.

  21. Good morning John! What a super way to use a die cut. I, too, must look through to see whether I have a die that would be suitable. I love it. Thank you so much for revisiting some of your earlier projects. They all continue to be amazing. Take care. Craft Owl by the Sea, north Norfolk. xx

  22. That's very pretty John. Looks a bit fiddly to do though! No wonder they kept popping open again. xx

  24. Hello John,
    I definitely have never seen this one before! It's really lovely and very clever! I thought you had used Sue's Bows but I don't know if they were available then or not! A very clever idea. A few on a square box lid would look lovely too! Now you've got me thinking!
    Thank you - hope you are well.
    Love Myra

  28. If ever there was a 3D card design, this one qualifies for sure. I checked out your original post. I think the die you used was Spellbinders Lace Doily Motifs. Wishing you well.

  38. Eh up John
    A little too fussy for me. One or two rows of squares would have hit the spot for me but still a brilliant idea to fold the bits over.
