When I was in Washington at the weekend I saw the most beautiful card made by one of the tutors there Norma. I was lucky enough to be given the card as I wanted to emulate the lacing she had done at the top of the card. As you can see form today's card I went down the full lacing route!
I stared by cutting the edger die by spellbinders ( Sorry I can't find the package so dont know the name) twivce and cut one down the centre. I then arranged them as shown with a full die cut in the centre and one half on each edge adhered with foam tape. I then threaded thin gold satin ribbon between the centre and the two sides ( as shown)
I then cut the largest die in the elegant ovals die using the Creative Expressions pierced ovals to cut an aperture. I then cut just the oval in gold and mounted this behind. I added this with foam tape in the centre of the card and used spring foliage and camellia flowers for the main element.
I finished with the flowers and foliage (shaded with vintage photo distress ink) over a messy bow of white and more of the gold satin ribbon.
