Modern Abbey...

Happy Monday,

Another card made with the Crafters Companion Downton Abbey die however this time with amore modern feel to it.

I simply cut the die twice into a piece of navy card reversing it for each cut.  I then removed the centre stripe and added a strip of self adhesive pearls in the swirl!











I simply stamped the sentiment in cobalt ink onto a piece of white card and cut it out with the centre of the circle contempo die.

Simple but effective!


Enjoy...

  8. Beautiful and a lovely idea to put it edge to edge like that. I would have liked to get that die but Crafter's Companion have discontinued the range.

  12. It's a lovely die cut in a beautiful colour but I'm not sure about the pearls - think they're a bit heavy for the delicate background.

  31. Hi John. This is a nice card, but I think I preferred the previous one that you did. I do like this die however, and had a look for it when I saw the card, but it seems to have sold out everywhere. I'll just have to keep looking.

  38. Eh up John
    Love the dark blue and white combo. Will need to get the name of this die from you (like I need anymore lol!) I think white pearls, rather than ivory/cream, may have softened their appearance.
    Keep dry.
