Yellow and Grey...

Happy Thursday,

Today's card is a real mix of dies with Amy Design, Daisy Jewels and Creative expressions all teaming up for this yellow, white and grey card.

I stared by cutting the circle background in pearl card and backing this with velum.  I then cut the outer circle die in yellow and the inner circle die form white and mounted these over a circle of velum.  I stamped the sentiment onto the centre in grey ink so that it appears to float.

I layered all of this together as shown and added a messy bow of white and silver satin ribbon with a Craft Consortium embellishment in the centre ( the knot was messy!)  I then added layers of the yellow white and steel to make the main square.

For the background I used the CE Trellis die to cut the intricite trellis across the bottom adding pearls at the top and bottom to add some dimension ( and to save me the job of studding each of the trellis dots with a pearl!)

My usual collection of mats and layers completes the card.

  4. Morning John, another sensation today, love the grey and yellow with the vellum too, they work well together, the trellis certainly sits beautifully on here, when I make this I think I would like to add the drops to each are on the trellis, yes that would give me great pleasure doing that...sad aren't I.....don't answer that.

    It is also nice to see combinations of different suppliers products, as you know most crafters buy from lots of suppliers.

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

  17. Yellow and grey is a colour combo not often seen, I like it. SueL x

  18. Morning John, another lovely card, and I love the colour combination, though I don't often use Lemon in my cards as I have not yet found one I really like.

  19. Very pretty card today. Lemon is a colour I rarely use, if I do its usually with blue, green or lavender, but it works well with the silver/grey shade of the pearl card.

    Love & Hugs

  42. Hi John. One of my most favourite colour combinations, yellow and grey (I know it's silver, but it looks grey in the pictures). I always approve of the use of trellis dies too as I think they are so elegant.
