I had a fabulous weekend visiting all three of the Crafters Companion stores so thank you to everyone who attended one of the workshops or demo days!
Todays cards is one that I was asked to demo the techniques form at every store so I thought I should share it! There is only one main die for this card ( apart form the flowers etc) which means by altering the finishing touches its very economical to make lol
I started by cutting the Bee Balm background into a strip of lilac Crafts Too Linen card. I the slotted the die into the last row of flowers and cut again ( I demonstrated this technique on the Hochanda shows so you should be able to watch this on rewind)
One cot I spray glued this onto a piece of gold dust card and then repeated the technique so I had 2 long strips. I then cut one of these down the centre lengthwise and added one half on either side of the main piece.
I stamped the flowers onto a piece of vellum twice i coloured with Izink pigment dropper inks. I then cut these out using the matching die and shaped the flowers adding a Crafts Too Diamond in the centre.
I added a bow and strip of ribbon accross the top before making up the spray with the Swirl leaves and the Bee Balm flowers.
