Yes I am back again this weekend, this time with my Design Team Inspiration for the Scribble and Scrap Challenge 43 the theme is always "anything goes". Why not join in there is always a prize?
I saw John Lockwood demonstrating when I was at Ally Pally he made a card with this design. I bought the dies (Sue Wilson - Ornate pierced Rectangles ) and had a go myself. There is another matching die set and I might just have to buy that one as well.
You can use the dies to make a card blank but the card can't be too thick I used Creative Expressions foundation card. You get a nice pierced edge round the card without the effort, I used a sticky sheet to add CS Glitter Jewels Iced snow behind the filigree detail of the dies. I stuck the sticky sheet to blue card so the glitter had some colour behind it.
Flower was made with the Sue Wilson delicate daises dies I love how you can cut a border for the petals.I cut four layers and added a flat back pearl to the middle. Behind the flower I put some leaves cut with the Faux Quilled leaves die.
The sentiment was cut with tattered lace die it was just the right size for the card.
This card really sparkles when it catches the light. I enjoyed making my own card blanks I think I will be making many more. I have even been thinking about Christmas card ideas. Oops maybe it is too soon to mention the C word.
Update on the Wedding Invitations - they are going well. So far I have been mostly die cutting, today I hope to get inky.
I hope you have a wonderful Sunday.
