Good morning everybody. Hope you are well and enjoying the long awaited heatwave........long may it last!!!
Told you the last card was my one and only Christmas card and even that was from last year LOL.!!! I will try and come up with some more
Well, after removing the secret cameras that had been installed by Heather in my craft room, I had a play with this card (I have moved the cameras to my bathroom so that will teach her a lesson or make her scream LOL !!!)
I apologise if the picture quality is not great but I took them on my phone as my camera battery went to sleep as I switched it on.
I started with an A4 piece of PMD Raspberry Pink card. I left the length at 29.8cm but cut the height to the same as the largest of the Spellbinders Elegant Labels Four dies.
I then scored at 7.5cm in from each end.
Using the largest Elegant Labels Four, I just cut the flap at either end by overhanging the rest over the edge of the cutting plate (if that makes sense....the next picture may assist my waffle).
I then cut 3 of the middle die from this set out of PMD cream linen card and inked through the die with a fuchsia pink ink. I didn't ink onto the centre of the die cut, just through the holes.
I then cut two of these to fit the front of the card and stamped each with the rose stamp* in the fuchsia ink. They were then stuck onto the front of the card.
On the 3rd die cut, I stamped it with the sentiment in fuchsia again and stuck it inside the card.
I then used fuchsia pink organza ribbon, threaded through the gaps to tie in a bow. In the flesh, the ribbon colour is pretty much the same shade as the card but has come out different on the pictures.
A different take on a filigree card so I hope you like it.
More F1 tomorrow and tennis................remember to cheer on our boys, English and Scottish!
May have another trip to the bookies.
Its late now (I'm scheduling) so time for beddybyes.
Hope you have the Sun in the sky and in your hearts and thank you, as always, for popping by.
* I got this in a box of wood mounted rubber stamps at a car boot. There are approx 90 stamps and I got the lot for £5.........result !!!
