Good morning, its me again, just when you thought it was safe to blog lol!!!
Also, I've noticed that this is my 250th post. . . . . and they
hoped said it wouldnt last hahaha!
Today its another DT card as its time for another challenge at MAWTT and the theme, as chosen by our head honcho Hazel (Didos) is this. . . . . . .
Make your creation predominantly in your Birthstone Colour.
Hope you're able to go take a peek at my team mates creations here and it would be lovely to see some familiar names joining in.
Now, the reason my card is greener than a leprechauns longjohns is because I'm a May baby so my predominant colour is green.
I did wonder how I could make such a big splash of green look good but I'm quite pleased with the result.
Its an 8x8 as I wanted to use my new SB Lonely Hearts die (another similar to a Striplet) to make a panel by cutting it 3 times in a row (can anyone see a row of 3 "crabs" along the top with their pincers in the air?. . . . . .No? Just me then, lol!!!)
When I glued the cut out piece to the paler green card, I ran it through the GC as I would if using a mask to emboss. This has two purposes, in that it helps to stick the 2 pieces together and also the paler green card embosses slightly through the cut out piece. You can probably see it on this next photo a bit better. . . . . . . .

Green paper (Lidl - its 135gsm & complements the card packs) for bottom green layers

If green is not your thing, I'm sure it would look ok in another colour (may try that one out actually lol!!)
That's me for today and don't worry, you'll have a few days reprieve before I'm back again hahaha!!!

Have a Happy Good Friday tomorrow and enjoy the hot cross buns (ummmmmm!)
