Blingy Angle Approach

Hi there!  It's Monday morning and I hope that this card will keep the blues away for you! I started with a piece of gold card and applied strips of sticky adhesive to all four sides (removing the backing paper as I went and overlapping the corners).  I applied the Luna Silver mica flakes to the  sticky taped edges to create a border for my card.  Next, I used the Angle Approach from the |Cut, Fold, Tuck die sets and cut the largest one out of white card.  I folded all the pieces and tucked them in to place where they belonged.  I cut a another piece of gold card and placed a sticky sheet on the back.  I peeled off the liner paper and added a piece of white copy paper to the back.  This gave me a two toned piece of card that I now used to cut another of the large Angle Approach dies from.  I folded back the gold side and tucked them in place.  I offset this to the first one I cut and mounted it directly on top giving me a more detailed look.  I folded down the centre pieces so that the gold showed and placed a pearl brad through to hold them in place.  I tied a double bow from the white frilly edged ribbon.  I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with the smallest Moroccan accent piece.  I cut one more of the same piece out of gold this time and offset it with my sentiment to give it a shadow.  I mounted these in the centre of my bow and added two pearl stick pins to finish it.  I pierced around the edge of my card to complete the overall card.  I hope it is blingy enough to start your Monday off nicely!  All for now, Sue x

This is a lovely start to the week, such a pretty card. I didnt think that I would like these dies initially but you have changed my mind as always, Sue and I just love that bow.

Hi Sue,
what a wonderful card as always. Need to win the lottery so I can buy these dies. Here I go again wanting more of them. My hubby says I haven't got any room in my craft room for any more. But hey you know us crafty people, we will always find a little space for something new. LOL. Have a great crafty day everyone.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

KellysKards said...

Beautiful Card. I love the big die cut its so lovely

Maggie said...

Love the border idea. Not sure about these fold back dies - I prefer think I would find them too fiddly and time consuming, but I certainly like what you have achieved. Must get the hang of putting the sentiment in the ribbon as it's a great finishing touch. Thank you. xx

Rosemarie said...

Morning Sue, Love the bling. I must use my flakes now I have got them, the results are lovely.

Have a good day, Bren

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, blingy indeed! I needed more inspiration for my Angle Approach dies and you have just given it to me, thank you. I don't have silver flakes, just gold, so will maybe try it with some glitter instead.

Pleased to hear you are getting better and hope it's not too long before you get back to your usual energetic self.

Congratulations to all of yesterday's winners.

I love the gold and white of the angle flower. I have this die and think adding white paper to one side of the card is a great idea to get the two tone effect. Emma

Love the cut and tuck, i bought when first came out. Takes your work to the next level.
