Faux Buckle Card

Hi bloggers!  Labels 18, not 20 for a change!  You know I just had to do it though, another buckle card, well it is actually a faux buckle card!  I  am not sure what it is about these, but I just love making them in all their different configurations.  Diagonally this time.  I started with the background which was embossed with the Mystic Embossibility folder.  It is easily extendable because the pattern repeats so that is what I have done to get the larger size background.  I used the three largest sizes dies in the Labels 18 set for my frames, one large and two slightly smaller ones.  For the largest size, I added the matching pearl Nestabling to really bling up the centre of my card.  I used one of the Justrite border stamps and white embossed it for my strip in my buckle.  I added an aqua mat for it and cut the ends into forks.  On a piece of coconut white card, I stamped the Justrite Fleur de lis stamp and white embossed it.  I stamped my sentiment in the open area using Broken China distress ink and I edged it too to bring out the pattern in the embossing.  I cut it out with the matching labels 20 die.  Since it is a faux buckle card, I haven't actually woven my strip through the frames.  I didn't want my strip to cover the Nestabling, so I have just made it look like the strip is woven when in fact I have just placed it between the frames and attached mounting foam on the back to hold them in place (making it a faux buckle card!)  I placed the sentiment tag in the centre with mounting foam.  I used some aqua silky crush ribbon across the bottom of the card and tied a double bow.  I used some pearl stick pins and a fancy brad from my craft stash for the middle of the bow. The only thing left to do was the piercing around the edges to complete my buckle card.  I hope you're not all buckled out!  All for now, Sue x

Ha, Sue, couldn't NOT use L20 then?!
It's a super card, lots of design layouts I guess most of us would never have thought of. Very clever - will try to use the ideas.

You have just made my mind up about buckle cards. I really like them. I know it has taken me a while to decide but yes they are for me. I love today's colours and the configuration.I think this would make a good man card changing the colour scheme of course.

Hi Sue I am certainly not fed up with buckle cards because I am yet to do one...just waiting for my Christmas dies to make one! I got the project book yesterday and absolutely love it! It really has a professional feel about it and loved the instructions and illustrations. I went through the book guessing which cards were yours LOL! Take care Love Michelle xxx

alimecca said...

Hi Sue
Lovely card - I really like the buckle cards (or faux buckle in this case). I really must try to make one. I like the fact that they can be male or female by really just changing colour & taking away bows etc. Finally managed to track down labels 20 - although I think it's coming from America - so I'll be able to have a go at some of your gorgeous cards!!
