A daily papercrafting blog which features my handmade cards showcasing Creative Expression's products including my own line of cutting dies and embossing folders, Cosmic Shimmer, Ranger, Spellbinders and more which use various techniques and ideas to hopefully inspire the creativity in you.
Hello bloggers! Corner, corner, who has the corner? I do and eight of them to boot! The corner from the Austrian Collection is gorgeous and makes such a beautiful card too. So simple, cut four of them and glue them to a piece of pale lavender card. Cut a smaller pale lavender square, cut four more corners out of coconut white card, glue them into the corners so that each of the corners overlaps, creating a different pattern. Cut a wider white mat for it and add decorative white PVA glue dots to the edge after mounting the entire piece in a diamond fashion. Out of the pale lavender card, cut the decorative middle die from my new Salzburg die and mount on to foam in the centre of the card. Stamp your sentiment and cut it out with the smallest die in that set. Ink it with Shaded Lilac distress ink before removing it from the die and mount in the centre of your focal element. I added a pierced white mat layer before finishing with a thin lavender mat and a final white mat layer. This is definitely a case of a card where the dies do all the work, but they do it so beautifully, don't they! The finished dimension are 6 3/4" x 6 3/4" in size.
