Hi bloggers! It has been awhile since I did an all cream (or rather milk card) coloured card. I used the Ornate Octagon Striplet to create a background. I cut it three times using just the decorative insert die and leaving a small gap between each of them. I added mounting foam to the back to raise it for dimension over another piece of milk card for a tonal effect. For the focal element, I cut the Ornate Frame Brighter days in milk and backed it with milk card, gluing them together before using the centre circle die to cut it into a frame. I added mounting foam to the back, then stamped my sentiment (from a Phill Martin set), placed a sticky sheet over it and glittered it with Diamond Snow, before adding the frame over it. I glued it into the centre of the background. I completed the card with a milk card pierced mat layer, then added a thin milk mat with a glittered edge and a final milk mat. The finished dimensions are
8 1/4" x 8 1/4" in size. All for now, Sue x
