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.
Good Sunday morning all! I started by embossing a square of wisteria card with the Eternal Ivy embossing folder for some background texture. Next I cut two of the Ravello Striplet out of coconut white card. I backed them both with a solid white backing piece then cut them in half down the centre. I glued all four pieces to the edges of the embossed background, overlapping them at the corners. I cut thin strips out of wisteria card and glued them to the edges as accents. For the focal element, I cut the Hamilton die out of wisteria card and backed it in white. I mounted that to the centre of the card, then added another Hamilton die cut in white but I removed a bit of the design so that it could be layered up and still show some of the original die underneath it. I had originally trimmed it a bit differently but was showed a cleaner way by a friend from the blog so used that as it showed off the lower die cut much better! I stamped a sentiment from the PetiteLavish Sentiment set by Cr. Exp. and seated a New Zealand tag frame over it cut in wisteria and backed in white. I finished the card in my usual manner with pierced mats and layers and added flatback pearls to the dies as accents. The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x 7 1/2" in size.
