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 piece of coconut white card using the Regal Checkerboard embossing folder for texture to my background. Next, I cut the Swiss Borders out of Iris card and Black card using just the solid outline die. I cut them again out of vellum using both the decorative die and the cutting edge. I glued them into place on the edges with the vellum over the iris then the back die peering out a bit as a shadow. For the focal element, I cut the Zurich die in white and backed it in iris card. I cut a black backing, then cut it down the centre and added it as a shadow to. I stamped my sentiment and created a frame for it using the Swiss tag die. I mounted it in the centre of the card. I completed the card with my pierced white mat, an iris and black mat and another white mat layer. The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x 8 1/2" in size.
