Good Sunday morning all! I found a couple of cards that both use the Belgian Background for today's double day showing. First up, I cut the Belgian Background out of the Classic Elegance paper. I backed it with vellum for a soft look, then cut the centre of it out. I added mounting foam to the back to raise it for dimension. Next I cut the decorative die from the Antwerp out of coconut white card. I seated the background over it, then added a piece of wisteria card behind it. I stamped my sentiment and cut it out and mounted it in the centre of the card. I used Wax paper to cut several of the Exquisite poppies to add around the centre and I tied a bow with some purple Bakers Twine and added it below the sentiment. I completed the card with white and wisteria mats The finished dimensions are 6 1/4" x 8 1/2" in size. Scroll down for card number two.
For card number two, the Belgian Background was cut out of coconut white card twice, leaving the cutting edges out until the very centre one. I placed a thin strip of mounting foam between them but added more on the bottom to raise the overall background. I stamped my sentiment and added it to the aperture in the centre. I used the Background Noble Rectangles to add a frame around it. On a separate piece of white card, I added a sticky sheet, then peeled the backing off and coated it with silvery mica powder. I added the background over the mica piece so it showed through from the front. I finished the piece with a simple white on white mat with piercing. The finished dimensions are 6 3/4" x 8 1/2" in size.
