Background Aperture Card


Hi bloggers!  A lovely way to add interest to a card is to use an aperture and recess your main focal element into the recess.  Add a fabulous background before cutting the aperture and have even more interest to your creation!











The finished dimensions are 7" x  8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Wow Sue, a sample to go with the weather - an absolute scorcher, it really is pretty in every shape and form, will certainly look forward to watching you put it together. Whether it's shopping or sitting on your patio eating white chocolate as it dribbles down your fingers in the sun wipping it off your iPad whilst skipping through pinterest I hope it's a good un xxx

Hi Sue
Oh my what a beauty.
The Old Rose Card is such a gorgeous colour. Fast becoming a favourite of mine. I spy the Herringbone die in the background and am learning very fast that this is a real go to for any card - and I have that die!
I have a few videos to catch up on and this one is going to be the first to watch.
Jean.phillips 1 - so pleased I’m not the only one who puts things in a safe place - so safe I can’t remember where it is x
Crewe Trish - so happy to be back x
Not quite sure how I am feeling about the promise of such high temperatures today. Happy Saturday everyone x

Lovely card. It’s good to have a reminder of this technique so I will catch up on the video later.

Thanks for my winning die from the latest release, it was waiting for me in my post box when I got home yesterday. I just have to finish off the last of the birthday cards then I can use it to create some advance greetings for this year’s Christmas cards.
