More Pond Inspiration...
Tomorrow I will be posting the tutorial for the second half of the box and card I made a couple of weeks ago. This time it's how to make the flower and base card.
Back to today a couple of weeks ago I was inspired by Mrs Duck, view her blog HERE, to buy the Sue Wilson striplet die as she has made so many beautiful things with it. Today's card is the first I made inspired by the die and a trip to Mrs Ducks Pond.
I started by die cutting the striplet three times across a square of PMD (paper Mill Direct as Janine asked what I meant by PMD) cardstock in lilac. I used the die without the outer section to create the filigree effect. Next I mounted this, with foam tape, onto a piece of a darker shade of lilac / purple leaving a thin border before mounting onto a hand cut card blank using cream hammered PMD card (I managed to buy some A3 cardstock which allows me to make the larger size of card I have been making recently.
The centre section is simply the two shades of card hand cut and embossed using Spellbinders Gold Ovals with a sentiment from sentimentals by Crafters Companion. Finally a few paper roses, which match the colour beautifully, bought on my last shopping trip to the U.K.
