Firstly Thanx for all the feedback and warm comments on my first solos TV appearance! I had a wonderful time and it was great to have so many good luck wishes emailed into the shows band to me personally. I will be back in early November and spent yesterday planning what will be in the show. I can say it will be focused around die cutting with my selection of colours, ribbon and card.
Back to toady I wanted to show this golden card as a thank you especially as I thought it would make a beautiful thank you card. This was shown briefly as one of my samples on last Thursdays One Day wonder shows with Sue (and latterly myself)
This is quite a simple card to produce however it is a litre time consuming as you have to wait for the background to dry.
I started by cutting a square at 15cm x 15cm and covered it in a double sided self adhesive sheet (one of the most useful and versatile products I have used!) and then covered it in the Cosmic Shimmer silver dreams gilding flakes. I then stuck down the That Special touch counterpane mask and added Cosmic Shimmer Aurora sparkle paste which has a stunning shimmer but allows the gilding to come through, a double shine!
I mounted the whole piece on a card 21cm x 21cm made from layers of vintage gold embossed with Sue's A4 tied together embossing folder and vintage silver layers to keep the silver and gold theme in place.
I haven't added a sentiment for this one as I wasn't sure what we were using on the show.
I simply love the way this card shines!
