I'm still on show samples I'm afraid and don't have anything ready that is christmassy I'm afraid! However with a change of sentiment and maybe colours this one could make a stunning Christmas card!
This is a complex card however the component pieces are quite simple however it has a long ingredient list. Now this is a technique I am planning to demo on my next Create and Craft show which is pencilled in for the 5th November (will try to add some fireworks) and will be a die based show so lots of samples and demo's methinks!
The background is cut using the beveled Glass striplet which is then mounted over a double sided adhesive sheet. I added diamond snow which has a beautiful small crystal effect and in the flesh so to speak really shines!
The main piece is made by sticking a 14cm x 14cm piece of the double sided adhesive sheet onto a 16cm x 16cm piece of black foundation car. I then rubbed perfect medium over the back of the that special touch mask Lattice so that it doesn't stick to the sheet and spread clear texture paste, Creative expressions cosmic shimmer range, over the mask then added midnight snow (this is the black version of the beautiful glitter jewels again form Cosmic Shimmer) I pulled off the mask and washed it immediately as the mask has the midnight snow stuck to it!
I then allowed the piece to dry overnight. Once dry I added more of the diamond snow over the adhesive parts that were hidden by the mask, giving this lovely black and white backing that really shines. There is also a lovely dimension to this backing which isn't really visible in the pictures.
A few mats and layers of black and vintage silver and all I had to do was finish with a strip of ribbon, a messy bow all in black seem binding. The sentiment is form the CE Friends set and is stamped in detail silver embossing powder onto a die cut form the French Collection Borders corners and tags set. Finally, I hear you all breath a sigh of relief, 2 of the Grand Vinery die cuts, again in the silver.
