Today's card is made with waste pieces, well to be exact one waste piece that determined the whole card!
The centre panel of this card is made from the waste of a gold die cut form the Austrian collection background die. I say the waste as for the card the background was intended for I wanted a large aperture in the middle. I cut the aperture using the largest die in the Innsbruck set and to make this card I glued it onto a die cut, with the same die, in coconut white card.
I then mounted this over a full die cut of the background and then added it to a further gold panel that I embossed using the Creative Expressions A4 honeycomb haven embossing folder. This was then added to a further mat of the white, a larger embossed piece of Milk card and a final vintage gold layer.
For the front of the 'waste' panel I added the centre panel form the background die and a smaller hand cut oval. The sentiment, form the CE friends sentiment set, is stamped in black archival onto a further background centre die, at a landscape angle and I added a few pearls for effect.
I finally added a strip of champagne silky crush ribbon and a double bow before attaching, with foam tape, the top panel. As always with a large bow I threw in a couple of hatpins and finished.
