Tied in a knot...
Today's card is blue and white again however a different technique as I have used the frames I made using the dies in the Rhodes die set form the Greek Island collection. Again it was a demo card so I really hope you managed to catch the show as this is easy to show but hard to explain!
I made frames using the largest and next outline die form the Rhodes set 4 times twice in blue and twice in white. I then added the filigree section that fits within the frames and cut this once in blue and once in white. I layer them together to make 2 frames that are mirror images with one white on blue and one blue on white?!?
next I made a cut in one of the frames (hidden by the ribbon and bow) and twisted the frames together to give this knot look where they appear to be tied over and under each other (this is the difficult bit to explain!) I then threaded a piece of the bluebird satin ribbon through this knot and added a large bow, tied in the same ribbon, a blue dazzler and a couple of stick pins ~I made to match using Sue's stick pin elements.
To make up the card I made a set of layers in embossed card plain card and Pearl corners. I shared the embossing with summer blue gilding wax to match and polished it off using a dry wet wipe.
