Time to Enjoy...
One from the vaults today from the show samples I made for the last pick of the day shows upon Create and Craft earlier this year. As I am sure you know I sign off my blog posts with the word Enjoy and I was over the moon when sue designed an Enjoy die! This is the first one I cut form the Expressions range and made this card with the resultant piece!
To make the card I die cut the oval from the Austrian collection salzburg die in periwinkle blue and then cut a smaller aperture using the oval from the Vienna die in coconut white. I mounted these above each other and cut the white piece with a slightly larger border.
next I cut 4 of the ornamental corners (the set contains 2 dies which are designed as opposites of each other) in cobalt card and mounted them as a frame around the blue card. I then simply added the Enjoy die cut in white and then added a few layers of the periwinkle, cobalt and coconut white card to make this 5x7" card.
To pick out the detail on the corner pieces I added some dots of cosmic pearl PVA and finished. Hopefully a card you can send for any occasion and one that's worth having for those moments when we need to send one quickly!
