2 more sleeps...
I thought an antidote to all the Christmas brightens would be welcome again today, also although I said it was my last DT project for Creative Expressions last week I have been informed that unlike last year we are continuing through the Christmas Period! Therefore I won't be changing to Sunday ( my new DT day) until the 3rd January next year lol
Today's card is another using this months collection of new craft dies designed by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions and uses, in the main, the Heart of Hearts die.
To start I cut a panel of cobalt blue foundation card and the cut the largest die in the set form the centre top. leaving the die in place I embossed the whole piece using the star swirls embossing folder. Next I covered the raised area with pearl moon gilding wax and polished it to a shine using a dry wet wipe.
For the flourish I cut the outline die in the daisy cluster set using cobalt card and cut the centre separate die in white and glued this behind. I finished with a liberal sprinkling of 3mm stick on pearls to differentiate the centres of the flowers. I added this on top of a seem bonding bow in white under the heart.
The remainder of the card is made of layers of cobalt and white adding some of the configuration corners at each corner.
