Something Different Saturday...
Today I am demoing at Grafton Crafts in Huntingdon. If you are around please feel free to pop in and say hello! Back to today's card and I thought Ir was time for a Different Saturday how about a trifold card that stands ion its own?
I made this card in 2 different versions and kept intending too demo it on Hochanda but I really haven't had the chance!
This uses just one die ( and the flowers of course) and is made using the same die that I had so many Emails about that I used for my Birthday Seasons cards a couple of weeks ago.
I stared by making 2 card blanks using the outside oval from the Geneva die, I then stuck these 2 together to make a trip panel card.
Next I cut the outline oval the pierced section and the next oval from Black foundation card. I then cut the next 2 sections in the die using bright white foundation card cutting the last oval in the middle. Finally I added rich red in the centre ( again with the oval cut out, and stuck this to the centre panel of the card blank.
For the second card I used pixie Powdered card for the backing piece and stamped the sentiment using my Larkspur everyday sentiment clear stamp set.
The flowers were made up using the Exquisite poppies die and the olive branch for the foliage.
Hopefully a different way to construct a small card but one that's effective.
