More Teal...

Happy Thursday,

As I always say with this colour choice I know its not everyones cup of tea but I can't stop posting these cards as I just love the colour sorry!

I stared by cutting the Dorado gemini using the bottom edge die from a long strip of the Teal Foundation card.  I added a piece of coconut white card the same size cut at the bottom using the outline die and added the teal on top.   I then cut a larger strip of black and cut a thin border using just the outline bottom die.

Next I cut the detail die form the Tessa Die into the top of the teal card adding the next outline die in the set.  I then cut into the white layering the next die in the set and added the black back panel with foam tape behind.




















For the base layer I embossed apiece of coconut white card with the victorian tile embossing folder and highlighted the embossing using the graphite gilding polish.  Finally I added layers of the black and white and a stretched tag of white and black form the aperture.

Enjoy...

  3. Morning John, please don't apologise for the colour, yes it is not everyone's cup of tea as you say but if it is not to someones liking they can always substitute a different colour to suit the recipient. I like how you have made this one.

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

  15. Hi John
    This is my "go to" colour when making cards for men. The gilding polish on the bottom layer makes the difference on this card.
