I hope you are all set for a great weekend and have survived the earth tremors and the snow. We are going to Brighton for the weekend, I am posting this just before we set off, I hope the weather is kind to us. Of course I will be checking out all the craft shops in the area as today is pay day.
This is another project in my quest to keep ahead of my card making - a Mother's Day card. I saw a card on Sue Wilson's Blog where she had used a border die to create a background and I decided that I would have a go.
I cut the border six time making sure that I embossed them each time so that the die cuts had all the gorgeous detail. I cut all the mats I wanted and the final one was some patterned paper from my stash.
The patterned sheet was covered with a double sided sticky sheet cut to fit. Then after some juggling I arranged the border die cuts down the sheet over lapping them slightly.They did overlap the sheet and needed trimming. Once they were stuck down I covered the whole thing with CS Glitter Jewels Diamond Sprinkles and rubbed it into the exposed sticky sheet so no stickiness was left.
I made the tag by cutting some matching paper and cutting up a sentiment cut with a Signature die.
I made the flower with some more of my Sue Wilson dies, they do make pretty flowers. A flat backed pearl was added to the centre of each flower.
It really does sparkle when it catches the light. I will be working on the Save the Date cards soon that's if I ever get round to ordering the card.
I hope you have a great weekend.
