Lace work style card
This is such a nice quick card to make and looks so effective when it's finished.
I've used a Spellbinder die for the pinwheel in the centre. Firstly, cut a square of card to the right size then cover it with a double sided adhesive sheet. Run it through the Grand Calibur with the die. Remove the die and covering from the adhesive sheet and dip it into a container of Micro Beads. Make sure that you press the Micro Beads firmly into place.
The next step was to run the white card through the Grand Calibur with a mask for an embossed look.
I cut out 4 corners with a Spellbinder die and glued them onto the main card before matting and layering.
The final touch was a Black Dazzler for the centre.
This is one of the cards we'll be making at a forthcoming workshop at Martell Press.
All of the products mentioned are from Creative Expressions and if you go to their website you can find a list of local retailers.
Hope you all managed to see Dee yesterday on Create and Craft...she had some great ideas for using gilding flakes which I can't wait to try.
I'm really looking forward to the demo at Martell Press on 3rd April and hope to see some of you there.
Until next time, hope you all stay warm and safe in this crazy weather we're having!
