Just a Note

Good Morning All and a very Happy Tuesday!

I hope you're all well and had a great week.  I'm busy working on the projects for September's workshops and also the Xmas ones in October....aargh....I've used the dreaded "C" word!!!

Anyway, let's get on with a project for the Creative Expressions Design Team.

For this one, I've used the Decorative Elements Mask.  So let's get started....

Cut a piece of Foundations Teal Card to size.  Place the Decorative Elements Mask over the top and tape into position.
Using some Cut 'n Dry foam, dab Cosmic Shimmer Flake and Glitter Glue through the chosen corner of the mask.
Remove the mask and apply Cosmic Shimmer Harvest Moon Gilding Flakes.
Do the same on all 4 corners of the card.

Stick some Creative Expressions Double sided adhesive onto a piece of white card.
Using the Spellbinders Italian Collection Calabria Die, cut out.
Remove the protective covering and apply the same Gilding Flakes as before.

Glue onto a piece of Teal Card and cut to size.
Cut a circle of White Card with the Spellbinders Grand Circles.  Matt and layer.

Matt and layer the Teal Background with White and Teal Card.
Attach the circles with 3d foam pads.

Using the Spellbinders Italian Collection Decorative Frames Dies, cut a circle from white card.
Cut from Spellbinders Peony Dies a piece of Teal card.

Stamp "Just a Note" onto a piece of white card with Black Archival Ink.  Heat Emboss with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Powder. Cut out using the Spellbinders Peony Dies.

Matt and layer.  Add to the card with 3d foam pads.

And that's the finished card!

I do love Gilding Flakes....just remember not to sneeze, leave a window or door open and everything should be fine!!

Well, that's it for today.  I'll be back in the morning with a design for the Creative Studios Design Team.
Until the, have a happy, crafty day!

What a fabulous card at the moment I'm hooked on gilding flakes and if it doesn't move it gets gilded lol.
