Todays card was inspired by Our Sue Wilson, It is a buckle style card.
I started by embossing a piece of green card with the Creative Expressions Eternity Folder, I think this one is y favourite ever.
I used a corner rounder on the corners of the card, and matted it onto a piece of black card and then onto a white card base.
For the focal element of the card I cut out four separate die cuts from the Creative Expressions Californian Collection Decorative B set of dies, and On from the Matting Basics A, I used smaller dies in the Matting Basics (a) set to cut apertures into the centre of one large and two of the three smaller die cuts, I then cut the largest die from Decorative set(B) Californian Collection in white card. I stuck the white die cut onto the card with foam tape and the layered the other three die cuts together vertically across the larger white die cut. I cut a strip of black card with a fork in each end and the matted a piece of green card (slightly smaller) on top of that, I then threaded this through the three dies 'buckling them together' I then stuck all three together and attached it to the white die cut, making sure the strip through the middle is straight. then cut a smaller die from the Decorative Layers (B) set in the green card and topped it with the 2nd smallest of the Matting Basics (A) which I used to cut out my sentiment and edged it with Shabby Shutters distress ink. For the fancy corner pieces I used the French Frills die set from Spellbinders. I then added a few black flat back gems to finish.
I think it could make a good guy card, there are no ribbons and flowers, which is very unusual for me!
