Good Morning Craft Friends,
I do hope the weather in the North of the country has started to settle, then the hard work starts, I remember from when it happened to my friend, once the water had subsided that's when the sadness set in, realising just how much has been affected by the flood water and nastiness in it. I really do hope that none of our friends or their close family and friends have been affected. Snow is so much more acceptable.
Today's card is another one of mine from my 'Navy/White/Silver' period! haha!! I do love this colour combination though.
For this card I took some navy card that measured about 1/4 inch wider than the die that I used, I then took the Creative Expressions Mini Poinsettia Striplet die and cut into the top and bottom of the navy card, keeping the distance from the edges as equal as possible, I also made sure I took the measurement of where I placed the die so that I could get it in the same place at the other end of my card.
I took some Silver Glitter card and placed here behind the Navy card, adding plenty of Cosmic Shimmer Dries clear Glue to make sure the glitter card stuck. I then matted this onto white and then silver, Navy and then onto my white base card.
I ran some narrow silver ribbon across the centre of my card, sticking it with Cosmic glue on the back of the Navy card.
I then die cut some more Silver Glitter card with the Creative Expressions Snowflake Tag from the Snowflake Border Corner & Tag set, I then stamped my sentiment with Perfect Medium and added Silver embossing powder and heat set it, I then die cut this with a small oval die and then popped that on top of my Silver Snowflake Tag (I snipped into the snowflakes and tucked the edges of the oval in).
I added some silver pearls to the corners to finish the card, the glitter card sheds its glitter quite easily, hence the speckles all over the card, it was over me too, I sparkled all week!
I have Pat and Sue coming over today, which I am looking forward to very much. Paul and I didn't get much done in the way of shopping, we sorted a couple of things, so we are going to try again on Wednesday!
Have a great day my lovelies,
Love and Hugs
