Hello my dears,
I hope you had a fantastic day. Mine was mixed and all together ok, but I can foresee some little clouds coming. Anyways !
To change my mind a bit (and my mood) nothing better than crafting a little bit and today I wanted to play with forms and colors so I came up with those two cards, pretty different as you can see but hopefully very nice too.
The first card is an intricate game of layouts and impressions. The card is a 7 inches square card I have folded in two and cut the front panel to make a back step from the back one.
Both inside and outside have been matted and layered with some designer papers. The front of the card has been however decorated with another layer of card with designer paper and the sentiment has been cut in a handmade glittery background (I will develop that method in another post), layered with the designer paper used before.
The sentiment has been stamped but not embossed with a Distress Ink (black Soot), and the card has been decorated with just flowers to keep the theme of the card consistent.
… Then Lace.
Here I wanted absolutely to create some intricate front, and leave only the patterns created in both the border and the embossed mat play their own effect, without too much things around.
The card has been therefore cut in two pads from the start and reassembled at the end only.
Several Spellbinders Die Cuts have been used together on both the pearl grey and the golden card, then reassembled to create the front border. Designer paper and plain white card have been used for the inside and front mats, both white card have been embossed to give dimension.
The sentiment has been created on the same type of cards and heat embossed with silver powder.
Golden Organza ribbon has been handmade and the flowers have been glued and sparkled with glitter in gold and white tones.
The card can stand as it is basically created in a “A” form.
I hope you like both of the cards and I see you tomorrow with again some Final Fantasy XIV cards 🙂
