Hi Everyone

Mandy-Jane here. I’m excited to share with you a sneak peek at one of the cards I made for tonight’s show with Tonic Studios at 9pm over on Ideal World – yes it’s Pick of the Day tonight!  See Jodie in action.

I loved working with this collection (but when don’t I  There really are endless possibilities with these 3 sets.  I can see many more ideas too!

Here is my card to hopefully inspire you.  I hope you like it.

What I Did

  1. Make a  7” x 7” card blank from Burgundy card.
  2. Cut a piece of Ivory Linen card at 6 3/4” x 6 3/4”.  Glue to card front.
  3. Cut a a piece of burgundy card at 6 1/2” x 6 1/2”.  Glue to card front.
  4. Cut a piece of ivory card at 6” x 6”.  Using the die strip as a guide and the Super Trimmer, cut an aperture from the right-hand side of the square 3/8” in from the outside 3 edges.  Join the 4th edge to form rectangle.
  5. Cut a piece of patterned paper at 5 3/4” x 5 3/4”.  Glue to centre front of card.
  6. Die the strip piece twice using ivory card.  Using a narrow tape attach the two strips down the centre.  Glue the strips to the rear of the aperture as in picture.
  7. Use 3D foam tape/pads add around outside edges of ivory panel, around the edges of the aperture and down the centre of the strips.  Then attach this panel to front of card.
  8. Die cut the centre flourish piece in burgundy and attach to card.  Also die cut two butterflies and glue into position.
  9. Stamp the greeting onto ivory card with a Versamark ink pad, sprinkle with gold embossing powder and heat.  Let cool and then die cut with matching die.  Attach to card.
  10. Finally to finish add the gold Crystal drops.
  11. Enjoy!
