Hi there friends! I have a card to share today and have been having a fab time cutting and testing out dies. I’m not stuck but so much in a groove that I’m enjoying right now with clean cut die cut cards with a classic flair. My mom is watching me create and was quite tickled with this card and of course it’s so much fun having her here that listened intently to her advice. She especially loved the use of vellum to give a soft muted look at the pattern, texture and pearls behind everything. I hope it’s not too soon to think about Autumn, but I am with this lovely sentiment by Quietfire Design – Autumn is a Second Spring.
I used four dies on this card. The background is made using three border strips of Spellbinders Renaissance Border One. The frame is made using Spellbinders Astoria Decorative Elements and using Spellbinders Astoria Label to cut the aperature and the vellum. The golden leaves were made using Spellbinders Loopy Roll Flowers.
Walk Through on How to Make the Card
The base of the card is 6″ x 7-1/4″ on cream card stock. I used gold paper cut to 5-7/8″ x 7″ as a background to layer on three strips of the Renaissance Border One which are combined by overlapping the edges.
The Astoria Label Decorative Elements is pretty lacey, so I thought it couldn’t clash and you’d be able to see through it well. I cut the largest die and cut the aperature then layered vellum behind it, attaching the vellum with Ranger Glossy Accents.
I used a bow to span the card and thought filigree gold leaves would be a different embellishment that didn’t get in the way of the bow.
