Hi there blog friends, I hope you had a great weekend!! I spent a little time this weekend getting inky and I’m sharing new stamps from Waltzingmouse Stamps. Today is Day One of four days of new releases. Can I just say that I love it when the mail man brings goodies. The sets that are being previewed today are amazing – today they harken back to the days of The Great Gatsby during the Art Deco age. Clean lines and crisp color — the motifs were sleek and angular and everything was dripping with gold. I love doing theme cards so I had to go back and do a little bit of research, but I loved what I was seeing. My card today is made from the classic shapes that were dominant during the Art Deco age.
My card making idea was simple, I cut five of the nested pennants and arranged them in pyramid fashion with the bottom of the triangle at the top. Each piece was edged with gold foil paper. That motif was then added to a card base with a ribbon tied around it. The triangle that holds the sentiment was hand cut.
Here’s your Step By Step recap of die cuts and layers stacked from the bottom up: Start out with a black Card Base 5-1/2″ x 7″, foam tape, gold matting layer cut to 4-7/8″ x 6-7/8″, white layer cut to 4-3/4″ x 6-3/4″, foam tape, five nested pennants arranged as described above, foam tape, die cut layer using Circles SM, foam tape, die cut layer using Circles LG, foam tape, die cut layer using Circles SM, foam tape, die cut layer using Circles LG, add hand cut triangle with sentiment, ribbon, bow and button.
